Greenhouse gases


Last quote about Greenhouse gases

Leonardo DiCaprio
Livestock production is a major contributor to carbon emissions. Shifting from animal meat to the plant-based meats developed by Beyond Meat is one of the most powerful measures someone can take to reduce their impact on our climate. The company's ability to create appealing, healthy meat directly from plants will go a long way in helping every day consumers take action on climate

Ideally we'd have a national plan to help guide cities toward some basic level of planning to address these risks. If we don't see that leadership, cities will have to look to other cities to figure out where to go next. We also need to mitigate our greenhouse gases to reduce the impact in the first

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

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

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

Alan Robock

We all agree that climate change is real and that the solution is to reduce the emissions of the gases that cause global warming. The Paris Agreement was a good start, but those pledges aren't enough, and we have to reduce more. Even then it [won't be] fast enough. So what we're looking at is: If global warming is so dangerous, could we shave off a little warming while we continue to mitigate greenhouse gases?feedback

W. Mote

If you could wind the clock back 100 years and we hadn't been emitting greenhouse gases for those 100 years, we could still be having a heat wave right now. It's just that the high temperatures, instead of being 105, 106, they would be a couple of degrees lower. We'd be breaking fewer records without the greenhouse

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

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

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

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

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

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

Terry McAuliffe

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

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

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

Bob Dudley - BP

While welcome, it is not yet clear how much of this break from the past is structural and will persist. We need to keep up our focus and efforts on reducing carbon emissions. BP supports the aims set out in the COP21 Paris meetings and is committed to playing our part to help achieve

Mark Butler

That's the plan. To get Josh [Frydenberg] to do all the hard work. Then lose and hand it over. Of course it's a price on carbon. It's not a direct price but there's clearly a shadow price. What this does is to give a price advantage to low-emissions technology. It seeks to shift the relative costs of different types of electricity generation based on their carbon

Mark Sutton - International Paper

We've made commitments publicly and we're working on those commitments, not only on greenhouse gases but water and other environmental

Jean-Pascal Tricoire - Schneider Electric

I spend a lot of time in the U.S., which is our largest market. When you meet cities, when you meet companies today, when you meet the states where a lot of those decisions have been made, people are committed to reduce carbon emissions. It's a question of business, it's a question of

Kate Gordon

There is no question that China will show leadership on climate, including putting a cap and trade system in place, investing in renewable energy, ramping down carbon emissions, ramping down coal. Those are all things they are committed to for environmental reasons, but also just for economic

Michael Tadeo

We have always said that Paris was a missed opportunity to talk about how the United States is leading the world in the production and refining of oil and natural gas, and leading the world in reducing carbon emissions. The United States is now near 30-year lows in carbon emissions from electricity generation. Instead of government mandates that could increase energy costs, the world should embrace our nation's energy renaissance that has lowered costs for consumers, benefitted American workers and improved the

Barack Obama

The Paris Agreement alone won't solve the climate crisis, but it does establish an enduring framework that enables countries to ratchet down their carbon emissions over time, and to set more ambitious targets as technology advances. That means full implementation of this agreement will help delay or avoid some of the worst consequences of climate change, and pave the way for more progress in the coming

Nick Akins - American Electric Power

Specific customers are looking specifically for renewables and to what degree you are moving toward a new clean energy economy. Shareholders are more interested in sustainability going forward and improvements from a climate change perspective and carbon emissions perspective. We are trying to make our company long-term sustainable regardless of

Lyndon Schneiders

Deforestation and land clearing has a double impact on climate change. The trees can no longer draw carbon pollution out of the air and they also release carbon and other greenhouse gases into the atmosphere as they are burnt or

Angela Richards Dona

In the US our reefs are worth a huge amount but I don't know if people realize that, more attention would not hurt. There are places in the world that have lost a tremendous amount of coral and we have the same prognosis if we continue to burn fossil fuels in the way we are doing. We need to cut our carbon emissions because the corals just can't handle

Tim Seelig

While we do not believe any new coal mines, including the Adani mine, should proceed given global warming trends and the imperative of carbon emissions reduction, we still welcome these announcements. We thank Deputy Premier Jackie Trad for holding the line on this matter, and we thank the Palaszczuk Cabinet and government for locking in on a better final position. Two and a half years and a week full of crisis meetings, three cabinet meetings, two held late at night and we're still no closer to a deal. I wouldn't be surprised if Adani say this is all too

Terry McAuliffe

Today, I am proud to take executive action to cut greenhouse gases and make Virginia a leader in the global clean energy economy. The threat of climate change is real, and we have a shared responsibility to confront it. Once approved, this regulation will reduce carbon dioxide emissions from the Commonwealth's power plants and give rise to the next generation of energy jobs. As the federal government abdicates its role on this important issue, it is critical for states to fill the void. Beginning today, Virginia will lead the way to cut carbon and lean in on the clean energy

