Abstract: At the recent economic conference in Davos, Switzerland, in January 2011, President Felipe Calderón went out of his way to boast about a new agreement that the Mexican government had just reached with the Spanish engineering company Iberdrola to construct a wind-energy plant in Oaxaca State with capacity to generate 20 megawatts of energy. After all, Calderón has gone to great lengths to promote his administration’s commitment to environmentally friendly and renewable energy. This effort helped the Mexican president convince the UN to hold the latest round of negotiations on global climate change in Cancún in December 2010. Yet, despite the public perception that Calderón is making a stronger effort to make Mexico a "green" country, critics suggest that the Mexican president and the Congress are not doing enough to promote renewable energy. A strong effort is important, they say, because Mexico is far behind other countries in implementing the technologies that will make a major difference in reducing pollution and ensuring Mexico’s energy security.
