The Economics of Energy & the Biden Administration

February 19, 2021 – New Mexico in Focus continues its coverage of how the Biden administration’s executive order and actions on climate change might affect New Mexicans, today and into the future. This week, correspondent Laura Paskus catches up with University of New Mexico economist Janie Chermak to talk about the oil and gas industry, climate change, and what it will take for renewable energy jobs to balance the inevitable losses from oil and gas as that industry declines in the coming years.
