Law360 Runs Akin Gump Article Examining Impact of Biden Climate Change Focus on Traditional Energy Sectors

'Biden Climate Push Means Fossil Fuel Cos. Must Innovate,' an article by Akin Gump partners Stephen Boone, Cynthia Mabry and Stacey Mitchell that was originally an Akin Gump client alert, has been published by Law360.

The article discusses the Biden-Harris administration's focus on climate change across all industries and the 'unprecedented degree of pressure' it places on traditional energy sources, such as oil, gas, and coal, to 'prioritize innovation in order to sustain long-term viability.'

In this article, the authors look to 'assess the short- and medium-term future of fossil fuels in the U.S. in the wake of the Leaders' Summit on Climate and the G-7 meeting, and discuss the federal energy innovation landscape we can expect to see over the next several years.'
