Comment

Hello,

 

I’m writing today to urge you to commit California to a policy/regulatory agenda that ensures that our state’s refineries are not sourcing crude from regions where there are Indigenous rights violations or from regions where new oil drilling in the Amazon is being planned.  As a concerned citizen I’m calling for a plan for California to reduce and/or eliminate its consumption of crude from the Amazon and to commit California to new fuel efficiency standards and expanded electrification of fleets.  I find it very concerning that California consumes nearly 50% of all oil exports from the Amazon globally (nearly 1 in 9 gallons pumped in-state on average).  Please take meaningful action to help California be an agent of change as it regards the environment and the fight against climate change.

 

Regards,

Justin D Weddle
