Comment 215 for 2022 Climate Change Scoping Plan (scopingplan2022) - Non-Reg.

First NameElizabeth
Last NameLevy
SubjectThe California Climate Change Scoping Plan

California consumes nearly 50% of all oil exports from the Amazon globally (nearly 1 in 9 gallons pumped in-state on average).

We have an obligation to our state/country/planet to change this--not by expanding oil production in CA, or by destroying the Amazon, but by leading the country and the world to stop using Amazonian crude oil.  We need to require California refineries to ensure that they are not sourcing crude oil from regions where there are human rights violations and to require refineries to ensure that they will not source crude from areas of new drilling in the Amazon.

PleasePleasePlease do not make California a part of expanding, funding and profiting from the destruction of the Amazon!  This is entirely within your decision-making process, and please make no mistake about it, your decision affects our entire planet.  This is not even slightly and is fact.

As extraction communities in California (along with Indigenous communities) both face ongoing oil spills and pollution, it’s important that the state doesn’t rely on increasing domestic production in order to reduce its use of Amazon crude. We need a just and sustainable future that doesn’t involve fossil fuel expansion at home or in the Amazon.

Thank you for your all-important consideration,
~Elizabeth Levy
