  • Saturday, August 10, 10 am – noon: Climate Defenders New Mexico/ Santa Fe Citizens’ Climate Lobby Monthly Meeting. Come get involved with Citizen’s Climate Lobby, working for climate change solutions that bridge the partisan divide. More info here. Our challenge for this meeting: How do we get the 2020 state legislature to adopt legislation pricing carbon in transportation fuels? Answering that question requires us to decide, among other things: How can we best collaborate with Climate-Xchange? How can we best support the students working toward this goal? How can we form a coalition with other New Mexico groups committed to reducing GHG emissions while protecting climate justice. What effort is needed from each of us?
    This goal is within our reach—if all of us help. Please come and decide what you can offer to build on the momentum from the 2019 NM legislative session to help the U.S. keep its commitments in the Paris Accords—one state at a time.
