Reduce and cap carbon dioxide emissions in Virginia
 

The October, 2018 IPCC report stated that we have less than 12 years to take unprecedented, urgent steps to stop greenhouse gas emissions and remove carbon dioxide from the atmosphere.  In November, the 4th National Climate Assessment was even more sobering.  Climate change is: here; harming US communities; expensive; will impede economic development this century.  However, it is not too late to avert the worst consequences of climate change is we act NOW. 

I support Virginia reducing and capping carbon emissions with the action “Reduce and Cap Carbon Dioxide from Fossil Fuel Fired Electric Power Generating Facilities (Rev. C17)” as written.
