Support Virginia DEQ greenhouse gas reduction plans
 

As a Virginia resident and health scientist I strongly support plans to reduce our states greenhouse gas emissions. The scientific community and reputable organizations such as the World Health Organization, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, and the U.S. Department of Defense have concluded that man made climate change is a serious threat to our safety. As a coastal state, Virginia stands to suffer tremendously from the catastrophic effects caused by climate change.  I strongly support plans to reduce greenhouse gas emissions in our state and mitigate the effects on climate change as much as possible. Thank you for the opportunity to comment. Sincerely,

Xabier
