350NM Speaker Series – NM Methane Regs: Good Enough?

June 24 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm MDT

What: Speaker Series: New Federal and NM Methane Regs: Good Enough?

Who: Antoinette Reyes, southern organizer, Sierra Club Rio Grande Chapter

Where: Zoom registration LINK

When: 6:30-8:00pm MDT, Monday, June 24, 2024

Description: Methane pollution will be the most impactful greenhouse gas (GHG) over the next 20 years. To step back from the climate change tipping point, NM and federal agencies have rolled out tougher methane emission standards to rein in the oil and gas industry. Are the new rules going to be enough? Will they be enforced?

Antoinette Reyes will help us answer these questions with a review of why methane is such an import GHG, the background and recent changes in federal and NM methane regulations and regulation enforcement. And how these changes may or may not move us toward IPCC goals and goals set by our governor’s Executive Order 2019-003 to reduce NM statewide reduction in GHG emissions of at least 45% by 2030.

Antoinette’s presentation will be followed by a Q&A and discussion.
