Sierra Club Lights It Up in Las Cruces


They say a picture's worth a thousand words. That's Las Cruces, New Mexico, Mayor Ken Miyagishima above, holding a compact fluorescent light bulb at City Hall, where he signed the U.S. Mayors Climate Protection Agreement on November 20. The photo ran in the Las Cruces Sun-News the following day.

Present at the ceremony was Sierra Club Rio Grande Chapter organizer Dan Lorimer, who has been working with the chapter's Southern Group to help the city meet its goal for reducing CO2 emissions. "Thursday's signing helps Las Cruces get on a fast track for its clean energy commitments," Lorimer says. Mayor Miyagishima announced that starting early next year, El Paso Electric Co. and various Las Cruces retailers will exchange their incandescent light bulbs for CFLs.
