Comment 354 for 2022 Climate Change Scoping Plan (scopingplan2022) - Non-Reg.
|Subject||Making the Same Mistakes on Climate Mitigation Modeling|
I'm a Physics Professor at UC Riverside, and involved with the
UC's Carbon Neutrality Initiative. It's remarkable how this
CARB scoping plan makes a lot of the same mistakes as UC's Carbon
Neutrality Initiative from 9 years ago. Specifically, it
delays action until near the end of the modeled timeframe, and
relies too much on untested solutions (in this case carbon
removal). After watching implementation of many
decarbonization solutions, I'm confident is that the most important
action is the near-term action that addresses the first 10-25% of
emissions from any sector. This establishes markets, scales
up solutions, moves the private sector, so that addressing the
larger chunk of the sector is more straightforward. Please address
the scoping plan to focus more on near-term solutions (even if they
don't address the entire sector), and please avoid resorting to
untested solutions like carbon removal.
