Pamela Goodwin, a partner in the Energy, Environment and Utilities Practice, is quoted in Law 360 sharing her perspective on the Paris climate change deal. The article features takeaways from attorneys on the international agreement to limit greenhouse gas emissions in hopes of reducing the effects of global warming.

In the article Goodwin says,‘“Two hundred countries reaching an agreement on any topic is historic. The commitment is to strive to reach a common goal by individual planning and the obligation of each nation to periodically report back. Many nations may be tempted to pay lip service to simple solutions. Planning and implementation will require working within our existing infrastructure and energy distribution systems and their reliance upon fossil fuels, while reducing their carbon input by ensuring that they are regulated and operated to minimize their impact, as the world’s nations and their scientists make their plans for the future.”’
