Some New Mexico candidates are way too close to the oil and gas industry, maintaining that they can keep existing wells pumping while studying a transition to clean energy at some time in the misty distant future. Others are much more aware of the need for a transition now. We’ve tried to highlight folk like Kristina Ortiz in District 42.
