All quotes about Carbon

Vince Cable - Stansted Airport

Instead, these past two years the Conservatives have done their best to trash our green industries and undo the progress made during the coalition years. This report shows that becoming carbon-free by 2050 will be crucial if we are to meet the Paris agreement's ambitious target of limiting temperature rises to 1.5 degrees. Furthermore, it sets out how this ambition can be delivered.feedback

Jürgen Schenck

It's something that might be overhyped. We're intent to go on with diesel … it is a good technology for [cutting] carbon emissions.feedback

Maria Tuzzeo

You know these people. You know them. They're from your neighborhood. You know how bad it is. You're brought up with the kids. They go swimming at the pool. It's just so sad.feedback

Dick Co

Traditionally, solar-fuelled artificial photosynthesis has been a government-funded effort. But accelerated by the US election last year, we're seeing a quick shift from government money to philanthropists like Bill Gates and Tom Steyer.feedback

Matt Lucas

Technologies to capture CO2 from the air, like Climeworks' units, have the potential for the sort of steep price declines that we've seen from solar, wind, and batteries, which are also factory manufactured products.feedback

Bas Eickhout

We are just making sure that in a worst-case scenario, if the talks go wrong and if the UK is out of the bloc, then at least we don't end up with an additional oversupply on the market.feedback

Diane Holdorf - Kellogg's

As one of the first ten companies to have approved science-based greenhouse gas emissions targets in 2015, we've already invested in energy efficiency and low carbon technologies. Going 100 percent renewable is the obvious next step; lowering business risk, generating financial savings, and helping other companies make the switch as well.feedback

Joao Castro Neves - Anheuser-Busch

As we strive to bring people together to build a better world, we at Anheuser-Busch are dedicated to reducing our carbon emissions. Helping to grow the renewable energy market is not only good for the environment, it is a strategic business move as we strive for long-term sustainability. Now more than ever, we are excited to lead our company's global effort toward a renewable future and, partnering with Enel, set an industry example of how major companies can help to make a difference in climate change.feedback

Richard Harrington

This investment will help the UK meet its climate targets while supporting jobs in Britain's growing renewable industry. The UK has the largest offshore wind capacity in the world and low carbon businesses have a combined turnover of £43 billion, employing 234,000 people.feedback

Richard Harrington

We've placed clean growth at the heart of the Industrial Strategy to unlock opportunities across the country, while cutting carbon emissions. The offshore wind sector alone will invest £17.5bn in the UK up to 2021 and thousands of new jobs in British businesses will be created by the projects announced today. This government will continue to seize these opportunities as the world moves towards a low carbon future, and will set out ambitious proposals in the upcoming Clean Growth Plan.feedback

Mark Horsley - Northern Gas Networks

The site will bring together the best and brightest in this field and encourage the big thinking that is required if we are to secure, affordable, low carbon energy future. Fully integrated energy systems that combine electricity, gas, and renewables to power heating, lighting and transport, can help to reduce the use of primary energy, cut costs and increase the reliability of our energy networks. It really is an issue of national importance and one which we take very seriously.feedback

Phil Sheppard - National Grid

Tidal power presents a reliable and predictable source of renewable generation that has the potential for highly flexible operation in the future. We have worked alongside tidal lagoon developers to gain an understanding of the operational characteristics of the proposed lagoons. This infrastructure project will have a significant impact as we move towards an increasingly low carbon electricity network.feedback

Tom Greatrex

With two-thirds of the UK's currently dispatchable generation capacity due to retire by 2030, including all but one of the current nuclear fleet, the UK will need the full range of low carbon technologies to provide the reliable, secure and readily available power for homes, businesses and public services.feedback

Maarten Wetselaar - Royal Dutch Shell

Heavy transport by ships, trucks and buses can't be electrified and the lowest carbon alternative is for them to use LNG.feedback

Richard Sedano

Drift is not just offering to help consumers get access to energy in the market that meets their specifications for price and carbon/renewable, they are also offering an opportunity to 'prosumers' (consumers who also produce resources through solar PV or demand response of a range of types) to monetize investments they make (solar PV and demand response enabling investments) and actions they take (demand response actions). These actions and investments would otherwise occur but be uncompensated and not guided by market values, or not occur at all.feedback

Robert Engelman

The fewer children you have and the longer you wait to have them, the better it will be for the future of the planet; the less carbon emissions there are going to be. It's an issue of scale and momentum.feedback

Fabrice Leveque - World Wide Fund for Nature

This is yet more evidence that a zero-carbon future is in our grasp. However, at the present rate it will take over 100 years for us to ensure our homes are carbon neutral. This is clearly not good enough, and the government must stop dragging its feet and make sure more homes are renovated each year. Our cold and leaky homes pile hundreds of pounds on to people's fuel bills, can damage their health, and are adding to climate change.feedback

Kelvin Droegemeier

He absolutely believes the planet is warming, that [carbon dioxide] is a greenhouse gas, and that it contributes to warming.feedback

