SubjectComments on the 2022 CARB Scoping Plan

Dear CARB Board,


Thank you for your leadership in considering the EJAC comments and suggestions in the process to complete the 2022 Scoping Plan. I commend the plan’s goals to scale up investment in mass transit, set interim goals to wind down gas-fired electricity generation, and call for an interagency process to implement the phasedown of oil refining and extraction.


However, more work still needs to be done. The plan offers huge handouts to Big Oil, using carbon capture to keep refineries online indefinitely and utilizing dirty gas power plants, polluting bioenergy, and dirty hydrogen facilities. Instead, more effort, research and resources need to be provided to increase the use of Natural and Working Lands solutions. 


I strongly support EJAC’s intention to become a permanent part of the CARB planning and implementation process. Together, EJAC and CARB can prioritize the health and well-being of all Californians, and find a path for a just transition to clean energy.
