SubjectWe need a strong plan to reduce carbon emissions!

I appreciate your work in creating a plan to reduce Califorina's carbon emissions.  But it needs to be much stronger and faster.  As you know, climate change is affecting all of us and getting worse, particularly in CA where we're anticipating a horrendous fire season.  We need strong and immediate action to reduce greenhouse gases, not plans that put all of the serious reductions off somewhere into the future and rely on unproven technologies to pull carbon out of the atmosphere.  We need to prioritize the health of our most vulnerable communites, communites that have been suffering from air pollution from drilling and refineries for years.  We can save lives now and save money on health costs by reducing fossil fuel extraction and processing now not later--listen to your Environmental Justice Advisory Council!.  We also need to immediately prioritize deep reductions in emessions of short-lived greenhouse gases, like refrigerants and methane.  California is a rich state and can and should be a leader in the nation and the world in showing how to respond to this crisis.

Thank you

Sue Hilton
