Climate Scientists Tell Us We Have One Generation to Transition
Climate scientists tell us that if we stay on our current course we will see global temperatures rise up to 4°C by the end of the century.
The results, they warn will be catastrophic climate disruption including widespread drought, flooding, and massive population displacement caused by rising sea levels, extreme weather events, and the spread of disease and hunger. In order to mitigate these events, we need to keep global temperature rise below 2 degrees C. This requires that global greenhouse gas emissions peak in 2015 and from there go down to zero.
With a shift to a clean-energy economy, we can still create the sustainable and prosperous future we all want. But we have to act now.

PNM's Integrated Resource Plan - Coal for another decade, 3 new gas plants, more nuclear, very little renewables for ratepayers, and NO storage. Click here to follow the cases latest news.
This summer we anticipate PNM will file its request to Abandon the San Juan Coal Plant. Click here for background information about what will likely be the most important case we've every intervened in to date -- as it will decide more than 450 megawatts of replacement power and set the terms of closure -- including clean-up, who pays for reclamation costs, who pays for stranded assets, and how the local community's needs are considered and financially addressed. It will likely be precedent setting as coal closure cases across the country are creating the legal doctrine that others will have to follow.
