SubjectMake the Scoping Plan Stronger!

I echo all the comments that push for us to be carbon neutral closer to 2035-- however I know that this is easier said then done, so I will pivot to changes that are more targeted, but could very well push us to carbon neutrality much quicker!
- Do not include the building of 10 GW of Natural Gas Power-- I understand we need more power, but NO MORE FOSSIL FUELS. This should be accounted for with Solar and other renewables

- On that note, push for Natural Gas and Oil Extraction to be done by 2035-- not 2045!

- Push for 100 % of new appliances to be electric by 2035, not 80%. Don't worry, california is ready for electric appliances. 

- Do not bank so much of carbon capture technology (direct air capture). You goal of 100 MMT by 2045 is very optimistic for a technology we only do 0.01 MMT of right now! Use proven technologies like tree-planting, composting, and soil regeneration to remove carbon out of the atmosphere. 


Thanks so much for you work on the so far. The scoping plan is an impressive, optimisitic plan for our future. The time and stakes simply call for it to be a bit more aggressive and all-encompassing.
