Comment

I am appalled by the inadequate response to climate change that the scoping plan represents. 

It would appear that while "scoping" you looked through the wrong end of your telescope making the huge dangers of further climate change appear very tiny. It's not and your response is ludicrously inadequate. 

As the world's fifth largest economy we need to set an inspirational example for others to follow.    We need to take immediate and far reaching actions to rapidly reduce fossil fuel production and usage. Half of Amazon oil goes to California - ban it now! That could be the biggest immediate action sending a huge message: "Stop destroying our natural world!" to the fossil fuel barons and autocratic petrostates. 

Stop drilling oil. Ban new wells and require proper capping of old wells within a mile of schools and homes. Set a timeline for permanent closure of all wells and payment of fines for environmental destruction and health consequences. 

Accelerate the rollout of electric vehicle charging stations, running increase production of electric vehicles, heat pumps, induction stoves, solar panels, batteries and inverters. We need many more solar rooftops - end attempts to tax solar and cancel PCIA charges. 

All actions must be taken sooner not later. Tipping points won't wait or forgive you.
