Thinking in renewable energy terms, New Mexico just screams solar energy. But a report released today by the New Mexico Public Interest Research Group (NMPIRG) Education Fund shows that the state can and will do a lot more to reach the goals set by Governor Richardson last June to seriously reduce emissions throughout the state in the coming decades. By 2050, the goal is to emit 75 percent less than in 2000.
One of the states largest carbon dioxide pollutant sources is – surprise – the transportation network. Therefore, the report calls for requirements for cleaner-burning vehicles and more efficient tires. The NMPIRG also urges New Mexico to adopt a biofuels standard so that at least a portion of all fuel sold in the state contains some biofuel.
