Comment 73 for 2022 Climate Change Scoping Plan (scopingplan2022) - Non-Reg.

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 cities.
