Don't go backward on RGGI; stay in and invest in our future

Spaceship Earth is on a dangerous trajectory, and we must increase our investments in its survival. To do that, RGGI will help us stop the use of fossil fuels, increase renewable energy, make our cities resilient, invest in nature-based carbon capture, and much more. Moreover, this act by the Air Pollution Control Board is not legal and is politically motivated. The Board does not have the authority to reverse a legislative mandate. Virginians overwhelmingly want to stay in RGGI and pursue climate action. My family and I are among those.
