Carbon emissions comment period

I request that DEQ use it's authority to adopt and implement a final standard that caps or reduces carbon pollution as rapidly as possible, beginning as soon as possible. The 2020 base year should be less that 33 million tons. Please include 1.Carbon pollution from biomass, 2. Set the expection of continued reduction in Virginia after 2030, and 3. Monitor implementation to ensure fairness to communities. Fouling our planet and making it uninhabitable so that Dominion and other businesses can reward their shareholders is irresponsible government.
