Three members of New Mexico’s congressional delegation praised the U.S. House’s roll out of its Climate Action Crisis Action Plan last week.
The three – U.S. Reps. Deb Haaland and Ben Ray Luján and U.S. Sen. Tom Udall – played roles in crafting legislation included in the plan, which calls for the country to reach net-zero greenhouse gas emissions economy-wide by no later than 2050.
Luján was on the committee that introduced the plan.
“2020 is on track to being the warmest year on record, which could cause serious natural disasters across New Mexico and the nation,” he said in a news release. “Our health, our economy, and our future are all at stake.”
