Comment

I want to thank CARB and other CA agencies that are working to plan and institute a pathway to decarbonization for the state. CA has been and I assume will continue to be a leader among the states in both planning and action. Since, however, we cannot count on other states meeting the call adequately or quickly enough, it is critical that CA be even more ambitious and deliver on its ambition. 

 

I urge you to strengthen and improve the Draft 2022 Scoping Plan Update. 

 

I urge you to accelerate the targets to reduce greenhouse gas emissions to 40% below 1990 levels by 2030 in order to achieve carbon neutrality earlier than 2045. 

 

I urge CARB to improve the Draft Scoping Plan by:

• accelerating a phase-out of oil and gas extraction and oil refining; 

• curbing investment in fossil fuel infrastructure; 

• decarbonizing buildings

• pursuing stronger transportation sector targets; 

• reducing our reliance on unproven technologies for removing and/or storing carbon. 

 

Thank you for your consideration.
