Comment 467 for 2022 Climate Change Scoping Plan (scopingplan2022) - Non-Reg.

First NameChiara

SubjectFurther Action for a No Fossil Fuel Future

The draft Scoping Plan is a huge step backward for California, doubling down on fossil fuel infrastructure instead of phasing out fossil fuels. It allows for a massive expansion of dirty gas-fired power plants and calls for billions in public subsidies for risky, ineffective carbon capture and storage technology that extends the life of oil refineries.

This is unacceptable. I demand that this plan do all that it can to create a livable future in California. We have a narrowing window of approximately 7 years according to the IPCC report to fully transition off of fossil fuels. The plan must include a complete phase-out of all fossil fuel infrastructure to truly enact a climate-safe future. This comment appeals to CARB to remove all fossil fuel infrastructure support from the scoping plan. We cannot allow for any further path dependency to lead us to our destruction.
