Climate change is real. It not only has the potential to, but will devastate the planet if we do not immediately begin to seriously address it, and correct the error of our ways. This is why I am encouraged by the ongoing emergence of Virginia as the national leader in the offshore wind industry and clean renewable energy in general. Recently, the Port of Virginia and Dominion Energy agreed to a deal to commit much of the port to be leased to be used for the assembly of the offshore wind turbines for Virginia Beach. Those turbines will provide millions of people, and hundreds of thousands of homes with clean and renewable energy.
It is well past time that the politicians in Washington get serious about addressing the growing climate crisis. The fact that here in Virginia, Richmond and Dominion Energy understand the urgency facing all of us is a revelation. As we continue to move towards clean renewable energy and grow our ability to produce nuclear, solar, and wind power,
I can only hope the rest of the country and world will take notice and follow suit for the sake of future generations.
