April 7, 2017Governor Jerry BrownState Capitol, Suite 1173Sacramento CA 95814Mary Nichols, ChairCalifornia Air Resources Board1001 I StreetSacramento CA 95814Esteemed Governor Brown and Honorable Chair Nichols:On behalf of Friends of the Earth – United States (FOE-US) this petition with more than 6,000 California resident signaturesare provided as comment on the Draft 2030 Target Scoping Plan Update (SPU) and Related Public Workshops(Workshops). Friends of the Earth – United States defends the environment and works for a healthy and just world. Thesubstance of this petition goes to the heart of our environmental and social justice concerns regarding the road map forfuture California climate policy as it is presented in the SPU. Clearly there are tremendous challenges to be met, and weappreciate the enormity of the task put before the Air Resources Board (ARB) staff for developing an economically just,ecologically literate, and scientifically defensible plan for the State of California to meet greenhouse gas emissionsreductions goals.We commend the State of California political leadership for taking a vocal and public stance challenging those politicalforces that would suggest that global climate change does not present tremendous risks and existential threats to humansociety and the planet’s life systems. We are steadfast in our belief that making a priority of addressing climate change isan imperative for the State of California, and we appreciate the public stance regarding the importance of addressing climatechange that has been taken by political leadership in the state government.Our organization and the undersigned humbly request that this petition be considered:The environmental justice community in California has made important recommendations to improve the 2030 ScopingPlan for meeting the state’s ambitious greenhouse gas emissions reduction objectives. These recommendations includeprioritizing reducing greenhouse gas emissions at their source and abandoning the scientifically dubious, economicallyinequitable and socially unjust pollution trading mechanisms of California Cap-and-Trade. California can and must be aglobal climate leader by aggressively and effectively addressing the state’s addiction to fossil fuels. Please incorporatethe recommendations of the Environmental Justice Advisory Committee into the Scoping Plan, and prioritize emissionsreductions at the source.Thank you for your attention to this petition.Respectfully,Gary Graham HughesSenior California Advocacy [email protected] 15th Street, NW · 11th Floor · Washington, DC 20005202.783.7400 · 202.783.0444 fax · 877.843.8687 toll free · www.foe.org2150 Allston Way, Suite 360 · Berkeley, CA 94704510-900-3150 · 510-900-3155 fax · 866.217.8499 toll free
