Comment 252 for 2022 Climate Change Scoping Plan (scopingplan2022) - Non-Reg.

First NameValeria
Last NameAceves
SubjectCARB Scoping Plan

Good afternoon, my name is Valeria Aceves. I am 16 years old, a resident of Fresno County, and a fellow with California Youth Vs.Big Oil and the Central California Environmental Justice Network. I am speaking for the Latinex and low income youth. I’m asking the board to reconsider the CARB SCOPING PLAN. I’m here today because the poor air quality in the Central Valley has led to a negative impact on my community. Asthma, heart disease, and pollution rates continue to rise in the Central Valley. This is negatively affecting my communities’ health, food, water, soil, future, and careers as we are an agricultural reliant and low income community. My community should have the right to healthy air and lungs, and my peers and I, the youth, should have the right to a sustainable and healthy future. I am asking the board to not leave the responsibilities and difficulties of climate change to us youth, when it is far too late. Our careers, health, future and lives are in your hands. In the CARB Scoping Plan, I am asking the board to fully phase out fossil fuels by 2030 and prioritize the communities health. Again, this is urgent because our climate and communities can’t wait any longer. It’s inexcusable that CARB is catering to the fossil fuel industry while sacrificing us people and our communities! Thank you for listening, I appreciate your hard work, and I ask for you to consider my concerns.
