SubjectCARB Scoping Plan Recommendations

Hello my name is Cristel Gonzalez , I am a resident of Oxnard and I am a youth leader with the non-profit organization named CAUSE. I’m here today to speak on the CARB Scoping Plan. As a resident of Oxnard, I traveled 400 miles this morning starting at 2am from my EJ community of Oxnard to speak at this meeting because CARB wants to keep using fossil fuels, and are recommending Alternative 3 which includes an additional 10GW (gigawatt) buildout, which harms the lungs and health of my community. Growing up in a community with a 90th percentile asthma rate has taken a huge tole on my family and our health. I have suffered from asthma since I was little. When my father immigrated here to Oxnard he started showing symptoms of asthma after a few years. Living in a city that is being harmed be fossil fuels and diesel exhaust my family nor the community. I am asking the Board to make a plan for more clean cars, trucks, and mass transit for working class Californians and a transition to 100% zero-emission vehicles and no more fossil fuels! Please consideration the health risks that pollution has. Thank you.