Ben van Beurden - Royal Dutch Shell

The world needs renewables. But renewables produce electricity and electricity is less than 20pc of the world's energy system. The world needs battery electric cars. They are on our roads already and we need many more of them. But batteries are not the answer for every road journey, let alone for shipping, freight or air travel. The energy transition to a low carbon future will happen. It has to. But it will take time to happen. It will take generations to happen. And the world still needs oil. It still needs gas.feedback

DJ Pandian - The Asian Infrastructure Investment Bank

Investing in clean, renewable energy is a big part of our strategy to promote a sustainable and low-carbon future for Asia. We are supporting this project because it contributes to Egypt's renewable energy capacity, and it will help position the country as a regional energy hub, which will have economic benefits for the entire region.feedback

Ben Oquist

In its 2013 annual report the MCA boasts it 'was at the forefront of the debates over the carbon and mining taxes; and their abolition (expected after July 2014) will be in no small part due to the council's determined advocacy on both issues'. While the commonwealth's key scientific research organisation effectively funds political advocacy for the coal industry, it works to prohibit its own staff from commenting on national science policy.feedback

Sheldon Whitehouse

Senator Schatz and I extend an open hand and olive limb. Find Senator Schatz and me a Republican to negotiate with. Then let's talk about the economics. Let's talk about the revenue.feedback

Jill Sigal

We believe that we have a proposal that is a climate solution that is beneficial to the U.S. economy and national security.feedback

Robert Greenstein

To be sure, there is a possible exception: a carbon tax that returns its proceeds to the public via a universal payment.feedback

Robert Greenstein

If a carbon tax could pass, we might need to focus the proceeds available for these payments on low- and moderate-income families – so the payments would be adequate to offset the higher energy costs these families would face as a result of the tax – rather than extending the payments all the way up the income scale in universal fashion.feedback

Keith Brown

That is why I'm pleased that the Scottish Government will also be able to support our first new geothermal heating system in almost two decades, allowing local residents to access low carbon energy at an affordable price.feedback

Gabriel Bowen

I think you need to look at the delta, or the type of change that we see, as we go into these [past warming events] because we know that we're forcing the system by adding carbon to it, and we can see just what the pattern of change is over that base condition. That's not to say that we expect that starting from where we are today is going to be identical, but it gives us really our only experimentally based look at how the system responds to that kind of push.feedback

Paul Bowers - Georgia Power

Our experience provides every indication that we can do a better job than Westinghouse alone as we move forward to complete the project. The two new units at Plant Vogtle will be in service for 60 to 80 years and will add another low-cost, carbon-free energy source to our already diverse fuel mix.feedback

Marcus Gutjahr

The key things is the acidification took 20,000 years and if we had introduced enough methane over 20,000 years to keep the pH so low, then the carbon signature would be [very different to what we see].feedback

Marcus Gutjahr

[The PETM] was always regarded as the best natural analogue for current anthropogenic carbon emissions – but we have found that not even that event is a actually good analogue. We are actually currently marching in unknown territory.feedback

Damien Walmsley - British Dental Association

Prosecco offers a triple whammy of carbonation, sweetness and alcohol, which can put your teeth at risk, leading to sensitivity and enamel erosion. Carbonated beverages get their fizz from the release of carbon dioxide, which dissolves into carbonic acid. This provides a refreshing taste but also makes these drinks more acidic. Added to that, prosecco comes with about one teaspoon of sugar per flute.feedback

Detlef van Vuuren

Air conditioning is wonderful – I would not want to live in Houston or Miami or Phoenix without air conditioning – but it puts enormous stress on our electricity systems and results in billions of tonnes of carbon dioxide emission annually.feedback

Jesse Norman

We are committed to cutting carbon emissions and promoting new environmentally friendly fuels that will help us meet that goal. We are making funding available to innovative businesses, which will lead the way in developing alternative fuels that are efficient, sustainable and clean. We want every new car and van in the UK to be zero-emission by 2040, but we know lorries and aeroplanes will rely on more traditional fuels for years to come, so we must promote environmentally friendly alternatives.feedback

Duncan Sinclair

Their roles are definitely changing, that's absolutely clear. They are very much at the forefront of facilitating the move to lower-carbon power, particularly in connecting renewables and electric vehicles. That's a big change: not just technically, but in how they plan to operate the system to meet future customer needs. These companies are becoming much more customer-centric, particularly those which are facing a lot of connection requests in their areas. They have been caught out by the speed of change.feedback

Jeremy Woods - Imperial College

On balance, it's a positive thing if it's done well ... but we also need to remember that tree planting takes time and investment and so not all, in fact, very few, of the 10bn trees are likely to be planted within the next 5 years. The new forest has to be there in perpetuity if the carbon is to be kept out of the atmosphere. And you need to help food production and local communities.feedback

Felix Creutzig

I would say that [solar] will rise anyway further, and it will have increasing market shares, whatever happens with the carbon price.feedback

