Comment

Climate change is wreaking havoc on our wolrd, especially here in California with the escalating wildfire problems and drought.  We are running out of time to do something about this and to prevent the massive suffering that will happen if we do nothing.  California is a world leader, and can set a great example for other states and countries.  We need to scale up investment in zero-emission and mass transportation options that work for our communities. Clean cars, clean trucks and transit must be accessible and affordable to working-class Californians. We call on CARB to:

  1. Roll out a full, coordinated phase out of fossil fuels, with targets for oil refining by 2045, oil and gas extraction by 2035, and a clean electric grid by 2035.
  2. Accelerate and scale up investments in clean cars, trucks, and mass transit for working class Californians across the state.
  3. Eliminate reliance on climate policy dead ends like Carbon Capture, Utilization, and Storage (CCUS) on polluting fuel sources

Please take quick action on these actions that will make a difference.  We don't have time to wait.

Sincerely,

Katherine Young, MD
