N.M. can contribute to fuel needs and boost its agricultural economy

July 15 -- The summer of 2013 has the potential to be the worst drought that New Mexico has ever seen. The Canadian River Watershed in northeastern New Mexico, which provides irrigation water to Arch Hurley Conservancy District farmers, has seen no irrigation water in six out of the last 12 years. Ranchers across the state reduced their herds to 25 percent of their previous size, and sold thousands of acres of land and livestock to just barely pay the bills. >>View Article

US Moves At Least 100,000 Plug In Vehicles In Last 2 Years

North Carolinians want more renewable fuel

July 15 -- At the height of the summer driving season, it is unfortunate how dependent drivers in North Carolina and the rest of the country remain on high-priced gasoline.

We deserve our independence with more renewable fuel options at the pump. >>View Article

Beyond the Keystone Pipeline

July 11 -- Imagine if President Obama had promised in his long-awaited climate speech in June to launch the first 45 renewable-electricity projects ever built on federal land, enough to power 4.4 million homes. Imagine that he also pledged to slash the government’s carbon emissions by 15%, jack up vehicle-efficiency standards enough to eliminate an entire year’s worth of U.S. emissions by 2025 and enact appliance-efficiency standards that would save enough electricity to power every single-family home for two years. >>View Article
