Albuquerque, NM – On a date that only comes once a century, events around New Mexico and the nation will draw attention to what many consider the problem of the century. 10-10-10 events are set for this Sunday, October 10th to focus on fighting climate change.
Albuquerque, NM – The Sierra Club, New Energy Economy and more than a dozen other groups in New Mexico are asking for a science-based cap on greenhouse gases produced in the state.
Proponents see it as a critical move toward environmental preservation of the Southwest and an economic engine to create new green jobs.
Opponents of the cap worry about the cost of compliance and the economic impacts it could have on industry. Critics of the cap also charge it could lead to higher electricity and energy costs for consumers.
