Comment 209 for 2022 Climate Change Scoping Plan (scopingplan2022) - Non-Reg.

SubjectWe need bolder action on the 2022 California Climate Change Scoping Plan

I am a resident and voter in Sherman Oaks, California writing to urge the board to make a faster, just transition away from fossil fuels and to set stronger benchmarks around reducing our reliance on Amazon crude oil. 

I am concerned that CA consumes nearly 50% of all oil exports from the Amazon globally. The board must present a plan to significantly reduce or eliminate our crude oil imports without expanding domestic oil drilling.

I urge you to commit California to a regulatory agenda that ensures that California refineries are not sourcing crude from regions where there are Indigenous rights violations or from regions where new oil drilling in the Amazon is being planned.

Finally, now is the time- both to help Californian's economically and to protect our children's future- to commit California to new fuel efficiency standards and expanded electrification of fleets that consume the most Amazon oil. Expansion of EVs broadly, and public transportation goals to reduce domestic consumption equivalent to Amazon oil import totals.
