SubjectCARB Scoping Plan Update - comments

I am writing to comment on the Draft 2022 Scoping Plan Update. Having reviewed the update, it seems to me that it could do more to accelerate the reduction of greenhouse gas emissions and achieve carbon neutrality earlier than 2045 - both of which are important not only to deal with climate change, but also to safeguard the health and safety of Californians and promote the economic growth of renewable technologies in California.

I strongly urge CARB to revise the Plan to do the following: (1) accelerate the phase-out of oil and gas extraction and oil refining; (2) remove any further planned investment in fossil fuel infrastructure; (3) eliminate or significantly reduce reliance on unproven and costly technologies to prolong polluting fuel sources (and increase reliance on existing resources and technologies for any carbon capture and sequestration); (4) embrace more robust transportation sector targets; and (5) accelerate the decarbonization of buildings and appliances.

Thank you very much for your consideration.
