Comment 550 for 2022 Climate Change Scoping Plan (scopingplan2022) - Non-Reg.
|Affiliation||President, Phys for Soc Resp/Sacramento|
|Subject||Draft Climate Change Scoping Plan 2022|
Dear California Air Resources Board
I represent the 700 members of the
Sacramento chapter of Physicians for Social Responsibility.
Climate change is a public health crisis
that requires an urgent response. We feel that the draft scoping
plan is inadequate and urge you to follow the recommendations
of the Environmental Justice Advisory Committee.
We support phasing
out of of oil and gas extraction by 2035, oil refining by 2045, as well as
a rapid transition to a zero-emission transportation system by 2035.
We need to
eliminate or minimize reliance on cap-and-trade, or Carbon Capture
technologies which would subsidize and perpetuate the
fossil fuel industry and increase GHG emissions.
robust public health equity evaluation process should be built into
the design prior to adoption of the scoping
future of our world and the lives of our children and grandchildren
depends on your decision. Thank you for considering this
Harry Wang, MD
President, Physicians for Social
