SubjectDraft Scoping Plan 2022 not strong enough

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. It is simply not good enough!  CARB must achieve a more ambitious Scoping Plan that leads to an accelerated pathway to carbon neutrality.

The California Air Resources Board needs to adopt a more ambitious plan. The Draft Scoping Plan needs to accelerate a phase-out of oil and gas extraction and oil refining; eliminate more investment in fossil fuel infrastructure; eliminate or significantly reduce our reliance on unproven and costly technologies to prolong polluting fuel sources; pursue more robust transportation sector targets; and decarbonizing buildings. CARB needs to adopt a more ambitious Scoping Plan, one with the vision and conviction to provide the solutions needed to overcome the climate crisis we are already experiencing. Thank you for your consideration.
