ARB Not In Touch With

A collection of
TRANSDEF’s comments to the Air Resources Board (ARB)
was recently posted:

Testimony to ARB on Regional GHG
Emissions Reduction Targets

“These targets will result in increased emissions in
this sector, due to population growth. This is going
in the wrong direction, and would send the wrong
signal to the rest of the world about ARB’s view of
the need for urgent reductions in GHG

ARB’s 2013 Scoping Plan

“Staff recognizes the need for “Fundamental
transformation of transportation system needed to
meet goals” but seems to have little grasp of the
institutional barriers to that

ARB’s 2014 Update of Regional GHG
Emissions Reduction Targets
“Alarmingly, regional GHG emissions are
increasing, despite the legislative intent of SB
375 to generate additional reductions beyond those
achievable with statewide measures.”

ARB’s 2014 Update of Regional GHG
Emissions Reduction Targets
“Egregiously missing here–in a document about
targets, no less–is a quantitative assessment of
those reductions, and their level of contribution
to the State’s goals.”

ARB’s 2015 Scoping Plan

“The day-to-day realities of the climate-hostile
fields of transportation and infill development are
entirely disconnected from the State’s climate
ARB’s Greenhouse Gas Reduction Fund

“The draft Funding Guidelines and associated
Quantification Methodologies are an open invitation
to widespread application fraud.”
ARB’s Draft 2015 Investment Plan

“TRANSDEF finds the Transportation and Sustainable
Communities section of the Draft Concept Paper naive
and overconfident in its assumption that the programs
will result in the intended emissions reductions.”
