To: President Robert Frank:

University of New Mexico: Go Fossil Free!

Reason for signing

  • UNM sent their lobbyist to support bills in 2015 NM legislature that would place fossil-industry convenience above local self-government and rational land-use planning (all bills were killed despite UNM's input). Pro-industry legislators including ALEC's pride, Nate Gentry, have made none-too-subtle threats against the jobs of faculty (including myself) who speak up against compete deregulation. Clearly, being funded from fossil sources compromises the University's integrity.
