Professor Cinnamon Carlarne was quoted in the City Lab article titled, Why Toledo Just Gave Legal Rights to Lake Erie.

 

“One of the biggest challenges that the [Lake Erie] Bill of Rights will have is moving from vision to enactment,” said Cinnamon Carlarne, an Ohio State University law professor. “That is part of a larger conversation trying to advance the role that law plays in protecting ecosystems for a variety of reasons—not the least of which is that we are as humans fundamentally dependent on them.”
