Video highlights: EPA administrator keynotes SEER conference

Gina McCarthy, administrator of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, praises environmental lawyers, noting the important connection between the work of lawyers and the EPA agenda: “You know that America’s rule of law is only as good as the credible system that implements and enforces it. Laws talk the talk but implementation and strong enforcement is what walks the walk.  It separates us from other nations.” 

McCarthy delivered the keynote address to the American Bar Association Section of Environment, Energy and Resources 22nd Fall Conference Oct. 9 in Miami.
