Silence greets climate-change report
Frontera NorteSur, Commentary
High fall is a glorious time in New Mexico. As farmers’ markets unload the last batches of home-grown produce, the lingering aromas of fresh, roasting green chile stimulate the senses. Pumpkins, soon transformed into scary faces, hop from the farm to haunt homes. Running down the Middle Rio Grande Valley, the bosque, or river forest, dazzles like a drooping ribbon of green, yellow and orange, nudging the big Elephant Butte Reservoir that supplies water to New Mexico, Texas and Mexico.
