As a business leader I am particularly concerned about coal's impact on the communities and environment of our state. The pollution, toxic waste and carbon emissions that accompany coal extraction and burning will make Virginia a less competitive economy. Instead of investing in coal, we should be putting our money behind renewable energy projects and creating green jobs. The future of my business is dependent on a cleaner, greener and competitive economy in Virginia.
Our partners are environmental leaders, and actions like this prove it. We're proud of these two businesses for speaking up, and here's hoping Governor Kaine will listen to his constituents and his conscience.
