Someone once said something that captured the idea that you cannot know everything yourself. Given that reality, a sensible strategy is to find people around you who know things and then adopt their positions on some matters as your own.
Meet Meinhard Doelle. When I want to know what I think about something related to environmental law, I ask Meinhard what we think about it.
Most urgently, we need to know more about Paris. Meinhard obliges. Read, “The Paris Agreement: Historic Breakthrough or High Stakes Experiment?” The piece is a wonderful precis on Paris – the process and elements of the outcome. Meinhard also offers some early reflections on those outcomes. We are cautiously optimistic about Paris, it seems.
