Comment 249 for 2022 Climate Change Scoping Plan (scopingplan2022) - Non-Reg.

SubjectAmazon Oil Refineries

To Whom It May Concern,

It has been brought to my attention that California buys crude oil from sources in the Amazon basin to be refined in our state and sold.  This certainly seems to go against what our state has voted for; which is strong climate action to help stem the worst due to our planet's rapid overheating! I find it hard to believe that our Governor touts progressive climate policies and yet allows companies to do exactly the opposite of what they should, which is stop importing oil, especially from such an important ecological area like the Amazon, and stop refineries from polluting California's coasts. I would urge you to prohibit any more Amazonian oil imports. California Must be a climate change problem solver, not a state that adds to  global heating!

Thank You

Tracy Elliott
