I have a 21 year old son and for his future as well as any grandchildren that may come my way and for the future of all our children I think it imperative that Virginia get its energy policy right. What is abundantly clear to me is that carbon needs to be minimized. We simply cannot take climate change as nonchalant as we have.
Taxation and tax incentives
We need to raise the price of carbon fuels to reflect their true cost to society and use these monies to provide tax breaks to electric and hybrid cars and solar and wind energy.

Virginia is far behind other states in promoting energy efficiency. As a result we are wasting energy, paying higher utility bills, and suffering air, water, land and climate pollution
