Comment 608 for 2022 Climate Change Scoping Plan (scopingplan2022) - Non-Reg.

SubjectCARB Scoping Plan Recommendations

Hello, my name is Anthony Singh-Reynoso. I am a resident of Oxnard, CA, and a young adult leader with the nonprofit CAUSE. I’m here to speak on the CARB Scoping Plan. I traveled here from my community (attended the CARB meeting as a group of 15 from CAUSE from Oxnard which is 400 miles away but were all not called on to comment in time) to demand that CARB commit to a more ambitious plan to stop the environmental injustices in our state.


CARB wants to keep using fossil fuels and recommends Alternative 3. Alternative 3 includes an additional 10GW buildout that will disproportionately impact EJ communities like Oxnard, burdening us with more environmental injustices. Our lungs are tired of being surrounded by oil wells, power plants, ports, and superfund sites still left unclean. We are being placed in sacrifice zones so fossil fuel profits can grow at the cost of our community’s health and well-being. That is especially troublesome as we continue to navigate the COVID-19 pandemic. Environmental injustices will continue to be perpetuated under Alternative 3 of the CARB Scoping Plan, continuing to create underlying health conditions that leave us more vulnerable to this pandemic. 


In the CARB Scoping Plan, I am demanding the board make a plan for transitioning to clean, renewable, zero-emission energy by 2035 with the retirement of all gas plants currently in operation and no new gas plants built. That means stopping all of the new gas plants proposed in the alternatives. I am also demanding that the board make a plan for more clean cars, trucks, and mass transit for working-class Californians. We must transition to 100% zero-emission vehicles by 2035 and lower the number of vehicle miles traveled by 30% by 2035.
