Subject2022 Draft Scoping Plan

Dear Honorable Governor Gavin Newsom and the California Air Resources Board,


I urge you to update the 2022 Draft Scoping Plan in a way that swiftly tackles the current climate crisis in light of recent scientific findings. The strategies proposed in the Scoping Plan must be revised to produce quicker, more impactful results that prioritize the rights of frontline communities.


We need to accelerate emissions targets, drastically reduce the manufacture and use of fossil fuels, and speed up the transition to truly renewable energy. In addition to promoting e-vehicles, we need to vastly increase investment in mass transit in both urban and non-urban areas of the state.


Carbon capture, utilization and sequestration (CCUS) is not a viable remedy as it only postpones the release of CO2 while perpetuating polluting infrastructure and environmental injustice. 


Please revise the Plan to bring about genuine solutions to our ongoing climate disaster. Thank you for your consideration.