Tony Wood

Malcolm Turnbull says coal will be part of the energy mix for the next several decades, and this is true, but it is a declining part of that mix. We may have a bigger share, but it is still a bigger share of a declining market. Unless someone does something with carbon capture and storage – or the world turns away from acting on climate change, which doesn't seem likely – this is not an industry with a long-term future.feedback

Peter Cook

We need to be realistic about it, it's not going to be the solution to the problem of global warming and climate change. I'm sure it will work chemically, and they've shown that it does. The issues is the extent to which you can deploy it.feedback

Marcus Dawe

There is a big demand among consumers for green building products. The interest around the carbon brick has been extraordinary, but we're going beyond that. This is all about getting them to a scale and getting them as economical as we can.feedback

Marcus Dawe

As much as possible we want to make this an environmental solution. It really is the end state for carbon.feedback

Peter Cook

The difficulty is just the scale of the issue that we're facing. I think it's one of these processes where you'll be able to make money from it in the local area. The difficulty is, for instance we're getting 36bn tonnes of CO2 per annum from our use of fossil fuel. It's important to keep that sort of number in mind when you think about the scale of the thing.feedback

Laura Taylor

The UK government's long-overdue clean growth plan needs to prove that this government is serious about speeding up the low carbon transition, not slackening the pace. The benefits to citizens are enormous but areas like home energy efficiency and heating are lagging behind and need urgent political attention.feedback

Kelly O'Shanassy

For a multibillion-dollar multinational to challenge such a meagre fine shows real contempt for the Queensland and Australian public. If this is their attitude now, what will it be like it they are allowed to construct a massive dirty new coalmine that would contribute to the destruction of our Great Barrier Reef and threaten our planet with more carbon pollution?feedback

Dylan Sage - ExxonMobil

We wanted to have a better framework to understand under that scenario how much equity of ours is at risk. Subsequently, we've gotten out of a lot of our Exxon shares when they wouldn't take seriously the risks to their business model around a low-carbon scenario.feedback

Dan Reicher

There's a big gulf between the president's words and the actions of the administration on support for carbon capture.feedback

Karla Raettig

In this current national political environment, it's more important than ever for Governor Hogan to take the lead and stand strong with the other states in RGGI.feedback

Mark Kresowik - Sierra Club

With the current disastrous policies and rhetoric of the Trump administration, we're pleased to see these states step up, listen to their constituents, and come together to increase clean energy in the region.feedback

Ben Grumbles

This a strong and environmentally protective approach, it embraces the art of the possible. This is a primary example of real progress on climate change.feedback

Jonathan Sanderman - Woods Hole Research Center

There's a lot of studies showing that if you adopt recommended best management practices, you could slowly regain some fraction of that lost carbon. We know how much carbon is in the atmosphere now. So that just changes how we apportion the blame historically.feedback

Thomas Crowther

Modifying large-scale agricultural practices to restore some of these lost soil carbon stocks might be a valuable strategy in our efforts to dampen climate change.feedback

Michael Wara

I think this kind of work is really important in the sense that it's looking closely at what is actually happening as we develop carbon markets.feedback

Michael Wara

In some sense, forest carbon is trading one kind of co-benefit for another kind of co-benefit. It's not strictly a benefit, it's a trade-off, because we're going to burn more carbon in California in exchange for storing more carbon elsewhere.feedback

Bruce Adderley

The Norwegians have offered to be the solution for the whole of North-West Europe and are galvanising industry to do just that. Bring us your carbon,' they're saying. But there's no reason that the UK couldn't do that itself.feedback

Marta Bodi

In 2008, I felt faint on a trip to Nairobi and had to be put on oxygen. I couldn't operate the flight home so I returned as a passenger. I was signed off long-term sick and spent the next two years pretty much bedridden. I had no energy, I couldn't sleep, I felt achy and I couldn't walk without help. If I breathed chemicals, I would vomit straight away. I was then diagnosed with multiple chemical sensitivity and instructed to wear a carbon-activated mask. I was like a 90-year-old in a thirtysomething's body.feedback

Tim Echols

It’s a hedge against a low-carbon future—and much more.feedback

Stu Bresler - PJM Interconnection

If carbon emissions are the concern and that is the public policy issue with which policy makers are concerned, the simple be-all answer from a market perspective is putting a price on carbon.feedback

Gary Cohn

We are going to hit the ground running, literally this month on tax reform. We are here to execute his agenda.feedback

Eli Lehrer

I won't say it's likely, but it's more likely than it has been in some time. And if the stars align perfectly, I could see a carbon tax happening.feedback

Sheldon Whitehouse

There are Republicans willing to work with us, and not just a few. They just need the prospect of safe passage through the political kill zone.feedback

Grover Norquist

What is that Taylor Swift song? We are never, ever, ever getting back together? This is never, ever, ever going to happen.feedback

