Subjectmake Scoping Plan stronger

Please make the Scoping Plan stronger.  Alternative 3 perpetuates our reliance on fossil fuels, and scientists all agree that we must aggressively stop the burning of fossil fuels to avoid the worst impacts of climate change.  We are running out of time!

1.  Achieve carbon neutrality by 2035, not 2045

2. Do not rely on CCS.  it is much better to just stop burning fossil fuels than to capture the carbon that is emitted.  This just perpetuates the oil and gas industry. 

3. Do not build any more gas powered plants.  Invest in expanded renewable energy sources

4.  Stop any future fracking.

5. Accelerate the phase out of gas appliances in buildings.  All buildings should be all-electric by 2026.  Do not support proposals of the IOUs to mix hydrogen with fuel gas for homes.  Just electrify them - cheaper and gets us off fossil fuels quicker.

6.  Require existing building appliance sales be 80% electric by 2025 and 100% by 2030.

7. Incentivize retrofits, especially for communities of concern and low income individuals.

8. Terminate all incentives and rebates for gas appliances.

We are in a climate crisis.  Please take bold action.

Thank you.
