Developing New Mexico’s Geothermal Heat and Electricity
Video Description: Learn about the NM Geothermal Resource Development Act for 2023 and the great potential of this clean, zero emissions source of heat & electricity. It could be a world-class 24×7 clean power source for New Mexico, providing sustainable economic development and a just transition path for drillers from the oil industry. NM is #6 in national geothermal potential. This bill will help develop it. Presented Jan. 12, 2023.
Blue Hydrogen Briefing
Video Description: “Blue” Hydrogen from fracked methane is not a climate solution. The best science shows that it is worse for the climate than just burning natural gas directly. We must say no to a hydrogen hub. In this updated briefing on the Blue Hydrogen Hub, with Tom Solomon of 350NM and WELC’s methane expert Dr. Tom Singer, learn why blue hydrogen is being pushed by the fossil fuel industry to sell more natural gas. It is NOT a climate solution.
Radio Interview on Dec. 22, 2022 with 350NM’s Tom Solomon and Mike Eisenfeld of San Juan Citizen’s Alliance on the hydrogen production proposals in New Mexico.
