Comment 491 for Draft 2022 Climate Change Scoping Plan (scopingplan2022) - Non-Reg.
|Subject||Draft 2022 Climate Change Scoping Plan |
I urge you to
strengthen and improve substantially and resoundingly the Draft
2022 Scoping Plan Update. Worldwide, 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. I am shocked and disappointed that the
Draft Scoping Plan fatally fails to accelerate the targets to
reduce greenhouse gas emissions to 40-50% below 1990 levels by
2030. Nor does it act to achieve carbon neutrality by no
later than 2040. It is a resounding failure to meet the
urgency of the climate crisis and the desperate need for bold
actions. CARB >>must<< achieve a far more ambitious
Scoping Plan that leads to an accelerated pathway to carbon
neutrality so that the state’s 40 million residents and
future generations of Californians can live in and thrive in a
cleaner and healthier environment.
Therefore! I strongly urge the California Air Resources Board to
adopt a far more ambitious and rigorous--and strongly, potently and
aptly enforceable-- plan on how our state will combat the most
catastrophic impacts of climate change in the crucial years ahead.
CARB must severely improve the Draft Scoping Plan by
accelerating a phase-out of oil and gas extraction and oil
refining; freezing and eliminating investment in fossil fuel
infrastructure; eliminating or severely reducing our reliance on
unproven and costly technologies to prolong polluting fuel sources;
pursuing more robust transportation sector targets; and
decarbonizing buildings. The escalating climate crisis demands that
CARB adopts a far more ambitious Scoping Plan, one with the vision
and conviction to provide the solutions that are needed to overcome
the crisis that we face. You must act now...not down the
line. Thank you.