Brian Schatz

There are only a handful of options in terms of generating revenue for broad-based tax reform, and they're all very close to dead on arrival. This is the one proposal that could attract a significant number of Democrats.feedback

Lisa Murkowski

I haven't heard anybody within the administration taking point on this, so my sense would be no. But things happen around here.feedback

Kelly Love

We don't officially comment on legislation unless it's something we are actively supporting or is about to be considered in Congress.feedback

Grover Norquist

This time there is money for promoting that this idea might happen someday.feedback

Dai Wei

Our mission is to solve the 'last mile' transportation problem in urban areas and we see immense potential in the U.S. for Ofo's convenient, affordable and low-carbon way of travel.feedback

Rui Chammas

Our company sees this program very positively. It could mark a relevant change in how ethanol is valued, recognizing positive aspects such as the low carbon footprint.feedback

Sadiq Khan

I committed to a not-for-profit energy company in my manifesto and my officers are taking this forward as part of the early work of Energy for Londoners. It is potentially a significant undertaking and so rigorous feasibility and business modelling will be carried out to determine the most appropriate structure and functions of the company in order to achieve the overarching objectives of reducing carbon dioxide emissions and alleviating fuel poverty in London.feedback

Caroline Russell

Despite the mayor telling me it was 'the idea' for Energy for Londoners to be fully licensed, this doesn't seem to be the case. A publicly-owned Energy for Londoners was a brilliant opportunity to make a real difference to Londoners, providing residents, schools, hospitals and businesses with affordable, low-carbon energy.feedback

Hannah McKinnon - Oil Change International

This is uncharacteristically irrational behaviour for Norway. The Paris climate goals mean the world has to stay within a finite carbon budget. Norway's current plans for fossil fuel production, expansion, and exploration are dangerously out of line with these budgets. Norway can't be a climate leader at the same time as depending on new oil and gas production.feedback

Bianca Moebius-Clune

We won't change the modeling, just how we talk about it – there are a lot of benefits to putting carbon back in the sail [sic], climate mitigation is just one of them.feedback

Amanda Knox

When I was on trial for murder in Italy, the media tried to paint me as a 'femme fatale'. So it was with a sickening sense of déjà vu that I watched the prosecution attempt the same trick with (Michelle) Carter. Carter may not be innocent in a moral or philosophical sense, but she was wrongfully convicted. It's hard to feel sympathy for Carter, who was wrong to instruct Roy over the phone to get back into the truck in which he was poisoning himself with carbon monoxide.feedback

Randy Tinsmith - The Boeing Company

This wasn't a joy ride. It was an 18 hour… flight test for a 787-8 with GE engines. Our team coordinated with the many air traffic control centers, choosing the routing to avoid restricted airspace.feedback

Jakob Vinther

It had this dense armour on its back – it would have looked almost like a pineapple, with dense angular horns. On its neck and over its shoulders it had extremely long horns, even the face was covered in armour. We could see that the organic compounds [in the film] were something that contained carbon, nitrogen and sulphur – that is something that we know is typical for [the pigment] red melanin.feedback

Robert Hazen - Carnegie

They are using vast amounts of data and make correlations that you could never make.feedback

Adrian Raftery

Countries need to change the economic incentives for producing carbon – for example by introducing a carbon tax – and encourage innovation that would improve energy efficiency. We should be learning more from countries that are particularly carbon-efficient, like France, which has a very low-carbon transport infrastructure.feedback

Chris Huntingford

If given just one word to describe climate change, then 'unfairness' would be a good candidate. Raised levels of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere are expected to cause deadly heatwaves for much of South Asia. Yet many of those living there will have contributed little to climate change.feedback

Robert Hazen - Carnegie

Minerals occur on Earth in clusters. When you see minerals together it's very like the way that humans interact in social networks such as Facebook (NASDAQ:FB).feedback

Gideon Henderson

The last time we saw a permafrost melting was 130,000 years ago. It's a natural phenomenon because of changes in the earth's orbit. But what is definitely unprecedented is the rate of warming. The warming that happened 130,000 years ago happened over thousands of years … What we see happening now is warming over decades or a century. When (permafrosts) release carbon, it will accelerate the rate of warming in the future.feedback

Gilpin Robinson - U.S. Geological Survey

The use of large data sets and analytical tools is very important in our studies of mineral and energy resources.feedback

David Keith

If you want to be confident to get to 1.5 degrees you need to have solar geo-engineering. I don't think it's science fiction … to me it's normal atmospheric science.feedback

Paul Gatti - Royal Mail

Our research has shown that electric vans are a good operational fit with our business and we are delighted to be ordering such a large volume to use in our daily operations. This is good news for our customers and the towns and cities which we serve. Emissions are an important issue for us at Royal Mail and we are continuously looking at new and innovative ways to reduce our carbon footprint and our impact on air quality. Improving the efficiency of our fleet by introducing electric vans is just one example of this.feedback

