We also explore the ongoing history of New Mexico’s water and changing climate through the work and reporting of Laura Paskus, environmental reporter and senior producer of New Mexico PBS, “Our Land: New Mexico’s Environmental Past, Present and Future”. This episode also features work by Changing Climate artists-in-residence, including Christine Huhn, Deborah Jack, Weihui Lee, Jay Baker, Val Chang, Rachel Preston, and Jessica Houston.
