Environment

Despite what others may say, the 20th district will not benefit financially in any significant way from the proposed pipeline. The aim must be to reduce reliance on fossil-based fuels, not encourage their further development which will be the result if this and other similar pipelines are supported. We need to be looking toward the future at renewable and clean forms of energy.

The 20th district is a magnet for tourists seeking quiet beauty, majestic mountains, a look at rural lifestyle, the opportunity to ski, hike, and camp, travel the hop and vine trail, and visit some of it's organic, visitor-friendly farms. We should be looking at capitalizing on this opportunity, rather than accepting money from energy giants who would destroy part of our natural heritage.

Michele has a vision in which Virginia is a leader in clean energy production, a trailblazer in agriculture-based and environment-based tourism, while protecting and maintaining the beauty, integrity, and history of it's natural heritage.
