Tom Wolf Wants PA to Join Multi-State Cap and Trade Scheme
Pennsylvania Gov. Tom Wolf (D) is on the precipice of deciding whether Pennsylvania should join the Regional Green Gas Initiative (RGGI), a multistate “cap and trade” agreement that sets limits on CO2 emissions. Joining the RGGI could result in the closure of power plants, job losses, and a loss of energy independence for the United States. Yet the governor doesn’t appear to care. Nor does he appear to care that the study used to justify joining RGGI is deeply flawed or that he may lack the legal authority to make the decision to join.
