DEADLINE TODAY: Submit your public comment to protect the Pecos from exploratory mining. While the outdated mining law requires the Forest Service approve the drilling, they have the ability to insist on stringent environmental protections at each step of this process. Add your voice to push for the strongest protections for air, land, water and community health at https://stoptererromine.org/#StopTererroMine#nmpol#ProtectOurPecos#ProtectOurWater
For more than a DECADE, the state of NM couldn't hold bad actors in the oil and gas industry accountable for pollution. That changed finally today thanks to hard work by so many leadership by Governor Michelle Lujan Grisham. Thank you! bit.ly/30ukJ3G #nmpol
👏👏👏 to the New Mexico Environment Department for embracing innovative technology and partnering with communities to detect and stop pollution from oil and gas infrastructure. Check out their press release and methane map for more info:
NEW TODAY: EMNRD – the agency in charge of regulating New Mexico’s oil and gas industry, promoting renewable energy projects and managing our state forests and 35 state parks – saw its budget cut by 20+% under the Martinez administration. Currently, 1/2 of all inspectors in the Oil & Gas Conservation Division are vacant – despite historic levels of energy production in our state. This cannot continue, but fortunately Governor Michelle Lujan Grisham has requested funding increases to right this wrong. State legislators must respond by putting these agencies back on track to ensure our state’s air, land and water is protected the way New Mexicans expect and deserve.

h/t to New Mexico Wilderness Alliance for the fantastic research!
"The amount of methane released into the atmosphere or burned in the Permian Basin has more than doubled since 2017, suggests a new report from an advisory panel assembled by Governor Michelle Lujan Grisham.” NM must #CutMethane to protect public health &environment #nmpolhttp://bit.ly/2tfDf3R
DOESN'T ADD UP: @APIenergy wants you to think that its members are leading the charge to #cutmethane & address the #climatecrisis, but only ~ 1% of oil & gas producers have set methane targets or participate in API’s voluntary programs to limit pollution!
