SubjectCARB Must Adopt a More Ambitious Scoping Plan

I’d like for the California Air Resources Board to adopt a significantly more ambitious plan on how California will combat the most catastrophic impacts of climate change in the crucial years ahead.  Scientists have increasingly raised the alarm that this decade is our last chance to make significant and meaningful changes in our transportation, energy, building, and other major infrastructure to prevent an irreversible climate catastrophe, which is why I am disappointed that the Draft Scoping Plan fails to accelerate the targets to reduce greenhouse gas emissions to 40% below 1990 levels by 2030 or to achieve carbon neutrality no earlier than 2045

The escalating climate crisis demands that CARB adopts a more ambitious Scoping Plan, one with the vision and conviction to provide the solutions that are needed to overcome the crisis that we face.  CARB must improve the Draft Scoping Plan by accelerating a phase-out of oil and gas extraction and oil refining; not making any more investment in fossil fuel infrastructure; eliminating or significantly reducing our reliance on unproven and costly technologies to prolong polluting fuel sources; pursuing more robust transportation sector targets; and decarbonizing buildings.

Thank you.
