Re: My comments are for the recently released
“2022 Scoping Plan Update.” It is an aggressive
plan to not only reduce greenhouse gas emissions, but it threatens
every agricultural operation, every small business and small city,
rural town and many of the underserved communities. It seems
there are better ways to reach environmental goals without
threatening the livelihoods of all Californians. CARB
policies should be a reflection of all the affected stakeholders.
Vehicle miles traveled will hurt individual mobility and hurt the
goods movement ability, especially in agriculture. The
phase-out of renewable natural gas, diesel and petroleum will
result in higher costs for consumers and higher costs for small
farmers like me to replace with electric, which I cannot
afford. I am a small farmer. I deliver vegetables to
farmer’s markets throughout the state. I worry about
how I will be able to move my products in a timely manner without
the worry of spoilage. Please consider taking more time to make
these decisions especially for the rural communities and small
