Comment 518 for 2022 Climate Change Scoping Plan (scopingplan2022) - Non-Reg.

SubjectClimate Above All Else

As a California resident, parent, and climate activist, I want to see my state dominate the emisions race to zero. I believe that our highest priority as a state is to show the world how fast a transition toward zero carbon emissions can be made. California is by itself, one of the most powerful economies in the world. We understand the stakes of the issue better than any other economy. We have the obligation to change now. We need to win the race so that the world sees how it can be done.

Make the change dramatic. We are in a RACE. The opportunity for slow experiments and cautious execution was in the past, while we were mired by an industrial assault on truth. Now the assault is clear, solutions are available, people are educated, and we are frustrate by an oil industry that is feasting on us at the gas pump. 

In 2030, it will look odd to see a roof that doesn't have solar installed. It will feel absurd to drive a clunky car with thousands of moving parts that fumes waste into the sky. We will scratch our heads at the volume of unburnt natural gas leaking from pipes and how we frack the earth to replace it. 

Please make dramatic changes now. Put everything else second. Let's win the race to zero. Thank you.
