CAVU recently completed a media campaign called Unearthed Series: Exploring oil and gas issues in New Mexico. The series interviewed more than 90 people from Governors to oil and gas workers in the field to understand the benefits and the costs of current oil and gas laws to New Mexico communities. Reaching more than one million viewers and hosting 6 forums and 4 podcasts Unearthed made the conversation on methane a major talking point in the gubernatorial race. On the heels of Unearthed’s success, CAVU initiated a public petition supporting methane regulations for the State of New Mexico, part of a cooperative effort with dozens of other organizations that culminated in Governor Michelle Lujan Grisham’s executive order to create a methane waste rule and reduce the state’s greenhouse gas emissions by 45% by 2030.
CAVU believes that lasting solutions to complex problems are
developed in successful, collaborative partnerships. when entities on opposing sides of an
issue understand the driving principles and values that shape their opposition’s
perspectives. CAVU’s is committed to working with its partners and the state of New Mexico
and help support and develop practical statewide rules to methane capture from oil and gas
development. More about how you can be involved can be found at our website dedicated
