Support the proposal
I support the proposed regulation to cap CO2 emissions in Virginia. The 9-state trade program is beneficial for the economy, for maintaining properly regulated rules on emission capping among states, and for supporting the requirements laid out in the Paris Climate Accords. Because the rule largely reduces emissions from power plants, etc. and does not deal with electricity or the burning of biomass, it is not a great public cost, but rather a gain in saving energy. This would be a positive step towards complying with the Paris Cimate Accords, which recognize how urgent the issue of the addition of carbon to the atmosphere is.
