We continue our work to highlight the impacts of methane waste and pollution on New Mexicans in a new video series.    New Mexico’s goal of nationally-leading methane and air pollution rules is critical to our collective efforts to protect public health, reduce waste, and act on climate change. Your voice is needed to ensure draft rules achieve that goal. 

 

Listen and share the stories below and urge Gov. Michelle Lujan Grisham to close the loopholes in draft rules by signing the petition today.

 

Miguel Escoto, a 22-year-old organizer with Earthworks and Sunrise Movement in the Permian Basin, sees strong methane regulation and other oil and gas pollution as an important step for New Mexico. He also urges us to follow climate science that shows a need to transition to renewable energy to avoid the worst impacts of climate change.

and Dee George

Penny Aucoin and husband Dee George think about leaving the land Dee planted trees on when he was nine due to their experience with oil and gas pollution from nearby operations. They want the oil and gas industry to operate in ways that protect people like them, including reducing methane emissions.

Jim Goodbar has lived in Carlsbad since 1977 and worked at the Bureau of Land Management for many years. Jim compares the oil and gas pollution around Carlsbad to the smog in Los Angeles and talks about ways the industry can step up to reduce methane waste and pollution.
