Oppose Leaving RGGI - Look to the Future!

I oppose Virginia leaving RGGI. As Pope Francis warns, we need to think about future generations and the poor, not just the short=term impacts. RGGI works very well in the States that have joined and has not adversely affected their economy. We need to be bold in battling climate change, not backward looking.
