I support a strong statewide carbon standard and oppose any biomass co-firing exemption
As a Virginia resident, I’m writing in support of a strong statewide carbon standard.
I support your proposal to put a 28-million-ton limit on Virginia’s carbon pollution next year and your plan to reduce the amount of harmful pollution emitted by three percent annually after that.
A strong carbon standard would help grow our clean energy economy, make our air cleaner, save Virginians money on electric bills, and hold big polluters accountable through a cap-and-invest model.
I oppose, however, any loopholes that let polluters burn trees for electricity.
Virginians are ready for strong action, and we — along with future generations — are counting on you to do the right thing for both the climate and our forests.