Nick Akins - American Electric Power

There's a rebalancing of the generation resources, not only in our company but in this country that's going on. There's no doubt that there's the expectation to move to that cleaner energy economy, and an opportunity for us to rebalance our fleet, which has historically been predominantly coal. If you look at the carbon reductions associated with that, our carbon has been reduced over 40 percent since 2005 as a result.feedback

Anders Damgaard

In the last 12 months we have made a big effort to find out the data and the method to measure the carbon emissions in our stock portfolio. I hope we'll be done this year.feedback

Dan Reicher

Each additional increment of carbon reduction is tougher than the previous one.feedback

Kate Sears

This lawsuit is intended to shift those costs back where they belong – on the fossil fuel companies.feedback

Deborah Halberstadt

The rate of ice loss from the Greenland and Antarctic ice sheets could rapidly accelerate, leading to extreme sea-level rise, [...] with potentially catastrophic impacts for California.feedback

Dave Pine

We are at the point of no return in fighting climate change, and if we don't reduce emissions there will be catastrophic impacts.feedback

Jeremy Leggett - Solarcentury

This kind of litigation is a vital tool in the spreading effort to force oil companies to change their business models. No company has admitted the game is up yet. Some have taken out substantial hedged bets in the form of significant investments in clean energy, notably Total and Statoil. Others have dug in, seemingly for a fight to the death.feedback

Kelly Mitchell - Greenpeace

The bottom line, is that these companies are clinging to an outdated business model that is not compatible with a safe climate and liveable communities.feedback

Raymond Pierrehumbert

Carbon dioxide removal is challenging technologically, but deserves investment and trial.feedback

Janos Pasztor - United Nations

We're in trouble. The question is not whether or not there will be an overshoot but by how many degrees and for how many decades.feedback

Chris Field - Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change

Relying on big future deployments of carbon removal technologies is like eating lots of dessert today, with great hopes for liposuction tomorrow.feedback

Nina Skorupska

It shows real progress that there were nearly 126,000 jobs in renewable energy in 2015/16. This is in addition to over 16,000 in energy storage and in electric vehicles, which is the first year we have reported on these sectors. What is deeply frustrating is that this growth could have been greater. Policy instability in Westminster has slowed growth. Our member companies are helping build a system that is reliable, low-carbon and more affordable than the previous one.feedback

Scott Pruitt

Human activity [is not the] primary contributor to the global warming that we see.feedback

Sam Gardner - World Wide Fund for Nature

The first six months of 2017 have certainly been incredible for renewables, with wind turbines alone helping to ensure millions of tonnes of climate-damaging carbon emissions were avoided. Scotland is continuing to break records on renewable electricity, attracting investment, creating jobs and tackling climate change. If we want to reap the same rewards in the transport and heating sectors we need the Scottish Government to put in place strong policies on energy efficiency and transport in the forthcoming Climate Change Bill.feedback

Philip Nelson - Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council

Batteries will form a cornerstone of a low carbon economy, whether in cars, aircraft, consumer electronics, district or grid storage. To deliver the UK's low-carbon economy we must consolidate and grow our capabilities in novel battery technology.feedback

Michael Gove

It is because environmental degradation is such a threat to future prosperity and security that I deeply regret President Trump's approach towards the Paris Agreement on Climate Change. International co-operation to deal with climate change is critical if we're to safeguard our planet's future and the world's second biggest generator of carbon emissions can't simply walk out of the room when the heat is on.feedback

Max Warburton

Her letter contained some important statements that we believe show the industry's lobbyists have scored a big win. They have likely argued that castigating or banning diesel would harm the industry's earnings and employees, harm efforts to reduce carbon dioxide and harm owners of current vehicles.feedback

Michael Gove

International co-operation to deal with climate change is critical if we're to safeguard our planet's future and the world's second biggest generator of carbon emissions can't simply walk out of the room when the heat is on. It's our planet too and America needs to know we can only resolve this problem together.feedback

Seema Jayachandran

It's considerably cheaper than other ways of lowering carbon emissions. Putting dollars and cents on the benefits should be helpful in nudging the policy world.feedback

Scott Segal

The litigants misunderstand nuisance law. Commentators have suggested that nuisance law, a relative backwater in property law, is based upon conditions in which there are distinct producers and recipients of pollution. However, in the case of global climate change, a molecule of carbon is literally around the world in seven days. The requisite causation needed for nuisance suits is missing and unprovable.feedback

John Kelly

Certainly, if someone thinks they can hang solar panels on there and reduce the carbon emissions and sell energy both to Mexico and the United States and it benefits everybody, sounds like a good idea to me.feedback

James Hansen

Some consequences [of climate change] are already becoming inevitable, but as yet it could be moderate if we begin to reduce emissions rapidly. So that's the objective – to try to get the global community to understand the importance of beginning those emissions reductions soon, and keeping the task that we're leaving for young people one that they can manage.feedback

