MLG: New Mexico should “transition out of fossil fuels”

In case anyone ever thought that Gov. Michelle Lujan Grisham was a “friend” to New Mexico’s number one industry (which pays 40% of the State’s budget), she appeared on a webinar put on by the U.S. Climate Alliance.

While Lujan Grisham has often portrayed herself as an “ally” of the industry and a supporter of an “all of the above” energy strategy, that was when the industry was booming and revenues were growing. With (potentially) a new, “progressive”-dominated Legislature taking over this coming January, watch out for the Gov. to play to her radical environmental base by taking on the industry.
