Summary

Recognizing the profound implications that global warming and climate variation could have on the economy, environment and quality of life in the Southwest, New Mexico Governor Bill Richardson signed Executive Order 05-033 on June 5th, 2005, establishing the New Mexico Climate Change Action Council and the New Mexico Climate Change Advisory Group (CCAG).

The Climate Change Action Group reviewed and provided recommendations to the Governor’s office regarding climate change policy. The Council was chaired by the Secretary of the Environment and will had representatives from the Departments of Agriculture; Economic Development; Energy, Mining, and Natural Resources; General Services; Health; Indian Affairs; and Transportation. The State Engineer, Director of Game and Fish, and the Governor’s Advisor on Energy and Environment also served on the Council. Drawing on its own expertise and the perspectives of the CCAG members, the Advisory Group found meaningful solutions that fit New Mexico’s unique needs and circumstances.
