Multifaceted approach

It would be a costly mistake to ban certain types of energy or set arbitrary dates to 'go electric'. There is no single solution to climate change and we need to consider every option including nuclear, solar, wind, renewable propane/diesel, etc. Many Virginians can't afford to upgrade their HVAC system, buy an EV, or install solar panels so forcing them to do so while also eliminating industries that rely on fossil fuels and employ these people doesn't make sense. The amount of leverage that Dominion has on our government is troubling, if they have their way they will force our citizens to fund the construction of their monopoly and be trapped paying whatever rate they come up with for the single remaining energy source.
