Public comment is open on the Supplement to the Global Warming Solutions Act (AB 32) Scoping Plan Functional Equivalent Document.  The California Air Resources Board (CARB) in compliance with a state judge has examined alternatives to a Cap and Trade system in its environmental review and is now accepting comments.
Below is a sample email to post here at the California Air Resources Board’s website that could strengthen the law for the environment and also make it fairer for all Californians.

Sample Email:

Dear CARB,
Specific carbon market designs can address objections raised by groups critical of the impacts of AB 32’s Cap & Trade progra .  Instead of giveaways to polluting industries, CARB could auction 100% of permits. Rather than unlimited offsets, CARB can strictly limit them.  Inequities in the use of allowance value can be addressed with a Cap & Dividend approach that returns revenues back to all Californians equally.  Please incorporate these elements into the environmental analysis.

Sincerely,
