This is my first time to speak out against withdrawing us from RGGI.

As a retired physician, I am shocked that the governor and air board would withdraw us from RGGI when it is obvious that climate change is affecting so many of us citizens and in so many regions of our country as well as the world.

Keeping RGGI is especially beneficial to the Tidewater area as our flooding issues worsen.

Don’t withdraw us from RGGI.
