Los Alamos Public Library Systems News:

From forests to farm fields, reservoirs to rivers, the impacts of climate change are obvious all around the state of New Mexico. How does warming intensify environmental problems, exacerbate inequity, and change how we relate to our landscapes? What hope is there for the future?

Join the discussion with Los Alamos Public Libraries and author and journalist Laura Paskus in this live-streamed program via Zoom, 7 p.m. Thursday, July 8. Register on the library events calendar.

Paskus is a longtime reporter based in Albuquerque and the environment reporter for New Mexico PBS, where she produces the monthly series, “Our Land: New  Mexico’s Environmental Past, Present and Future”. She covers climate and the environment for “New Mexico In Focus”, and has been looking into the military’s contamination of groundwater with PFAS.

Her book “At the Precipice: New Mexico’s Changing Climate”, was published in September 2020 by the University of New Mexico Press.
