This used to be true a decade ago, but not any more! Give this Global Weirding episode a watch to find out why:
Donald Trump needs to stop trying to save an industry that is poisoning the environment. -- Arnold Schwarzenegger.
Virginia Governor Terry McAuliffe responds to Trump pulling out of the Paris climate deal: "We need to send a message to the world—forget what Donald Trump says. That we’re serious about climate change."
Earlier this year, Governor McAuliffe announced the Clean Energy Virginia initiative, which directs the Virginia Department of Environmental Quality (DEQ) to enact a carbon reduction standard for Virginia.
Next week marks an important step in this process, as members of the State Air Pollution Control Board will vote on DEQ's draft regulations. #NewVAEconomy

Throughout his campaign, President Trump pledged to “make America great again.” But the pro-polluter agenda we’ve seen so far doesn’t sound great at all. Instead of regressing to our dirty energy habits, let’s keep America on its march toward a clean and healthy future.
