Comment 251 for 2022 Climate Change Scoping Plan (scopingplan2022) - Non-Reg.

SubjectDivest from Amazon crude and extraction

I am writing to demand that California invest in a just transition away from Amazon crude and extraction in the state. California currently consumes nearly 50% of all oil exports from the Amazon globally. I don’t want to be complicit in driving new oil drilling in the Amazon. I'm asking CARB to regulate refineries’ crude sources and volumes by requiring CA refineries to ensure that they are not sourcing crude oil from regions where there are human rights violations or sourcing crude from areas of new drilling in the Amazon.

CARB also needs to present a plan for California to reduce and/or eliminate its consumption of crude from the Amazon and commit to new fuel efficiency standards and expanded electrification of fleets that consume the most Amazon oil.

Thank you.