Maya Anjur-Dietrich

Across multiple agency websites, we have seen a reduction in usage of terms like 'climate change' and 'greenhouse gases', and an overall reduction in access to information pertaining to climate change. In a few cases, we have also observed shifts in economy- and business-oriented language, where the descriptions of the office focuses have increased their mentions of helping to grow infrastructure, create jobs, and stimulate the

Pierre Borjesson - Hennes & Mauritz

Using less energy and increasing our economic output is a fundamental part of our strategy. We have long been working to reduce our climate impact and recently launched our new commitment to achieve a climate positive value chain by 2040. This means H&M will support reductions of greenhouse gases to a larger extent than what our value chain emits. Two of our key priorities are leadership in energy productivity and using renewable energy throughout the value

Evelyn Mervine - De Beers

This project offers huge potential to completely offset the carbon emissions of De Beers´ diamond mining

Michael R. Bloomberg

Even if [Trump] doesn't change his mind, it's the private sector that has reduced greenhouse gases. We are two-thirds of the way already towards the targets for 2025 without any help from the federal government. So we're going to make this

Chong Zhi Xin - Wood Mackenzie

It's all about really moving away from dirty fossil fuels and into clean renewable energy. So if we look in the past, a lot of base load power really came from coal as well as oil, and we're looking at a future where you're looking at zero carbon emissions from solar, from wind. But in order to get there it is difficult today, you can't completely switch your industries to using renewables. And that's where gas really comes in as a bridging fuel: it is clean, and it can provide base load

Phil Renforth

We are going to have think about ways of not just limiting carbon emissions but of actually removing greenhouse gases from the atmosphere and it may well be that technology based on slag leftovers from the steel industry could play a key

Neelam Manjunath

Bamboo's use in infrastructure projects will reduce carbon emissions considerably without compromising on development. People don't die because of disasters, but because of buildings collapsing on them. Bamboo buildings are lighter and don't cause fatalities. Because of their sheer strength, bamboo buildings are also serviceable for much longer in the face of volatile

Carlos Curbelo

The world's leading nations must work together to not only reduce the impact carbon emissions have on climate change, but also mitigate and prepare for the effects, which communities like ours are dealing with every day. It's our hope the administration will take a responsible approach on this

Robin Chase

If we share rides in shared cars, we will only need 10 percent of the cars we have today. We have the ability to eliminate congestion, transform the livability of cities, make it possible to travel quickly and safely from A to B for the price of a bus ticket, improve the quality of our air, and make a significant dent in reducing carbon-dioxide

The combined impact of this back-to-back bleaching stretches for [900 miles], leaving only the southern third unscathed. As temperatures continue to rise the corals will experience more and more of these events. One degree Celsius of warming so far has already caused four events in the past 19 years. Ultimately, we need to cut carbon emissions, and the window to do so is rapidly

Terry Hughes

The bleaching is caused by record-breaking temperatures driven by global warming. This year, 2017, we are seeing mass bleaching, even without the assistance of El Nino conditions. Clearly the reef is struggling with multiple impacts. Without a doubt the most pressing of these is global warming. As temperatures continue to rise the corals will experience more and more of these events. One degree Celsius of warming so far has already caused four events in the past 19 years. Ultimately, we need to cut carbon emissions, and the window to do so is rapidly

Ultimately, we need to cut carbon emissions, and the window to do so is rapidly

Michael Howard

When John Major set up our global warming strategy, the doom-mongers said it would ruin living standards. New research shows how wrong they were. Just before the Rio Earth summit 25 years ago, John Major, in whose cabinet I then served as environment secretary, made a bold prediction: reducing Britain’s carbon emissions in line with recommendations of climate science would not, he said, harm our economy: “Our initial measures ... will bring a worthwhile economic payoff to the country, to business and to ordinary people.”.feedback

Todd Werpy

We are extremely proud to be part of this important program. The technology that we are using in Decatur can be a model for reducing industrial carbon emissions around the world. We're pleased to be working with great partners in the U.S. Department of Energy, Richland Community College and the University of Illinois - Illinois State Geological Survey, and we're excited to move forward as we not only reduce our carbon emissions in Decatur, but also contribute to important research that will help other companies do the

Bret Scheffers

I was not surprised. But I was alarmed. The extent of impacts is vast and has impacted every ecosystem on the Earth. Governments and large organisations can invest and commit to reducing carbon emissions and protecting natural ecosystems that increase resilience to climate change not only for nature but for people as well. These include large areas of connected forests which cool local and regional climate, pristine coral and oyster reefs that not only provide food but reduce storm surges, and well managed watersheds that will maintain adequate fresh

Lang Banks - World Wide Fund for Nature

Given this March wasn't as windy as it has been in some previous years, this year's record output shows the importance of continuing (to) increase capacity by building new wind farms. As well as helping to power our homes and businesses, wind power supports thousands of jobs and continues to play an important role in Scotland's efforts to address global climate change by avoiding millions of tonnes of carbon emissions every

