New Mexico House Speaker Brian Egolf is partnering with some of the most extreme out-of-state funded dark money groups to pound the final nail in the coffin for New Mexico’s oil and gas industry, which contributes nearly 40% of all revenues to the state coffers.
The years-long assault on the energy industry has ramped up during the tenure of scandal-ridden alleged serial groper Gov. Michelle Lujan Grisham, who has had a penchant to rid New Mexico of its sustainable and clean energy industry and to replace these energy sources with expensive, dangerous, and non-wildlife friendly alternatives in solar and wind.
Egolf and these enviro-Marxists at what they are calling the “New Mexico Climate Summit” on October 25-26 being held at the Roundhouse.
According to the Santa Fe New Mexican, “The goal is to come away with policy ideas that can be introduced in the next legislative session and to Gov. Michelle Lujan Grisham so they can work together to help the state adapt and ease the impacts of climate change, said state House Speaker Brian Egolf, whose office organized the event.”
Egolf noted that “This is not meant to be sitting around and talking.” He added, “We definitely want to come out of the conference with actionable ideas.”
“During breakout sessions, participants will look for ways the state can move away from fossil fuels, which will lower greenhouse gas emissions, while offering an equitable energy transition, especially for ethnic communities that have suffered more harmful effects under the current system,” the New Mexican reports.
In attendance at this event, which appears to be an official state-sponsored summit, will partner with some of the most extreme groups imaginable, many of them being funded by billionaire economy-killing George Soros who bankrupted the Bank of England and destabilized the British pound.
These groups include the disgraced New Mexico Wild, Somos Un Pueblo Unido, the Sierra Club’s Rio Grande Chapter (Directly Soros funded), the Natural Resources Defense Council, OLÉ, the Center for Civic Policy, Western Resource Advocates, the Environmental Defense Fund, Conservation Voters New Mexico, Power4NewMexico, the Angelica Foundation, and the Energy Foundation.
Egolf claims the “climate change” conspiracy theory is “the most urgent, pressing problem ever faced by humanity.” He says, “We’ve got to demand action at the international and the federal level. But we can’t wait for them to do everything. And we can’t ignore opportunities for us to contribute here.”Democrats proposed many enviro-Marxist bills in the past legislature, many of which the Piñon Post helped kill, including one bill that would institute a “clean fuel standard,” resulting in a 20+ cent per gallon gas tax that would hurt the poorest New Mexicans.
