sad facts are:
- New Mexico presently has zero
mandate for renewables in its energy portfolio, and receives roughly
90% of its energy from mostly aging and dirty fossil fuel plants, and about
10% from the Palo Verde nuclear plant in Arizona.
- New Mexico residents are on
average responsible for generating several tens
of tons of carbon dioxide per
person per year. CO2
is the most important human generated greenhouse gas, and global warming is going to
severely damage New Mexico.
