Hi everyone,

First of all, thank you for your tireless work on behalf of the IRPC,
Minda. You are amazing, and it is so appreciated!

It's also good to hear from you, Robert, and I'm glad to hear you're well!

I also want to share something with everyone. I'm one of the
sustainability track co-chairs for RightsCon. Elizabeth Goitein, the
co-director of the Liberty and National Security Program at the Brennan
Center for Justice at New York University's School of Law, just delivered a
really thought-provoking yet short talk on how using emergency powers to
fight climate change could backfire. I thought you may be interested in
listening to it.

You can watch it via this Twitter post that I linked the video in:

Have a good summer all, and stay safe and well.
