Comment 324 for Draft 2022 Climate Change Scoping Plan (scopingplan2022) - Non-Reg.
|First Name||Matthew |
|Last Name||Kubala |
|Subject||California Climate Change Scoping Plan|
California is currently one of the highest consumers of crude
oil from the Amazon. Oil drilling is unsustainable and extremely
harmful to the environment. The Amazon is one of the most important
and vulnerable ecosystems on Earth, and its protection and
preservation are essential to the health of our planet.
Furthermore, in Ecuador there are ongoing protests concerning the
protection of both the Amazon and the rights of the indigenous
peoples of the region. California is currently part of the problem
due to its role in raising demand for Amazon crude oil. Therefore,
it is high time that California end its contribution to the
destruction of the Amazon. Please work to lessen, and then
eliminate altogether, our state's need for oil from the Amazon.
Until that happens, please ensure that all refineries source their
oil from places that are not violating human rights or planning to
increase oil drilling. Please commit to switching over to a
sustainable California economy that does not rely on fossil fuels
from halfway around the world in order to be able eliminate fossil
fuels completely. It should be noted that as such a process is
carried out, economic support will need to be given to the laborers
who currently work in the fossil fuel industry. None of this will
be easy, but it is necessary for the health of our planet, our
people, and our economy. Thank you.
