BUILDING NEW MEXICO'S CLEAN FUTURE
PROTECT NEW MEXICO'S ECONOMY & ENVIRONMENT
We are at a turning point in New Mexico. New Mexico's climate is warming and changing at a pace beyond many other states, bringing massive wildfires, post-fire flooding, aridification, drying reservoirs and rivers, and disruption of centuries of traditional land-use management. These changes impact not only our communities, but also our wildlife and the larger ecosystem we are all a part of.
What's the next step? To combat the climate crisis we're facing, the State Legislature must support New Mexico’s Clean Future by passing a bold framework bill in 2023 for transitioning to an emissions-free economy by 2050.
This transition to a zero-emissions economy in the next 30 years will require direct coordination with the communities most impacted by climate pollution, like low-income, rural, and/or communities of color, to help ensure a just economic transition is also fully realized.
That's why we need you. We need your help to urge your State Legislators to sign the Clean Future Pledge and commit to supporting a bold framework bill in the 2023 for building a zero-emission economy by 2050.
CLEAN FUTURE ACHIEVEMENTS
More pro-conservation executive action, legislation, and agency rule-making has occurred in the first 3+ years of the Lujan Grisham administration than at any time previously.
We're proud of these accomplishments but we are still in the early stage on the road to an equitable zero-emission economy.
NEW MEXICO IS AT A TURNING POINT
STANDING TOGETHER, WE CAN TAKE BOLD, EFFECTIVE ACTION TO CREATE A NEW MEXICO WITH:
We will invest in careers focused on New Mexico’s natural strengths, like wind and solar energy, cleaning up oil, natural gas, and mining sites to protect the environment and community health. These are jobs that work for families in the long-run and can provide the stable income needed for us to thrive.
It's time to promote career opportunities that support a workforce that is just as diverse and culturally-rich as our state.
This means providing training resources that reach and serve all communities, both rural and urban, that honor all the interconnected roles necessary for a resilient state. There will be new job opportunities in technology and innovation, education, construction, agriculture, and more.
We can create an economy that celebrates the ways that we connect in our communities without harming our health.
This means modernized energy generation and transportation that doesn’t pollute our air or cause respiratory illnesses like asthma.
This also means making sure that our state’s businesses and corporations take responsibility for eliminating their air pollution, creating safer and healthier environments for our families, workers, and communities statewide.
Building a rural economy focused on honoring New Mexico’s natural heritage, like restoring our lands and watersheds to protect them for our future generations in an era of changing climate, and careers stewarding our growing outdoor recreation industry that is bringing new energy to rural communities like Silver City and Farmington.
Making sure that we are using our natural resources wisely, like our drinking and groundwater, and planning for the future.
Acting to protect our state’s vulnerable wildlife - critical to the vitality of our ecosystems and communities - before it’s too late.
