Comment 492 for Draft 2022 Climate Change Scoping Plan (scopingplan2022) - Non-Reg.

SubjectNotice of Public Meeting to Consider the Draft 2022 Climate Change Scoping Plan

Hello, my name is Marlene Chavez, I am a resident of Moreno Valley, California. I’m speaking on the CARB SCOPING PLAN.

The reason why I care about this issue so much is because CARB needs to create more ambitious plans to stop the environmental injustices ongoing in our state and prevent the worst impacts of climate catastrophe. In our rapidly deteriorating climate, CARB wants to keep using fossil fuels, which harms the lungs and health of my community. Every part of the state’s fossil fuel chain disproportionately affects the health and well-being of working class people of color in California. We need CARB to create the road to zero emissions for the health of both our people and our planet. A full phaseout of fossil fuels by 2045. We must end oil extraction by 2035, phase out oil refining by 2045, phase out gas fired power plants by 2035, eliminate gas appliances by 2030, and decommission the gas distribution system by 2045. More clean cars, trucks, and mass transit for working class Californians. Transition to 100% zero-emission vehicles by 2035 and lower the amount of vehicle miles traveled by 30% by 2035. A transition to clean, renewable, zero-emissions electricity by 2035 with retirement of all gas plants and no new gas plants.
