Gillespie Silent on Climate Change on Virginia’s Coast While Trump Quits Paris Accord

On the same day that Donald Trump withdrew from the Paris Climate Accord, Ed Gillespie visited Virginia Beach and Hampton Roads, two communities that are dangerously facing the threat of climate change.

We are wondering if Gillespie had anything to say to the coastal residents about how he plans to stand up to Trump and protect some of Virginia’s most vulnerable coastal communities.

With a sea level rise scenario of 0.75m, estimated damages would cost up to $100 million annually — just for the residential properties in Hampton Roads alone.

So far, Virginians haven’t heard a word on how he plans to fight back against climate change.
