NM reps seek stricter natural gas regulations

Back in the mid 1980s, when I was on the faculty at New Mexico State, my office was in a suite shared with Dr. Lowell Catlett (and three others). Lowell and I were most often the first in the office in the morning. One Monday morning old Lowell come bouncing into my office: “Hey Jimmy, I went to Texas this weekend. (He is a fellow native Texian).” 

You did? How was it?

“I saw a bumper sticker over there.” It said, “God, please send us just one more boom and we promise not to piss it off like we did the last one.” Read the article below and you will understand why I was reminded of that.


Democratic members of a U.S. House committee – including two members of New Mexico’s delegation – expressed concern Monday that lax oil and natural gas regulations are putting state residents at risk and depriving the state of revenue it should be getting.

While taxes and royalties from fossil fuel production have long helped prop up New Mexico’s budget, Gov. Michelle Lujan Grisham recently ordered Cabinet secretaries to come up with a plan to reduce methane emissions. She also signed legislation aimed at moving the state away from its oil and gas reliance – and toward solar, wind and other types of renewable energy.

Now isn’t that special. NM ranks 49th in unemployment. That means 48,787 New Mexicans don’t have a job. Haaland, however, wants to help those who already have a job to find a different one. 

“We shouldn’t have to suffer every time the price of oil goes down.”

Don’t spend it in the first place and you won’t have to “suffer” when the price of oil goes down.

Many of us are “suffering” from having to listen to this nonsense.

A Handbook for Ranch ManagersA Handbook for Ranch Managers.  In keeping with the “holistic” idea that the land, the livestock, the people and the money should be viewed as a single integrated whole: Part I deals with the management of the natural resources. Part II covers livestock production and Part III deals with the people and the money. Not only would this book make an excellent basic text for a university program in Ranch Management, no professional ranch manager’s reference bookshelf should be without it. It is a comprehensive reference manual for managing the working ranch. The information in the appendices and extensive bibliography alone is worth the price of the book.

You might also be interested in the supplement to this Handbook: Planned Grazing: A Study Guide and Reference Manual.

About Land & Livestock Interntional, Inc.

Land and Livestock International, Inc. is a leading agribusiness management firm providing a complete line of services to the range livestock industry. We believe that private property is the foundation of America. Private property and free markets go hand in hand—without property there is no freedom. We also believe that free markets, not government intervention, hold the key to natural resource conservation and environmental preservation. No government bureaucrat can (or will) understand and treat the land with as much respect as its owner. The bureaucrat simply does not have the same motives as does the owner of a capital interest in the property. Our specialty is the working livestock ranch simply because there are so many very good reasons for owning such a property. We provide educational, management and consulting services with a focus on ecologically and financially sustainable land management that will enhance natural processes (water and mineral cycles, energy flow and community dynamics) while enhancing profits and steadily building wealth.
