Dear California Air Resources Board,
Californians deserve clean air and a future beyond oil and gas.
We deserve clean transportation options that work for all of our
But the draft 2022 Scoping Plan is a huge step backward for
California, doubling down on fossil fuel infrastructure at a time
when we need to be phasing out fossil fuels. California can do so
much better than this.
In this year’s Scoping Plan, we have an opportunity to
commit California to bold action. I am calling on you include the
following as priorities in the 2022 Climate Change Scoping
1. 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 vehicles and
mass transit for working class Californians.
3. Eliminate reliance on climate policy dead ends like Carbon
Capture and Storage (CCS) on polluting fuel sources.
Will you help California achieve our climate goals by including
the priorities above in this year’s Scoping Plan?
