Virginia LCV staff and our Conservation Action Team members have been taking advantage of the August recess to personally thank our U.S. Senators for their support of the EPA’s Clean Power Plan, which was rolled out earlier this month.
Aug. 19, Chesapeake Councilwoman Ward, Virginia LCV Advocacy Coordinator Becca Summers and Conservation Action Team members met with Sen. Warner’s staff in Norfolk to discuss the Clean Power Plan. Aug. 20, they were joined by Del. Betsy Carr in Richmond to meet with Sen. Kaine’s staff. Aug. 27th, a group of 16 environmentalists, including faith leaders, educators, lawyers, and physicians met with Sen. Kaine’s D.C. staff to thank the Senator for his support as well as discuss the future of the Clean Power Plan.
The Clean Power Plan marks the first time in our nation’s history that carbon dioxide emissions from power plants will be regulated, even though we’ve known for years that this greenhouse gas was to blame for much of the global warming that’s taken place over the past century.
To get involved in our Conservation Action Team program, reach out to our Advocacy Coordinator, Becca Summers at bsummers@valcv.org.
