Comment 250 for 2022 Climate Change Scoping Plan (scopingplan2022) - Non-Reg.

SubjectStop 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 average).

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
