Big Green tightens grip: A nominating committee will soon name at least five people and select three to serve on the Public Regulation Commission (PRC) beginning in 2023. Then Governor Michelle Lujan Grisham will submit her 3 hand-picked appointees to be confirmed by the state Senate.
The committee will be named this month by the House & Senate leaders as well as the Economic Development Secretary Energy, Minerals and Natural Resources Secretary (EMRD).
Speaking of the Energy, Minerals and Natural Resources Secretary: On the heels of a new federal report claiming companies in the Permian Basin are probably “significantly” underreporting emissions, the EMRD’s Oil Conservation Division (OCD) recently launched an online portal so the public can see natural gas waste reports required by the state government.
New green laws require companies to hand over business data and are mandated each year to increasingly cut emissions during their energy production all to they can meet the government’s dictate to “achieve” 98 percent gas capture by 2026.
Collusion: Mariel Nanasi, head of the radical eco-fascist organization New Energy Economy of Santa Fe, demands that members of the nominating committee be eco “visionaries” who privilege the renewable energy corporate lobby and their political allies.
She said there’s going to be “big trouble” if “there’s nobody who has the interests that I have…on that committee,” and she can tell from committee’s choice whether the new selection process will favor “utility companies” or environmental special interests.
What is this new selection process? It’s the one that her group and many others, like the Western Resource Advocates, initiated in order to turn the Public Relations Commissioner into an unelected appointment by the Governor and eliminating two positions on the board (from 5 members to 3.)
Big Green’s attack on our constitutional democratic process was in retaliation against a Democrat environmentalist Commissioner who was not extreme enough for MLG’s corporate cronies.
Steganography: EMRD Secretary Sandoval directed the New Energy Economy and all the other Big Green activists to the online portal to find dirt on energy providers by comparing gas reports with other reports (that providers are forced to submit to the OCD, such as venting and flaring data.)
EMNRD General Counsel Dylan Fuge then directed eco-fascists to conduct surveys to find more dirt and give him the pretense he needs as General Counsel to go after the oil and gas industry by requiring costly third-party audits.
