Comment 248 for Draft 2022 Climate Change Scoping Plan (scopingplan2022) - Non-Reg.
|Subject||Stop consuming Amazonian Crude Oil|
To Whom it May Concern,
Please prioritize ending reliance on Amazon crude as part of
your climate change plans.
California consumes nearly 50% of all oil exports from the
Amazon globally (nearly 1 in 9 gallons pumped in-state on
The California Air Resources Board (CARB) should not be
complicit in driving new oil drilling in the Amazon and you need to
regulate refineries’ crude sources and volumes.
Please 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.
As extraction communities in California and 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
