Dear EPA Administrator Regan,
The Biden administration made a promise for bold investments in climate, jobs and justice as well as to electrify the transportation sector for all. As a person of faith and conscience, I am writing to ask you to enact the boldest and strongest possible clean car standards.
The recently released draft rule is not strong enough. I am asking you to revise the standards beyond levels set during the Obama-Biden administration and put the nation on a trajectory to 100% electric cars and light trucks no later than 2035. This requires at least 60% to be electric by 2030. The EPA must also maximize emissions reductions and not allow loopholes to undermine this progress.
The window for meaningful action to address climate change is closing and we ask the EPA to do its part to address climate pollution starting with the largest sources like transportation. Stronger and more protective car standards can also reduce health care costs and protect our health, particularly the health of the most vulnerable in our communities.
This is a moral opportunity to follow the science and rapidly make the emissions reductions we know are necessary. It is possible and it can be done in a way that is beneficial to our country and to the world.
Thank you for this opportunity to comment.