Cristian Proistosescu

But that would be the wrong way to think about it. The more important point is that we cannot rule out the very real probability that there are slow feedbacks – and risk is probability times cost. … Once you start thinking in terms of risks I would concur with Dr. Hansen that the current trajectory presents some unacceptable risks.feedback

Dorothy Thompson

We believe we are creating interesting options for our coal units to either be increased renewable generation or flexible gas generation to support a low-carbon future.feedback

Iain Staffell

If the last mines shut, we would be possibly the first major industrial country to leave carbon resources in the ground, unburnt. Admittedly, you'd say it was obvious because what we've got left is uncompetitive because we've got deep seams.feedback

Giles Redpath - Hive Energy

This subsidy free solar farm will generate a level of renewable energy which will make a significant contribution towards meeting national renewable energy targets and will help to increase the security of the UK's energy supply. The project will also deliver positive social benefits for local people and support the development of innovative energy saving technology.feedback

Feike Sijbesma

I would even say to companies: If you don't want to create your own 'Kodak moment', and if you want to future proof your business, I'd rather stimulate companies to put a price on carbon internally already, right now, like we do.feedback

Donald J. Trump

Even if one country – although be it big – is stepping out of this … We will implement Paris and we have to. And I think many companies are investing in the 'green stuff' already today.feedback

Feike Sijbesma

More than 5,000 companies in China will fall under the carbon pricing regime by the year end.feedback

Michael Tanner - Cato Institute

We should be careful of the illusion of bipartisan agreement on the issue, even among its advocates. Free market advocates see the UBI as a replacement for the existing welfare state. Many on the left call for a UBI as an additional benefit on top of existing programs, funded through new taxes on carbon, natural resources, businesses, or 'the rich.' Bridging those differences will likely be much harder than advocates on both sides may believe.feedback

Jackie Trad

But we acknowledge that we need to work on transitioning our economy, and one of the things that we need to understand and know is that the global thermal coal markets will change, they will fluctuate, but they are on a general trajectory downwards in terms of relying on coal. This is an enormous challenge and Queensland does emit a lot of carbon emissions, carbon pollution.feedback

Barry Gardiner

Yes, something could happen'! The American president could come to his senses and realize that he has just thrown away the opportunity for the U.S.A. to lead the technological revolution that is about to usher in a zero-carbon economy.feedback

James Christensen

The ratio between oxygen and carbon dioxide will change as I become more and more fatigued. That's important because as I'm fatigued, it takes about 24 hours for me to actually recover 100 percent. That fatigue is important because my muscles can't strain to push the blood back to my head and so the probability of me losing consciousness increases significantly.feedback

Katie Dykes

Power sector carbon pollution in the RGGI states has declined significantly faster than in the nation as a whole, while independent reports have found that RGGI is creating jobs and generating economic benefits.feedback

Hannah Martin - Greenpeace

Dieter has a well-known preference for gas and has historically failed to grasp the full potential of renewables. At a time when the costs of offshore wind and solar are plummeting this review needs somebody with the vision to grasp the opportunities offered by clean energy to provide jobs, lower bills and slash carbon pollution.feedback

Kimberley Nicholas

In life, there are many values on which people make decisions and carbon is only one of them. I don't have children, but it is a choice I am considering and discussing with my fiance. Because we care so much about climate change that will certainly be one factor we consider in the decision, but it won't be the only one.feedback

Julie Girling

It is sensible that we extend the exemption for international flights to and from the EU until there is greater clarity on the ICAO scheme. However, unlike the European Commission, I believe this exemption must be time limited so that we can be sure that the CORSIA (Carbon Offsetting and Reduction Scheme for International Aviation) will deliver its objectives.feedback

Peter Hinchliffe

We don't yet have a hydrogen-powered ship but I expect experimentation to take place. Our holy grail is to find a carbon-free fuel but there isn't one at the moment. I would hope that by 2030 we will have a very clear indication of what the fuel is likely to be.feedback

Imogen Zethoven - Marine Conservation Society

Last week the Australian government bragged that the Great Barrier Reef was not put on the in-danger list at this meeting. However, this week the Australian government should be worried. It knows very well that it is still on probation with the world heritage committee. This decision means Australia needs to rapidly reduce carbon pollution and reject new coalmines – otherwise our reef is at great risk of being placed on the world heritage in-danger list in 2020.feedback

This marks the first step in what I expect to be the deployment of hundreds of wind turbines off Virginia's coast that will further diversify our energy production portfolio, create thousands of jobs, and reduce carbon emissions in the Commonwealth. Hampton Roads has the ideal port assets and talented workforce to attract and house the offshore wind business supply chain to support not only Virginia's commercial wind area, but also wind farms under development in Massachusetts, New York, and Maryland.feedback

Greg Jericho

They stink. And as every report since June 2014 has shown, the end of the carbon price has led to an increase in emissions. . Whatever else you want to say about the Direct Action plan of the government, it has utterly failed to reduce greenhouse gas emissions.feedback

