SubjectClimate Change Scoping Plan 2022

The California Air Resources Board has heard from many people that the Scoping Plan needs to be vastly improved to realistically attempt to avert the worst impacts of climate change. I am in agreement with many of the comments you have received. Some changes that others have suggested and that I, too, urge the Board to make are:

  1. Eliminate the reliance on direct carbon capture to reduce emissions by 20%. The technology for this is unproven and expensive.

  2. Shorten the time-line for removing short-lived greenhouse gases. The goal should be to reduce HFC’s b 90 - 100% by 2030. The 50% reduction goal of fugitive emissions of methane is insufficient and needs to be more vigorously addressed.

  3. Identify a date (2045 or earlier) to end all oil refining.

  4. Revise the date to end oil extraction to 2035, not 2045.

  5. Eliminate investment in fossil fuel infrastructure.

  6. Require that all appliances be electric by 2030.
