Should President Biden prohibit oil and gas production or impose dramatic restrictions on industry methane and carbon dioxide emissions? This and related actions are adamantly opposed by the New Mexico Oil and Gas Association (NMOGA) which points to the industry’s contributions to New Mexico’s economy and State budget. NMOGA’s President is Harvard educated Ryan Flynn, the former head of New Mexico’s Environment Dept., and he joins host Stephen Spitz this month.
Among other topics we will discuss the current status and long-term prospects for oil and natural gas production in New Mexico and how this squares with climate change? Similarly, what is being done to protect against the risks of methane leaks, a much more powerful greenhouse gas than CO2.
