On October 25 and 26, New Mexico House Speaker Brian Egolf (D-Santa Fe) will hold the “2021 New Mexico Climate Summit,” which aims to push radical enviro-Marxist policies upon the state, while bragging about job-killing anti-energy initiatives, such as New Mexico’s Green New Deal, the “Energy Transition Act.”
According to public documents obtained exclusively by the Piñon Post, Egolf’s event will leave New Mexico taxpayers on the hook for at least $14,134 for the event. According to the figures provided by Egolf’s office, taxpayers will shell out $2,500 for keynote speaker Maite Arce of the “Hispanic Access Foundation’s” travel, $500 for “printing,” $7,000 for “meeting planning,” $2,134 for “catering,” $750 for a supposed second keynote speaker’s travel, assumed to be Andrew Baumann of Global Strategy Group, $600 for a “Zoom operator,” $100 for email platform “Survey Monkey,” $50 for “name tags,” and $500 for “volunteer lunch.”
Scandal-ridden alleged serial groper Gov. Michelle Lujan Grisham is set to speak on the first day of the conference from 11:00 to 11:45, in which she is to speak about supposed “progress made and next steps” from the administration. Egolf will speak, as well as Secretary of Environment James Kenney, Energy, Minerals and Natural Resources Department Secretary Sarah Cottrell Propst, and other administration officials.
State Rep. Harry Garcia (D-Bernalillo, Cibola, McKinley, Socorro, San Juan, and Valencia) and Sen. Gay Kernan (R-Chaves, Eddy, and Lea) have already RSVP’d for the event. Announcements for the event claim over 150 “fellow state, local and community leaders are expected to attend.”
The event is likely to be chock-full of race-baiting regarding climate, according to Speaker Egolf’s press release announcing the function, writing, “Black, indigenous, and people of color (BIPOC) in New Mexico have long lived and worked on the frontlines of energy industries, bearing the heaviest burden and impact wrought by climate change, yet they are the most likely to be left behind by climate and clean energy policies.”
According to his bio, the second keynote speaker Andrew Baumann “worked for numerous advocacy groups with a particular focus on climate, clean energy and conservation issues, having worked with LCV, Environmental Defense Fund, Climate Power 2020, the Sierra Club, and many others. His work in 2020 was instrumental in helping convince Joe Biden to make climate a centerpiece of his campaign and embrace a more ambitious climate plan.”
Fringe enviro-Marxist groups Somos Un Pueblo Unido, Rio Grande Chapter of the Sierra Club, Natural Resources Defense Council, OLÉ, Center for Civic Policy, Western Resource Advocates, Environmental Defense Fund, Conservation Voters New Mexico, NM Wild, Power4NewMexico, the Angelica Foundation, and the Energy Foundation are all sponsors of the summit.
All attendees are required to wear masks and be vaccinated, according to the event’s invite.
A protest organized by pro-energy activists is set to take place outside of the building called “Rally Against MLG’s ‘Climate Change’ Summit” to buck the taxpayer-funded liberal propaganda event. It will take place from 11:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. on October 25 when Lujan Grisham is scheduled to speak. People in the Albuquerque area will be driving in a caravan up to Santa Fe at 10:00 a.m. that is meeting at 9:30 a.m. at the 550 Exit. More event details are below:
