The 2022 Scoping Plan Update will assess progress towards achieving the Senate Bill 32 2030 target and lay out a path to achieve carbon neutrality no later than 2045. CARB will initiate development of modeled scenarios to illustrate outcomes that lead to carbon neutrality. Short-lived climate pollutants (SLCPs) are powerful climate forcers that have relatively short atmospheric lifetimes. These pollutants include the greenhouse gas (GHG) methane, hydrofluorocarbons (HFC), and anthropogenic black carbon. Because SLCP impacts are especially strong over the short term, acting now to reduce their emissions can have an immediate beneficial impact on climate change and public health. This workshop provides an opportunity for stakeholders to provide input on key questions related to future policies and technologies to reduce SLCPs along a pathway to carbon neutrality. The workshop will discuss methane emissions from oil and gas sources, landfills and organic waste, and dairy and livestock operations; HFC refrigerants; and anthropogenic black carbon. This workshop will inform the 2022 Scoping Plan Update. Stakeholder input and feedback are encouraged.
