Comment

My name is Tyyne Parakhen and I am a resident of San Diego. As a mother of a young toddler and a soon-to-be-born baby, I am painfully aware that our decisions today will irrevocably determine their future. We are in a climate emergency and must act now. This is why I urge the CARB to create a robust and aggressive climate plan that matches the seriousness of the climate crisis. I urge for the plan to call for carbon neutrality by 2035, with no new investments in fossil fuels, clear steps to transition away from fossil fuels (including natural gas and non-green hydrogen), and investments in renewable energy. The plan must not rely on unproven technologies like carbon capture and storage (CCS). CCS is NOT a viable solution for addressing our climate emergency and is often used by the fossil fuel industry as a way of justifying continuing their operations and maintaining the status quo. We cannot afford to continue postponing the transition away from fossil fuels. I trust the CARB will act with the urgency and seriousness required to meet the climate crisis, and help secure a livable future for our children.
