Don't pull Virginia out of RGGI

RGGI brings money and actions to our Common Wealth of Virginia. As we watch the news daily we are seeing the effects of the decline in our natural landscape. We are seeing the devastation almost daily of the impact that changes in climate are taking on people around the world. It is just a matter of time and Virginia will feel the direct effects of climate concerns. We are just as vulnerable as the communities we are seeing in the news. It is just a matter of time.

RGGI pairs our Common Wealth of Virginia  with the other Atlantic states for resources and support for any future climate damage. We can't act blindly when life and property are going to be at risk. PLEASE! see the value of staying with RGGI.
