ClimatePlan is a network of dozens of organizations; our vision is to create a healthier, more sustainable California, where people of all backgrounds and incomes have the opportunity to thrive.

We recognize that California has been shaped by a history of inequity, racism, oppression, and disinvestment. Those most impacted by the economic, political, and health consequences of climate change—low-income communities and communities of color—must have their voices heard and their needs met in statewide, regional and local decision-making. Equity does not involve a particular set of policies; rather, it is about paying attention to the knowledge, needs, authority, autonomy, and power of the most vulnerable communities—and acting in ways that support these communities.

    Collaborating on the 2022 California Air Resources Board Scoping Plan Update

    We recently sat down with Will Barrett, Senior Director of Clean Air Advocacy at the American Lung Association in California. We wanted to hear more about the 2022 Climate Change Scoping Plan, led by the California Air Resources Board (CARB). Below are some of Will’s thoughts on the Plan and how advocates can work on the plan collectively.  Can you give us a general overview of what’s happening with CARB’s 2022 Climate Change Scoping Plan?  In June 2021, CARB kicked off the 2022 Scoping Plan process that happens every 5 years. This planning process intends to track the progress of reaching our state’s climate standards and evaluate the suite of policies that can help us reach them. Who is involved in the Scoping Plan process and what is the timeline for these initiatives?  The Scoping Plan process is a multi-agency undertaking, touching all sectors of the economy. So, everything from transportation, energy, natural and working lands, agriculture, and industry falls within the purview of the plan. Many agencies and stakeholders participated in the discussion during the kickoff workshops this past June. CARB is hosting regular public meetings and ongoing workshops focused on different elements of the Scoping Plan. CARB will take input from a variety of sources and stakeholders, including the Environmental Justice Advisory Committee. This feedback will then inform the development of the draft Scoping Plan. CARB will release the final draft in Spring 2022.
