The New Mexico Legislature is broken

-A A +A

By Vernon Kerr

We, the sap citizens, have been scammed. Will Harrison, a columnist in the past (1970s), always referred to us as sap citizens and showed where we had been taken by the state government.

I recall the many times he found out our shortcomings, but the one we are now experiencing is the slickest of them all. In the 2019 legislature, Senate Bill 489, the Energy Transition Act, was touted as a great victory for the environmentalists as a way to control “climate change”. A misnomer if there ever was one as it is applied as an environmental problem. Climate has been changing for millions and billions of years and has never been controlled by man. 

Why do the Democrat progressives think they have the supernatural power of God and that “their” legislation can alter the nature of the climate. They worry that carbon dioxide injected into the atmosphere will accumulate and act as a blanket on the earth that will boost temperatures and fry us.
