Comment

I am commenting on your plan, because I do not believe it meets or takes seriously the imminent threats of our changing climate.  The burning and use of fossil fuels is literally burning up California and our lungs.  We can not delay, as your plan does, getting to carbon neutrality by 2045.  Your plan does not even meet the Governor's challenge of accelerating our climat target to 2035.  

Instead the plan does not shut down any of the gas power plants currently operating, but keeps all gas plants operating and proposes to build new ones.  And it relies on unproven technologies instead  of proven renewable energy sources. We need to rapidly reduce fossil fuel emissions and the plan does not do this.

We can not keep doing the same thing and expect different results. I want to live in a community where children do not have to carry an inhaler in their school bag.  Where wildfires do not destroy peoples homes and their lives. We need the Board to be bold and put forth a Scoping Plan that will meet the challenges for a safe and healthy future for all the citizens of California, and that includes your children and grandchildren.

Sincerely,

Marinell Daniel, age 83