Evelyn Mervine - De Beers

Since the 2015 Paris Agreement on climate change, there has been a huge jump in carbon pricing schemes. What's clear is there will be carbon pricing by 2030s - it will be a cost of doing business.feedback

Pablo Atuesta Pradilla

A tree is always more efficient for compensating carbon footprint. But since we don't have enough space in the city to plant so many trees, we have to use unused space like walls and roofs to be able to compensate, so these solutions of having vertical gardens and having green roofs are great.feedback

Nicolas Hulot

One of the symbolic acts of the plan is that France, which previously had made the promise to divide its greenhouse gas emissions by four by 2050, has decided to become carbon neutral by 2050 following the U.S. decision. We want to demonstrate that fighting against climate change can lead to an improvement of French people's daily lives.feedback

Nicolas Hulot

In that spirit and putting into action what was announced by the president when the United States announced its position regarding the Paris agreement, our objective will be to become carbon neutral by 2050.feedback

Tim Rotheray

The economy depends on competitive business. Those businesses need to decarbonise cost effectively to remain competitive in the future. Today's report provides Government with a clear answer on how to support industrial competitiveness and deliver a significant carbon reduction. By installing CHP, thousands of businesses across the UK could help lighten the load of the cost of the energy transition while delivering much needed new capacity, helping to balance the grid and reduce network investment costs.feedback

Savita Vaidhyanathan

Mind-blowing, mind-blowing, mind-blowing. I saw the underground 1,000-seat theater and the carbon-fiber roof. The roof was made in Dubai, and it was transported and assembled here. I love that it's here and that I can brag about it.feedback

Fatih Birol - International Energy Agency

The volumes of oil consumed and carbon emissions given out by these vehicles is huge, but policy attention has been very little.feedback

Michael R. Bloomberg

Climate change presents global markets with risks and opportunities that cannot be ignored, which is why a framework around climate-related disclosures is so important. The Task Force brings that framework to the table, helping investors evaluate the potential risks and rewards of a transition to a lower carbon economy. We're pleased to see so many businesses and investors around the world support the recommendations of the TCFD and hope others will be encouraged to join our initiative.feedback

Kouichi Yamamoto

By 2050, we don't aim to lower carbon, but we aim to exit from carbon. Carbon pricing is the most efficient tool to help us achieve the 2050 goal.feedback

Kouichi Yamamoto

We are not saying that we should implement carbon pricing, but we are saying we should talk and think about how Japan can come up with our own model based on other countries' experiences.feedback

Kouichi Yamamoto

The Kyoto Protocol was mainly to enhance developed countries to combat global warming, but the Paris climate pact is for all countries and underlines a big advancement. Therefore, the U.S. withdrawal this time has a much bigger implication than that from the Kyoto Protocol.feedback

Kouichi Yamamoto

It doesn't matter if they are highly efficient or not, power stations using coal are seen outdated as EU (European Union) and other countries are moving away from them. We are against coal-fired power plants, but the issue isn't whether we are for or against it, but that there may come a time when they will no longer be accepted by the world at large. If all those plants are built, it will become a major obstacle for Japan's 2030 target to cut emissions.feedback

Richard Black

Unless ministers get on with setting new decarbonisation policies for the power sector, heating and transport, progress will stall and the UK will lose its leadership position. Investors are ready and willing to put money into Britain's low-carbon future – they just need clear, unequivocal signals from Government. And given the economic benefits of decarbonisation, one might ask – what are ministers waiting for?feedback

Emma Herd

Boards need a plan for managing climate change risks and opportunities that shareholders can see. Having a globally consistent framework for reporting on material climate change risks will accelerate this trend.feedback

Christian Thimann - AXA Group

We of course have an intrinsic interest in the world fighting against climate change. We see the frequency and intensity of natural disasters linked to climate change augmenting every year. We consider a world of plus two degrees may still be insurable but a world of plus four degrees might not be.feedback

Philippe Defosses

The more companies report effectively on climate related risks and opportunities, the easier it becomes for investors to allocate the substantial amounts of capital required to implement the Paris Agreement and to work on their own climate risk disclosure. There should be no resistance to the widespread adoption on the TCFD's recommendations given how – in most G20 countries – companies already have legal obligations to disclose material risks in their routine financial filings, including those that related to climate change.feedback

Christian Thimann - AXA Group

They too can use these recommendations because they will need to steer their lending between sectors aligned with a 2-degree world and sectors not aligned. They need to know which are the sectors with a high risk of stranded assets in the future and those with a low risk of stranded assets in the future.feedback

Pieter Tans

If emissions were to stay flat for the next two decades, which could be called an achievement in some sense, it's terrible for the climate problem.feedback

Pieter Tans

It's really bare bones, our network, contrary to common misperceptions about the government wasting money.feedback

Wang Yi

I'd estimate that we are about at the emissions peak, or if there are further rises, they won't be much.feedback

Jim Skea

It's this gap on things like energy efficiency and a heat policy – that's the real thing that will hold back investment and grow the uncertainty.feedback

