The Time is NOW for clean energy in Virginia

I will be working the first day of a new job on March 19th, or I would be there in person at the Richmond, VA Hearing, to register my support for the Clean Energy Virginia Initiative (or Executive Directive 11).  As a small business owner, and homeowner, who has nieces and nephews that will inherit our natural heritage - I am committed to a clean energy future for my business, my family, our Commonwealth, and the planet.  We can live in better harmony with the natural world, and in so doing, help to preserve and ensure a thriving future for ourselves, alongside all other life.

Humans have evolved close to the natural world, and indeed we need it to be healthy and vibrant, for our own well-being and to build a future that is sustainable as well as prosperous.

We cannot afford to continue to use energy sources that have documented ill affects to our health and that of our children.  Please support this important and forward-thinking Initiative.

Thank you.
