Letter: Sen. Kaine gives climate talk

earth-newOn Monday, 30 U.S. senators stood up for an “all-nighter” on climate change in Washington, D.C. We applaud Virginia’s Senator Tim Kaine for joining this effort. Sen. Kaine’s statement was a clear sign that he understands not only the urgency for Virginia in addressing the impacts of climate change, like rising seas in Hampton Roads, but also the opportunity for innovation.

The next step is acting, and that means cleaning up our power plants – America’s number one source of carbon pollution – and shifting to more clean energy like wind, solar, and energy efficiency. President Obama is moving forward with a new climate action plan to limit carbon from power plants, but he’ll need the support of Virginians to make that happen.

I urge more of Virginia’s elected leaders, including Senator Mark Warner and Governor Terry McAuliffe, to join Senator Kaine’s call for action. As he said Monday, we don’t need to choose “between a clean environment and a strong economy.”
