The land of enchantment has joined 19 other States in the US Climate Alliance. Governor Michelle Lujan Grisham signed an executive order that will see the State pursue goals set forth in the 2015 Paris Climate Agreement. The order sets a specific goal of a 45% reduction in greenhouse gas emissions by 2030. The order directs the State to research ways it can reduce greenhouse gas emissions and increase the use of renewable energy. Finally, the order forms a climate change task force that will make a state-wide strategy to combat climate change.
