Stay in Regional greenhouse gas initiative

the State chose the RGGI AS A proven, cost-effective approach to address climate change, the existential issue of our time. RGGI, a 12-State, market-based compact, auctions electric power sector carbon dioxide (CO2) allowances to reduce CO2 emissions. This compact comprises all of the New England and Mid-Atlantic States.  WHY WOULD VIRGINIA PULL OUT OF A GAME CHANGING STRATEGY AGAINST THE EXISTENTIAL THREAT OF CLIMATE CHANGE DEVASTATION ??? Do you not have children who will bear the consequences of climate change.  Please halt any reversal of this landmark legislation.
