It’s about New Mexico!

On the one hand, I really appreciate a frequent podcast about our great state - thanks for caring and using your time to contribute to the conversation! On the other hand, the slant is sometimes a little absurd.

An example from the last episode (about SB 548) - the guest (who overall had great info and seemed to be much more of an honest arbiter of facts than the host) claimed towards the end of the podcast that California retail electricity rates had gone up 60-80% in the last 5-7 years, with the implication that it’s primarily due to renewable portfolio standards. On the face of it, that’s a dramatic claim and should raise eyebrows and curiosity on the part of the podcast hosts. Once one looks into it, one finds that it’s baldly false.

Looking at the EIA, (eia.gov/electricity/monthly , table 5.6A) and comparing Decembers to Decembers, you have to go back to Dec. 2004 to crack a 60% nominal cost increase per kWh since Dec. 2018 (latest available data).

The Rio Grande Foundation should really issue a correction about this.

The Source for NM Public Policy Issues

Great podcast that is the best place to get accurate information on NM public policy issues. These guys really know their stuff.

Interesting and Thought Provoking

Paul and Dowd are great. Their issues discussions have taught me a lot. I especially like their “politicians behaving badly” segment.