Jim Skea

If we're going to keep on track [with binding carbon targets] there is an urgent need to get that published.feedback

Louise Kingham

The mood among our members is that energy policy is on pause and ministers need to hit the play button.feedback

Richard Howard

The Government needs to recognise the fiscal implications of cleaning up road transport. Our analysis suggests that if carbon targets are met, fuel duty receipts could be £9bn-£23bn lower in 2030 than the Government is currently assuming.feedback

Wang Yi

It's a really complicated task. That's precisely why China must work on this in a steady way and mustn't fail. If China's carbon market fails, that will be a big blow not just to China but also to global carbon markets.feedback

Wang Yi

Carbon trading on a national scale will send a signal to the world that China is serious about this.feedback

Dan J. Dudek

Every ton of emissions that's going up the stack becomes potentially money lost. It changes people's minds about what was once fundamentally free.feedback

Huw Slater

You start to create vested interests in local government, in industry associations and in other parts of the private sector for more accurate data. In China, you can't really wait until you've got perfect data, because it will never happen.feedback

Julienne Stroeve

Given our current emission rates of 35 to 40 gigatons [of carbon dioxide] per year we should see ice-free conditions in September in about 20 years.feedback

Wolfgang Cramer

More carbon dioxide in the atmosphere means rising temperatures, less precipitation and then more drying that leads to desertification.feedback

Stian Reklev

It's a good idea to start with a narrow range of sectors, even if that wasn't the original plan. It's still going to be a massive challenge to make it work. Anyone who thinks that the Chinese scheme will be effective in making big cuts in emissions from the start is going to be disappointed.feedback

Zhang Xiliang

A successful start of a carbon market will greatly enhance China's international standing in responding to climate change.feedback

Brad Pitt

Carbon dioxide is slowing turning our planet into an uninhabitable wasteland, and half the population doesn't believe it.feedback

Elon Musk - Tesla Motors

It is a little cold, but we can warm it up. It has a very helpful atmosphere, which, being primarily carbon dioxide with some nitrogen and argon and a few other trace elements, means that we can grow plants on Mars just by compressing the atmosphere. It would be quite fun to be on Mars because you would have gravity that is about 37 per cent of that of Earth, so you would be able to lift heavy things and bound around.feedback

Tristan Edis

A coal plant makes no sense in Victoria and South Australia because they have poor-quality coal that would mean the power plant had very high carbon emissions not much better than existing coal plants in NSW and Queensland.feedback

Evan Mills

The sad irony is that legalization is probably the only avenue for solving the problem, if only policymakers would confront it. Until then, some of the nation's hard-earned progress towards climate change solutions is on the chopping block as regulators continue to ignore this industry's mushrooming carbon footprint.feedback

Jeff Mathis

That's the most important part of it for me. You want to hit and do things offensively to help the team out, but what I've enjoyed over the years is working with pitchers, trying to understand them and get them where they need to be.feedback

Mike Hazen

Their reputation preceded them for what they've brought to teams. So when we changed the direction on the model that we were looking at, on how to put that catching situation together, those guys stood out to us. When we got to spring training, everybody was talking about velocity – but Zack's never been an elite velocity guy. He's been one of the best command pitchers in baseball for the entirety of his career. And he's as smart as everybody says he is.feedback

Torey Lovullo

The traditions of baseball are changing. You don't see a Johnny Bench or Ivan Rodriguez catching 150 games, or in more modern times, a Salvador Perez or Yadier Molina. They're still there, but I think it's spreading itself out now, because it's such a heavy workload and we believe in rest.feedback

Robbie Ray

If guys are on the heater with guys on base or something, you want to go, go, go, go. The curveball allows me to kind of back off a little bit.feedback

Archie Bradley

You can go into pitch framing and all the stuff they do really well, but it starts, at least for me, with the relationship. All three guys, Iannetta, Mathis and Herrmann, they understand us, man. They understand the way our balls move, they understand where we like them to set up, everything. When we step on the mound, there's no doubt.feedback

Chris Iannetta

It took Ubaldo about a year to really get a feel of it, and that's kind of the path that Tai's been on. His ability to command the zone and really being able to use that slider has given him a huge advantage.feedback

Mark R. Tercek

Climate change is already impacting our communities, our economy and our environment and those impacts will continue to grow and become worse if we don't act now. We can't afford to wait to have these conversations.feedback

Naomi Ages - Greenpeace

ExxonMobil will try to dress this up as climate activism, but its key agenda is protecting executives from legal accountability for climate pollution and fraud. A nicely worded public relations exercise is no cure for decades of deception.feedback

Larry Summers

There is a reasonable shot that there will be an opening that will be taken in the next several years. It's hard to argue against a fuel tax that Exxon's in favor of.feedback

Michael B. Gerrard

None of those has gotten very far," but "there continues to be talk of more. If a sufficiently high carbon tax were imposed, it could accomplish a lot more for fighting climate change than liability suits.feedback
