March 19, 2022, Opinion: "Russia’s brutal invasion of Ukraine is a tragedy in many respects, but one is the stark reminder it serves as to how difficult it may prove to tether every nation in the world to the arduous goal of rapidly reaching net-zero emissions. To the extent that the West labors hereafter to destroy Russian President Vladimir Putin's economy via sanctions, it should expect little cooperation in pursuing a climate goal that relies heavily on international goodwill."
