LWVNM urges candidates to be tough on climate change

-A A +A

On Thursday, the League of Women Voters of New Mexico (LWVNM), a nonpartisan political membership organization, presented more than 100 letters to the two gubernatorial candidates, Diane Denish and Susana Martinez, urging them to assume strong leadership to address the growing threat from climate change.  
LWVNM believes the global climate change is one of the most serious threats to the environment, health and economy of the nation and state. Recent scientific studies show that global warming is already causing environmental changes that will have significant global economic and social impacts. Thursday’s handwritten letters were the result of the league’s participation in the 10-10-10 global work party that occurred in 188 countries earlier this month. League members expressed a strong sentiment that action to reduce carbon emissions in New Mexico must be taken quickly. LWVNM is also a co-petitioner in the request to the Environmental Improvement Board to set a cap on carbon emissions in New Mexico. A decision on that petition is expected in December.
