To the California Air Resources Board:

I am a California resident living in San Francisco. As you are well aware, our state is still chocking in air pollution, and as this fire season approaches, the western United States has already seen record burns. Once again, we face the prospect of a twin disaster: power shutoffs and wildfires, leading to toxic air pollution and widespread destruction. 

California needs to scale up investment in zero-emission and mass transportation options that work for our communities. Clean cars, clean trucks and transit must be accessible and affordable to working-class Californians. I call on CARB to:

  1. Roll out a full, coordinated phase out of fossil fuels, with targets for oil refining by 2045, oil and gas extraction by 2035, and a clean electric grid by 2035.
  2. Accelerate and scale up investments in clean cars, trucks, and mass transit for working class Californians across the state. In particular, if we hope to scale up electric vehicles, we must invest much more in widespread charging infrastructure, including at multi-family dwellings.
  3. Eliminate reliance on climate policy dead ends like Carbon Capture, Utilization, and Storage (CCUS) on polluting fuel sources.

Thank you,

Atid Kimelman
