Reduce Carbon Emissions

Human made carbon emmissions around the world are seen as a natural occurance and part of everyday life. Although this may be the case, something must be done to address these high levels Virginians put out. This regulation must be passed to hold companies accountable during their production. The National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences states that air pollution causes countless respitory problems including asthma, cardiovascular disease, premature birth, etc. These effects of air pollution might not effect as much now, but this continued overview of business freedom over well being could shove these health problems right in our face. The stance needs to be taken now with the passing of these types of regulation to insure healthy generations for years to come. Fees should be implemented to coerce these companies into compliance. These existing laws dont do virginian citizens justice. We bare the burden while corporations prosper with no liabilities. Companies must be regulated to insure coroparation and healthy lives for Americans.
