Think of the future

Withdrawing from the RGGI may be a monetary decision, and is certainly a decision that panders to a Republican base, but it is irresponsible and short-sighted.  The earth is going in the wrong direction and it is up to us to begin the turnaround.  It shouldn't fall on the shoulders of our children.  So "man up" Governor, take some responsibility and don't punish your (or my) children for the mistakes of the past.  Let's try to fix this.
