“We are in a climate emergency, representing an existential threat to people across New Mexico, our country, and the entire planet. We need leaders in Congress who will make climate change a top priority, and recognize that the work we do to solve this crisis will help to bring greater equity and prosperity to all Americans.
I'm ready to put my years of experience to work on behalf of our communities, our families, and everyone across New Mexico to address this challenge and to realize the economic opportunities presented for our state by transitioning to a cleaner future.”
We take it as a moral imperative to do everything possible to solve the climate emergency, starting by rapidly transitioning away from a carbon-intensive economy toward a cleaner, safer, and healthier world. Solving this crisis requires transformative, bold, and ambitious action that meets the urgency of the moment. By keeping carbon in the ground and rapidly transitioning to a clean energy economy, we will create cleaner air, cleaner water, and healthier families. With less dependence on foreign fuels, we can enhance our national security, and transition to a more innovative and robust economy.
We cannot win this fight divided. Equity, Inclusion, and Justice are at the core of this campaign. The future we build and the opportunities we create must lift us all. Our Climate Mission is based on 3 key principles:
— one —
Creating a Just Energy Future
— two —
Building a Diverse and Equitable Economy
— three —
Growing Thriving and Resilient Lands and Communities
for current & future generations
Our response to the climate crisis will define the future of New Mexico, the country, and the planet. Solving this emergency requires the full mobilization of our ambition, resolve, and ingenuity. Our plan helps to define a pathway forward, providing the framework for a detailed vision of climate action, policy, and a better, more just and equitable world:
