Nov 16, 2022 – 

New Mexico must take action to protect the health of its people from the effects of extreme weather and other aspects of climate change.

Climate change is increasingly harming the health of New Mexicans, and the rate of extreme weather events caused by climate change, such as heat waves, drought, and flooding – along with wildfires and air pollution – is quickly accelerating. Over the next 50 years, the state will see an increased drought risk, leading to dryer soil, less snowpack, stressed vegetation, and a substantial decline in river flows.
