Viva Mexico!!!!!! They deserve energy independence and more positive help from us, after all, WE ARE both important neighbors. The Mexican peoples have helped OUR country enormously, it is important that we fix relations with them . I AM sure that with the new presidency they can feel the new era of decency and cooperation that is again america, WE Will and ARE uniting the world. I AM excited about everyone....thx Ben

This is a great move forward for the whole planet, as well as Mexico. I hope more countries get on board, and the trend continues.

This is a excellent beginning. It's good to see that Mexico is beginning its' changeover from fossil fuels to renewables. Those Zapotec Indian groups have good points, distorted by the AP editor. It's more likely that they're not against the production of wind power but against who benefits from that production. As for the earlier comment about encouraging Mexicans to stay home, a better encouragement would be to stop our big agricultural corporations from dumping their products in Mexico, thus putting many Mexican farmers out of business, forcing them to come to the US for work. Our trade treaty is the problem, not the Mexican immigrants. Dan S.
