Climate change is here and New Mexico is feeling its effects. What can we do to draw down our climate-changing carbon emissions, protect and restore our land and water, and adapt to harsher, more challenging conditions?

Now in its tenth year, the Gila Resources Information Project and the Upper Gila Watershed Alliance are relaunching Earth Matters, a bi-weekly program that will help you understand how New Mexicans are rising to the climate challenge and how you can too.

Each hour-long episode will bring to you conversations with people working on the ground to address climate change in the Southwest and provide you with information on how you can make a difference and help bring collective action to this global crisis.

Allyson Siwik and Donna Stevens are your hosts for Earth Matters, airing every Tuesday and Sunday at 10 am on Gila/Mimbres Community Radio.
