Comment 365 for Draft 2022 Climate Change Scoping Plan (scopingplan2022) - Non-Reg.
|Subject||CA CAP not sufficiently aggressive or equity-focused|
Dear Carb Board:
We are running out of time to address the climate
crisis. We are
already experiencing extreme weather, fires, droughts, deadly heat
waves, and even more devastating effects. The scoping plan must
include bold solutions that reflect the urgency of the crisis. The
current plan fails to do that. What we need to see in the scoping
- No new investments in fossil fuel
infrastructure. Extracting, refining and burning oil and gas
cause climate change and pollute environmental justice
- Greater investments in renewable energy.
More rooftop solar, wind, geothermal, etc. (No NEM 3.0
that kills rooftop solar)
- Carbon neutrality by 2035. 2045 is
too little too late.
- Transition our transportation system from car-based to
transit-based and increasing travel by biking and walking.
- Accelerate the phaseout of gas appliances and fully decommission
the gas distribution system by 2045. Both Commercial and
Residential new construction should be all-electric in
- Reject unproven technologies like
carbon capture and storage (CCS) and “green
hydrogen”. These approaches promoted by the fossil fuel industry
(to generate profit) are NOT viable climate
and economic equity must be at the forefront of all climate
injustice is not just a side note of the climate crisis –
it’s central to the causes of the crisis threatening us all.
California's climate plan should be
a bold plan that befits the nation's leader on climate. This plan
is far from what we need. The scoping plan must be made aggressive
on reducing fossil fuels and GHG emissions, and equity focused.
