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.

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

Polluting industries have put our nation's waters in jeopardy by carving loopholes in the Clean Water Act, leaving 95,000 miles of New Mexico's streams open to pollution. Join our call to restore the law's protection to all of our waters.

Go Solar, New Mexico

More and more Americans are going solar, meeting more of our energy needs in a way that’s clean and local. Unfortunately, dirty energy companies are putting up new roadblocks at every turn. Our research shows that the cities and states with the most solar power aren't the ones with the most sunshine—they're the ones with the best pro-solar policies. That’s why we’re urging New Mexico's leaders to go big on solar and leave dirty energy behind.

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.

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 to ancient pueblos that are more than 1,000 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.
