Comment 594 for 2022 Climate Change Scoping Plan (scopingplan2022) - Non-Reg.

SubjectCARB Scoping Plan Recommendations

Hello, my name is Naydeleen Ortiz, I am a resident of Oxnard, and youth leader with CAUSE, a non-profit organization. I’m speaking on the CARB Scoping Plan. I live in Oxnard, a city that is 400 miles away from here. I have traveled 400 miles from my EJ community to speak at this conference because under staff’s proposal, we would keep all existing generators online and add 10 GW by 2045. Because the majority of the state’s more than 160 polluting gas plants are in EJ communities, this would concentrate generation in EJ communities like Oxnard, which already has more than its fair share of gas-fired generators. We need CARB to create the road to zero emissions for the health of both our people and planet. I care about this issue because my family, friends, and community are continuously being affected by this issue. The health of our community is at stake. We need to transition to clean renewable sources. We can’t keep ignoring this issue. We need to switch alternatives before it’s too late. Thank you.
