Comment 142 for 2022 Climate Change Scoping Plan (scopingplan2022) - Non-Reg.

SubjectScoping Plan Must Prioritize Near-term Reductions and Consider Pathways to 2030

The current draft scoping plan is unacceptable because it does not seriously attempt to determine pathways for meeting the state's legally-binding 2030 climate targets. CARB must present robust planning for all statewide statutory targets, using proven technologies. Instead, the current plan obfuscates the state's potential near-term failures, while over-relying on unproven carbon dioxide removal strategies in the long term. CARB should be prioritizing emissions reductions in the near term, rather than postponing the bulk of the work to the end of the study window, a strategy which creates unacceptable risks of failure, and which allows for additional emissions and additional warming during the interim period.
