I'm writing to request provisions to the 2022 Draft Scoping plan. Most importantly, we need to accelerate the transition away from fossil fuels and towards the deployment of existing, cost-effective, just solutions.

Specifically, I'd like to see:

1. Fossil fuel extraction phased out by 2030,

2. Gas-fired electric power generation phased out by 2035,

3. Investment in public transportation and phasing out the gas-powered vehicles,

4. Phase out gas appliances from our buildings.

These bare-minimum changes are important to me as a Californian because my community will be heavily impacted by droughts, wildfires, and sea level rise. Not only that, but other states and countries around the world look towards California for climate policy, so if we don't set the bar high, communities around the world could fall short of effective climate action. We have to do the right thing here.
