Comment 276 for 2022 Climate Change Scoping Plan (scopingplan2022) - Non-Reg.
|Subject||The Draft 2022 Scoping Plan Update must be stronger!|
I am writing
to urge you to strengthen and improve the Draft 2022 Scoping Plan
Update. Scientists have increasingly raised the alarm that this
decade is our last chance to make significant and meaningful
changes in our transportation, energy, building, and other major
infrastructure to prevent an irreversible climate catastrophe,
which is why I am disappointed that the Draft Scoping Plan fails to
accelerate the targets to reduce greenhouse gas emissions to 40%
below 1990 levels by 2030 or to achieve carbon neutrality no
earlier than 2045. It is simply not good enough to meet the urgency
of the climate crisis and the desperate need for bold actions. CARB
must achieve a more ambitious Scoping Plan that leads to an
accelerated pathway to carbon neutrality so that the state’s
40 million residents and future generations of Californians can
live in and thrive in a cleaner and healthier
urge the California Air Resources Board to adopt a more ambitious
plan on how our state will combat the most catastrophic impacts of
climate change in the crucial years ahead. To accomplish this, CARB
must improve the Draft Scoping Plan by accelerating a phase-out of
oil and gas extraction and oil refining; not making any more
investment in fossil fuel infrastructure; eliminating or
significantly reducing our reliance on unproven and costly
technologies to prolong polluting fuel sources; pursuing more
robust transportation sector targets; and decarbonizing buildings.
The escalating climate crisis demands that CARB adopts a more
ambitious Scoping Plan, one with the vision and conviction to
provide the solutions that are needed to overcome the crisis that
we face. Thank you for your consideration.
