Tim Kaine and Dominion Energy

Rumor has it that Virginia governor Tim Kaine is near the top of the list of possible running mates for Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama. On June 30th, 2008, construction began on a new coal-fired power plant in Wise County approved by Governor Kaine. The new plant has been opposed by energy planners, scientists, and environmentalists throughout the state. The Trafelger Street protest in Richmond was staged near the offices of Dominion Energy, which is constructing the plant. Governor Kaine's reckless approach to Virginia's energy future earned him a place in Washingtonian magazines's list of the Top 10 Enemies of the Environment. This is change we can believe in?
