Climate conference comes to Taos


Taos will host a one-day statewide conference on New Mexico's solutions for what is being termed the "climate crisis" Saturday (Oct. 28).

"Experts in science, economics and energy policy will erase any doubt that our human-caused climate crisis must be met with increasing urgency," according to a statement from Renewable Taos, University of New Mexico-Taos and Northern New Mexico-Climate Change Corps, which are jointly hosting the event.

Speakers, including Mark Reynolds of Citizen's Climate Lobby and Taos' Bill Brown, will present in Santa Fe with video streamed in Taos, Las Cruces and Albuquerque.

The main part of the event in Taos will last from 9 a.m. to noon and will take place at Bataan Hall at UNM-Taos' Civic Plaza Campus (115 Civic Plaza Drive). General admission in Taos is $10, though all students in the Taos area will be admitted for free. Additional donations are also being accepted.
