Taos Dems hold climate talk

Posted

The Taos Democratic Party held an open meeting Monday (May 6) to discuss the Green New Deal and the effects of climate change in the future.

Nearly 50 people met at the headquarters on Paseo del Pueblo Sur to listen to various members of the community speak about the future of climate change and how people can get involved. Members of Amigos Bravos, the Green Party and others spoke about various way to help the climate from the small local impacts to calling legislators and lawmakers.

The Democrats' presentation centered around education about the proposed Green New Deal, a federal program to address funding and efforts to combat climate change.

Recently, Governor Michelle Lujan Grisham signed New Mexico onto the U.S. Climate Alliance and ordered for a New Mexico Climate Task Force to be assembled.

At the meeting, Taos Democrats offered several solutions to help reduce someone's carbon footprint, including using LED lights, installing solar panels and planting trees to help filter the air.
