Saving the Organ Mountains

Home to mountain lions, pronghorn antelope and flowering cacti, as well as more than 10,000 years of human history and culture, the Organ Mountains-Desert Peaks is an incredible place. That’s why when reckless development and mining threatened this unique landscape, we worked hard to urge President Obama to protect it as a national monument. 

Program

Save Otero Mesa

Mining and drilling is threatening Otero Mesa—an important source of drinking water and critical habitat for 1,000 native species, including our herd of pronghorn antelope. We’re urging President Obama to save Otero Mesa from these threats forever by formally designating it as a national monument.

Protect New Mexico's Rivers

More than 85% of New Mexico’s streams are vulnerable to dumping and development. Now, polluters’ allies in Congress are trying to block the EPA from restoring vital safeguards. To protect New Mexico’s waterways, we need to show massive public support for clean water. 

Program

Go Solar, New Mexico

If New Mexico has the second highest solar potential in the country, why are we getting so much of our energy from oil and coal, which pollute our air, threaten the health of our kids, and fuel global warming? We have a plan to change that and see 100,000 solar roofs by 2020.

Global Warming Solutions

On June 2, 2014, the Environmental Protection Agency proposed a Clean Power Plan that sets targets for states to reduce carbon from their power plants by investing in renewable energy and energy efficiency, cleaning up existing power plants, and switching to cleaner fuels. We’ve launched a campaign to reach more than 1 million Americans about the local impacts of global warming and the impact President Obama’s Clean Power Plan will have on our children’s future.

Program

Get New Mexico Off Oil

The environmental costs of our oil dependence are out of control — from the accidents and spills, to smog, to climate change. It's time to set this country on a path to getting off oil for good. We can get there by convincing our leaders to make new investments in fuel-efficient cars, new technology, and a first-class system of public transportation.

Don't Frack Chaco Canyon

As fracking booms across our state, federal officials are making decisions right now about this dirty drilling near Chaco Culture National Historical Park, home with ancient pueblos that are more than a thousand years old. We have a chance to protect this special place—and keep it from turning into an industrial wasteland. But we have to act now.

Clean Air, Healthy Families

New EPA clean air standards will cut mercury pollution by 90% and save 46,000 lives each year. The coal industry and their friends in Congress are trying to roll back these standards, but we’re urging Congress to let EPA do its job and move forward with its commonsense plan to protect public health.
