Research

Investigating problems and crafting solutions. 

Tackling air pollution in New Mexico: When power plants burn coal, oil or gas, they create the ingredients for ground-level ozone pollution, one of the main components of “smog” pollution. Repeated exposure to ozone can cause permanent lung damage and can even kill. Our report, “Dirty Energy’s Assault on our Health,” shines a spotlight on the health risks of ozone pollution and sets forth practical policy recommendations for cutting dangerous toxic emissions.

Education

Educating the public and making our voices heard.

In 2011, we informed thousands of New Mexicans about ways to use less energy, save fuel and save money. By taking simple steps at home, the average New Mexican can take control of their energy use, reducing emissions and decreasing our reliance on fossil fuels.
