Comment

CARB must determine a way from Amazon crude

As Californians and US citizens, we need to transition away from crude oil. Fossil fuel expansion in California and in the Amazon must end.  A transition plan is required.

The Amazon is an important carbon sink, necessary for climate stability and has rich biodiversity.  It needs to be preserved.  As a Californian, I want nothing to do with its destruction.

I was dismayed to learn that California consumes nearly 50% of all oil exports from the Amazon globally - nearly 1 in 9 gallons pumped in-state on average. 

Again, I don’t want to be complicit in driving new oil drilling in the Amazon - the California Air Resources Board (CARB) needs to regulate refineries’ crude sources and volumes. No oil from the Amazon.

In addition to ensuring no crude sourced from the Amazon is used in CA, the CARB needs to ensure California refineries are not getting crude from areas where there are human rights violations
