New Mexico Maps

 This map is a work in progress. The uses of water, air and land are diverse in New Mexico and will change dramatically with climate change. For caretakers of this sacred trust, the map offers a bird’s eye view of the health of our environment. It documents primarily the energy-related sources of pollution, though in New Mexico other polluting factors are also at work.
