Environmental Improvement Board - Clean Air Hearing - Santa Fe

Coal - San Juan

Wednesday, June 1
State Capitol Building, Santa Fe

Please come to these meeting to express your outrage for clean air! The NM Environment Department(NMED) is proposing to weaken the EPA clean air proposal for the coal-fired San Juan Generating Station.

The coal-fired San Juan Generating Station is currently generating 42 million pounds of nitrous oxide per year. This pollutant causes haze and health problems related to breathing(asthma and heart attacks), per the American Lung Association.

In 2010, the EPA proposed implementation of safeguards that would reduce these pollutants by 80%. Also, in 2010, NMED supported these same safeguards.

However, now NMED is proposing safeguards that would reduce pollution by only 20%. This is clearly a politically motivated change. The Governor's "pro-business" policy is to weaken environmental safeguards in many areas. This policy is not pro-business, it is anti-people!

Green Talk Radio 2

4-5 pm, Saturday, May 28
KTRC 1260AM

Governor Suzanna Martinez continues her attempts to unravel the good environmental work that’s been accomplished here in New Mexico. The latest thrust is her newly appointed Environmental Improvement Board and friends at PNM looking to derail the EPA’s rulings on the Coal Burning Power Plants in the Four Corners region of Navajo Country. My guests will be Mariel Nanasi, Director of the New Energy Economy, and Juan Reynosa, Sierra Club New Mexico. We’re looking to rally the citizenry to come out for the public hearings beginning in June.

Green Talk Radio - NM Building Codes

Green Talk Radio 2

4-5 pm, Saturday, May 14
KTRC 1260AM

Faren Dancer will host Kim Shanahan, Executive Director of the Santa Fe Homebuilders' Association and Tammy Feibelkorn of the Southwest Energy Efficiency Project as they discuss the Governor's attack on New Mexico's building codes. The Governor wants to roll-back building codes so that new buildings will consume more energy! This is bad news for everyone, especially new home buyers who will realize that the total cost of owning a new home just increased. Energy cost increases are much larger than the small savings realized by the building code roll-backs. The only entity that gains is the utility selling energy.
