Comment

I urge you to reject the proposed Alternative 3 scoping plan and instead:

Set a deadline of 2035 to stop allowing sales of gasoline vehicles and stop oil and gas drilling.

Ban all new gas power plants and phase out current fossil fuel power plants. It's already cheaper to build renewable energy than to build new gas power plants. With the money spent to build new gas power plants, we could build an equivalent amount of renwable energy and have enough left over to invest in storage!

Reject the false solutions of biogas and carbon capture and storage. These cause continuing and increasing environmental injustice and fail to meet the promise of reducing greenhouse gases.

Biogas perpetuates the reliance on methane -- a potent greenhouse gas that always leaks.

CCS increases pollution in local communities because it requires more energy use. Public money spent on CCS is often wasted because projects are abandoned as unfeasible and/or fail to remove as much CO2 as promised.

Instead, use the resources currently planned for these false solutions to rapidly expand clean public transportation and renewable energy, and to subsidize investments in energy efficiency and the conversion to all-electric buildings in a way that is equitable for middle- and lower-income households.
