Will We Turn Our Entire World Into Lahaina for Political Gain?

Having lived in SWVA under the shadow of the Mountain Valley Pipeline a quarter-mile from my home, I have had to become aware of the adverse affects  of greenhouse gas emissions. The climate crisis is upon us. Why is no one screaming from the rafters to stop Big Energy from not only ruining our environment and our economy, but literally killing us!  Anything we can do to reduce green house emissions should be put into effect. The cost of staying in RGGI is miniscule in comparison to the ruination of our economy because of global overheating causing wildfires, flooding, extreme weather, and the destruction of habitats. We must be proactive in saving our world instead of short-sighted and reactive for political gain.

Please reject the regulation attempting to end Virginia's participation in RGGI.
