Comment 8 for 2022 Climate Change Scoping Plan (scopingplan2022) - Non-Reg.

SubjectPlease aim for carbon neutral by 2035, not 2045

While I appreciate the obvious hard work that went into creating the 2022 Climate Change Scoping Plan, it should be much more ambitious.  From a technical standpoint, it should be quite do-able for California to be carbon neutral by 2030.  Let's cut some slack and say we should aim to be carbon neutral by 2035.  

Dr. Daniel Kammen at UC Berkeley can explain the technical details to any level required, I strongly urge the Board to hear what Dr. Kammen has to say on this matter.  He is literally the foremost expert on California's carbon emissions, and can be reached via his university home page at  

Again, I appreciate the good work of the Board, but we can do far better than carbon neutral by 2045 - and it's not even that hard.  Let's do what California does best, and lead the world!
