Comment 43 for 2022 Climate Change Scoping Plan (scopingplan2022) - Non-Reg.

SubjectThank you ARB.

I am sending a very ambitious comment to the Air Resources Board for their scoping plan review.


Quote from the following:

Pieter Tans, a senior scientist with NOAA’s Global Monitoring Laboratory, noted that CO2 is by far the most abundant human-caused greenhouse gas, and persists in the atmosphere and oceans for thousands of years after it is emitted. 

“We are adding roughly 40 billion metric tons of CO2 pollution to the atmosphere per year,” said Tans. “That is a mountain of carbon that we dig up out of the Earth, burn, and release into the atmosphere as CO2 - year after year. If we want to avoid catastrophic climate change, the highest priority must be to reduce CO2  pollution to zero at the earliest possible date.” 

I urge a 10 year plan with 90% reduction of greenhouse gases.
