RGGI is in all of VA interest

There is simply no good reason to abandon RGGI program. Environmental change adversely impacting our state, seen in increasing flooding and heat, is a concern of paramount importance. This is a real existential crisis, not an issue to be played with through political theater. More initiatives towards clean energy is needed, please don’t remove a program which at least attempts to address climate concerns.
