Dominion — what if?

Dominion and its associates are planning to invest more than $5 billion in the Atlantic Coast Pipeline. This project is going to cause great upheaval and stress to many citizens of Virginia, not to mention the terrain.

What if Dominion invested even half of this money into renewable-energy projects? Would there be more than seven or eight permanent jobs? Have solar-energy projects ever caused a fire, air or water pollution or devastation to the land and forests? Do wind turbines produce pollution? Does eminent domain need to be invoked for renewable energy projects?

It seems to me that the smart thing for Dominion to do is to look to technology for the future of energy. I bet Dominion can make just as much money by doing this. The Bible tells us to be good stewards of the earth. Someone, please send Dominion’s board of directors a Bible.
