Comment 272 for 2022 Climate Change Scoping Plan (scopingplan2022) - Non-Reg.
|Subject||California Climate Change Scoping Plan|
I am concerned that California consumes nearly 50% of all oil
exports from the Amazon globally (nearly 1 in 9 gallons pumped
in-state on average).
l am calling on the California Air Resources Board (CARB) to
stop being complicit in driving new oil drilling in the Amazon and
I am asking CARB to regulate refineries’ crude oil
sources and volumes.
I am asking CARB to 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
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.
CARB must ensure that stronger policies are in place to
end California complicity in new oil drilling in the Amazon once
and for all.
