‘Time Is Running Out to Save Our Planet,’ New Mexico Governor Says

As she endorsed Joe Biden during the Democratic National Convention, Gov. Michelle Lujan Grisham called for action to combat the existential crisis of climate change.

I’m proud that New Mexico has shown what climate leadership looks like. While the Trump administration has been eliminating environmental protections, we’ve expanded them. While they’ve been rolling back regulations on oil and gas, we’ve taken on polluters and held them accountable. We’ve committed to a renewable energy future with exciting and fulfilling careers for workers all across our beautiful state, including right here in the heart of northern New Mexico. We’re laying a road map here for what America can and should look like in the 21st century. As president, Joe Biden will rejoin the international climate agreement, and the United States will once again lead on this critical issue. At home, he’ll invest in energy workers, and he will deliver for working families across the U.S., helping them build meaningful careers while accelerating our nation and world into a clean, green 21st century and well beyond. We know time is running out to save our planet. We have the chance this November to end two existential crises: the Trump presidency and the environmental annihilation he represents. We have the chance this November to attack the climate crisis, invest in green 21st century jobs and embrace the clean energy revolution our country, our young people, are crying out for — and the leadership the rest of the world is waiting for. The choice is clear. The choice is Joe Biden.
