This poster was originally designed for the workshops in Santa Fe at the MOCNA and SFAI. I wanted to design something about local issues and was told about the campaign to shut down PNM's coal powered plant. All of the posters made there were given away to workshop participants, I really liked this design a and wanted to create more of these posters and share them with organizations in New Mexico and Denver who are organizing to stop these coal plants from destroying the environment, the rest of these posters will be on sale here to help us cover the costs of producing and shipping these posters.
Just a couple facts:
PNM's San Juan coal plant uses 9.3 billion gallons of clean fresh water every year and produces that much toxic water which then contaminates our air, soil and streams.
PNM fights all progressive legislation and regulation (carbon pollution reduction rule, renewable portfolio standard - they wanted to cut it in half during the last legislature, while many other states are moving in the opposite direction - to increase the renewable requirements).
