ED 11

I am writing to strongly support the direction of ED 11 allowing VA to enter into carbon cap and trade agreements. I support VA fully particpating in RGGI.  As a physician, I am increasingly aware of the ill effects of climate change on my patients including increasing heat illness, new serious vector born disease and increasing rates of allergies and asthma.  As a mother, I am worried about the earth we hand on to our grandchildren.  As a citizen, I have been working to decrease my carbon footprint for 30 years.  It is time for my government to support me in improving our future.
