I Am Still In – Stand with 194 Countries and Resist President Trump

On June 1st, President Trump announced the United States would withdraw from the Paris Agreement on climate change. This decision threatens our security, our public health and welfare, our economic prosperity, and our clean energy industry, which supports millions of U.S. jobs. It threatens the air we breathe and the water we drink. It threatens our ecosystems and disproportionately affects the most vulnerable people on our planet. Withdrawing from the Paris Agreement does not represent the will of the American people.

PNM to fine ratepayers with solar panels; Solar fines subsidize purchase of coal mine

New Mexico’s monopoly public power company  — PNM — has announced plans to fine residential solar power producers. It’s a move that would increase PNM’s profits ahead of another move to purchase one of the country’s largest coal mines, doubling down on PNM’s investment in dirty coal technology for decades to come. New Mexico’s monopoly public power company wants to buy a coal mine – and they just announced a new plan to fine residential solar producers to pay for it. Public Service Company of New Mexico (PNM) has reported more than $424 Million in income over the past four years and are expected to add another $20 million or more in this quarter alone. Apparently that windfall’s not enough, however, as PNM just announced an aggressive plan to raise rates and add new fines and fees to customers.
