President Barack Obama’s leadership on capping carbon emissions is long overdue with the impending climate crisis. Special interest groups can no longer decide the fate of the environment we all share.
New Mexico is already experiencing the effects of climate change. According to the U.S. Drought Monitor, more than 60 percent of New Mexicans live in conditions of exceptional drought. This drought is aggravated by increasing global temperatures and extended periods of time without precipitation.
We need to reduce dependence on fossil fuels, but natural gas is not an alternative. The EPA reports that methane is 20 times more potent than carbon dioxide as a greenhouse gas. This country is rich in renewable resources that can be harnessed in place of dirty, finite sources.
I applaud President Obama’s action as climate change becomes a more pressing issue. The climate must be considered over profitability if we do not want to become climate refugees.
