  • While polluters should be punished for environmental degradation, excessive litigation can stall progress and drive up costs for clean energy projects.
  • To address climate change we need to work with our energy producers and reduce barriers for innovators and entrepreneurs.

“So as we move past Glasgow, it’s essential to look ahead – to focus on results. Common sense and innovative solutions that leverage the private sector, not lawsuits that attack them, will make a real difference. And that’s how we should define success.”
