Comment 241 for 2022 Climate Change Scoping Plan (scopingplan2022) - Non-Reg.
|Subject||The Draft Scoping Plan Needs to be Improved!|
I am writing to urge you to strengthen and improve the Draft
2022 Scoping Plan Update. Scientists have increasingly raised the
alarm that this decade is our last chance to make significant and
meaningful changes in our transportation, energy, building, and
other major infrastructure to prevent an irreversible climate
catastrophe, which is why I am disappointed that the Draft Scoping
Plan fails to accelerate the targets to reduce greenhouse gas
emissions to 40% below 1990 levels by 2030 or to achieve carbon
neutrality no sooner than 2045. It is simply not good enough to
meet the urgency of the climate crisis and the desperate need for
bold actions. CARB must achieve a more ambitious Scoping Plan that
leads to an accelerated pathway to carbon neutrality so that the
state’s 40 million residents and future generations of
Californians can live in and thrive in a cleaner and healthier
I strongly urge the California Air Resources Board to adopt a
more ambitious plan on how our state will combat the most
catastrophic impacts of climate change in the crucial years ahead.
To accomplish this, CARB must improve the Draft Scoping Plan by
accelerating a phase-out of oil and gas extraction and oil
refining; not making any more investment in fossil fuel
infrastructure; eliminating or significantly reducing our reliance
on unproven and costly technologies to prolong polluting fuel
sources; pursuing more robust transportation sector targets; and
decarbonizing buildings. The escalating climate crisis demands that
CARB adopts a more ambitious Scoping Plan, one with the vision and
conviction to provide the solutions that are needed to overcome the
crisis that we face. Thank you for your consideration.
