Tell Governor Martinez: Move Beyond Coal In New Mexico!

A new proposal put forth by the Martinez Administration to retire only a portion of PNM's San Juan coal-fired power plant would keep the two biggest coal smokestacks running far into the future with weak controls for smog-forming pollution that aggravates asthma and respiratory illnesses, particularly for children and seniors.

With a thoughtful transition, New Mexico can gradually move completely from coal to clean energy, saving billions of gallons of precious water, protecting public health and national parks, and creating a clean energy economy.

A complete transition at the San Juan Generating Station form coal to clean energy will go a long way in making this happen.

Tell Governor Martinez that only a complete retirement of PNM's coal plant and an orderly transition from coal to clean energy like solar power is acceptable.
Subject: Move Completely Beyond Coal at San Juan Generating Station

Dear Governor Martinez,

The New Mexico proposal to retire only a portion of PNM's San Juan Generating Station coal-fired power plant near Farmington is unacceptable because it would keep the plant polluting our state and our nearby national parks.

The two biggest coal smokestacks at San Juan Generating Station would run far into the future with weak controls for smog-forming pollution that aggravates asthma and respiratory illnesses, particularly for children and seniors.

With a thoughtful transition, New Mexico can gradually move completely from coal to clean energy, saving billions of gallons of precious water, protecting public health and national parks, and creating a clean energy economy. Please provide the leadership needed to deliver a better solution for our state than the current proposal.
