In addition to opposing the Atlantic Coast Pipeline and Mountain Valley Pipeline fracked gas monstrosities, Tom Perriello also vows not to take money from regulated monopolies (e.g., Dominion Power) while scaling up CLEAN energy in Virginia. I strongly urge all Virginia candidates, Democratic and Republican, to take the same pledges (as well as to oppose offshore oil drilling and mountaintop removal coal mining) — before it’s too late for our planet, and so that Virginia doesn’t miss out on the enormous (multi-trillion-dollar) opportunities presented by the booming cleantech sector worldwide.
P.S. If you need any MORE reason to oppose these pipelines, note that fossil fuel tool Trump and his team are huge fans. ‘Nuff said. Also see here for a more detailed explanation by Perriello regarding this announcement, including the fact that clean energy creates a LOT more jobs than fossil fuels…plus of course it’s clean.
