Comment 607 for 2022 Climate Change Scoping Plan (scopingplan2022) - Non-Reg.

SubjectCARB Scoping Plan Recommendations

Hello, my name is Moncerrat Hernandez, I am a resident of Oxnard,CA in Ventura County, and I am a young adult leader with the non-profit, CAUSE and I’m speaking on the CARB SCOPING PLAN. I am here (attended the the in-perso meeting and traveled from Oxard with 11 other fellow CAUSE youth but were not called on in time to comment) to voice my concern over the lack of ambition by CARB to stop the environmental injustices ongoing in our state disproportionately affecting communities of color.


I urge the board to create the   road to zero emissions and commit to it for the health of our people, ecosystem and planet Earth. Living in South Oxnard, I and community members wake up to go to school or to work and we always have to face the unfortunate view of a power plant at Ormond Beach. Neighborhoods of such proximity have a higher rate of asthma and Oxnard and the rest of the communities across the state deserve clean air. We must also think of future generations to come and what example and environment is being placed and created. In the CARB Scoping Plan, I am asking the Board to make a plan for 100% zero-emissions, clean, renewable electricity by 2035, and no new gas plants. Our climate and communities can’t wait any longer because what we are asking for is not a want but a need. Thank you for your time.
