Regional Greenhouse Gas Initiative

Climate Change is REAL!  The RGGI is a step in the right direction to reduce greenhouse gas,  To withdraw from this effort is to doom the planet.   Climate deniers have failed to evaluate the data that points to a critical turning point.  Recent history has shown that every issue to address human abuse of the environment reached a turning point with Silent Spring. Since then the evidence has mounted that we must take care of the environment or  suffer serious harm to the environment, our health and safety.  The RGGI is the first step of many we must take, there is NO silver bullet.  We must take this action and many more.
