Comment 606 for 2022 Climate Change Scoping Plan (scopingplan2022) - Non-Reg.

SubjectCARB Scoping Plan Recommendations

Hello, my name is Yesenia Gonzalez , I am a resident of Oxnard, and I am young adult leader with the non-profit CAUSE and I’m speaking on the CARB SCOPING PLAN. I woke up at 2 am today to catch a flight from oxnard to Sacramento to speak on the issues in my community in Oxnard. Every part of the state’s fossil fuel chain disproportionately affects the health and well-being of working class people of color in California, and 10GW (gigawatt) of fossil fuels that alternative 3 will build out will be impacting the EJ communities such as Oxnard. Which has been a dumping ground for polluting projects and is constantly being overlooked. The people of Oxnard are living in areas with high levels of pollution which are causing numerous health problems. We are in the 90th percentile for asthma rates which our community is suffering from.  I am asking the Board to make a plan for more zero-emission vehicles and no more fossil fuels and transition to 100% zero-emission vehicles by 2035 and lower the amount of vehicle miles traveled by 30% by 2035. The decisions that the California Air Resources Board makes now will determine whether my family and I have a safe and healthy future in our EJ community. Thank you