Judith D Schwartz

In this time of reckless US action, it’s crucial to shift the narrative beyond despair over fossil fuels and look at water as a primary tool of climate control. It’s easy for all concerned about air, water and nature to descend into despair as we watch brazen rollbacks of environmental legislation in the US. Just last week, developments included an executive order to rewrite US carbon emissions rules, jeopardising the country’s ability to uphold its Paris climate talk commitment; the end of a moratorium on new coal leases; and the green-lighting of a pesticide claimed to cause harm to children. But as apathy is not an option, let’s try to think beyond the usual strategies. For one, we can recognise that the way we talk about our environmental challenges has interfered with our ability to truly grapple with them: that we limit ourselves by creating too simple a story. Specifically, the story we tell about

Anne Hidalgo

Cities produce 70 percent of greenhouse gases. Mayors are a very pragmatic people, we are very concrete people. In government, you're sometimes distant from reality, but we're close to everything, and that's a strength. When men and women mix together with very different experiences, you have a good result. We make things more open than when men work

Mark Buckley - Staples

We will continue to support the EPA's clean power plan and the reduction of carbon emissions associated with electrical power

Sarah Posner

President Trump on Tuesday signed an executive order rolling back the Clean Power Plan, former president Barack Obama’s 2015 policy aimed at reducing the carbon emissions that cause climate change. He touted this as a big step in restoring American jobs - in particular, coal mining jobs, which are concentrated in areas carried by Trump in the 2016

Yuhang Wang

Tommy Wells

We have many buildings with HVAC systems that are reaching their end-of-life cycles and that's a problem – 74 percent of all greenhouse gases in the city come from energy consumption of buildings. How do they get good, cheap, financing? With a green bank, we're in a position to fund major renovations with high-efficiency

Michael Oppenheimer - O'Neal

It sounds like an orchestrated campaign of head-in-the-sand. The scientific consensus is clear: Most of the warming since 1950 is the result of the buildup of the human-made greenhouse

Tuomas Riski

We are privileged and excited to be collaborating with Maersk Tankers, Shell, and the ETI on this project. We are optimistic that support for this trial from these industry leading organizations will open up the market for our technology to a larger number of long-range product tanker vessels – paving the way for ship fuel efficiencies, and ultimately reducing emissions, including greenhouse gases. As an abundant and free renewable energy, wind power has a role to play in supporting the shipping industry to reduce its fuel consumption and meet impending carbon reduction

Keith Seitter

The world's 7 billion people are causing climate to change and our emissions of carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gases are the primary cause. This is a conclusion based on the comprehensive assessment of scientific evidence. It is based on multiple independent lines of evidence that have been affirmed by thousands of independent scientists and numerous scientific institutions around the world. We are not familiar with any scientific institution with relevant subject matter expertise that has reached a different

It feels like this very technical thing about, blah blah, waivers, blah blah blah,' but it's a very important part of the climate policy. People aren't going to stop driving, really. And transportation's 40 percent of carbon emissions. The only way to get [those emissions] down is to get [fuel] mileage up. If the feds are going to take their foot off the gas–and to fight the states who are doing it–it could be a huge

This is the first experiment to investigate the long-term effects of warming in aquatic ecosystems. Given the substantial contribution small ponds make to the emission of greenhouse gases, it is vital to understand how they might respond to global warming. Our findings show that warming can fundamentally alter the carbon balance of small ponds over a number of years, reducing their capacity to absorb carbon dioxide and increasing emissions of

Spencer Dale - BP

The actual implications of change in U.S. policy are unlikely to be a big game changer. The U.S. has played an enormous leadership role together with China in galvanizing international support (for action on climate change) .... Much of that improvement in the outlook for carbon emissions isn't happening in America. Improvements within America are due to energy efficiency ... which are still quite valued in an economy that encourages growth and

Rick Perry

We truly advocated an all-of-the-above strategy, reducing carbon emissions not just through development of cleaner fossil fuels, but through the development of renewable sources

There is some data about what car sharing means. Household carbon emissions can be reduced by 37% through car-sharing and we know for example that there are 3.7 trillion pounds worth of idle resources in the world. So we have some idea about the kind of social and environmental impact this is creating, but actually in terms of putting a number on that social and environmental value is something that we need to do

Angela Merkel

We will announce at the conference in Paris that the global long-term goal is a reduction of at least 60 percent greenhouse gases compared to 2010. That would mean a global reduction of 50 percent compared to 1990. Yes, it is very ambitious. But we believe if we join forces we will be able to manage

Sébastien Pant

We have got a big conference on this coming up at the end of the year in Paris and it's very important we get the globally-binding agreement to reduce carbon emissions. We see the European Union is not doing enough. It could do more on energy security by becoming less reliant on Russia and improving energy

Marylyn Haines Evans

Nobody likes to waste energy, and at a time when energy bills are increasing, having appliances designed to be sparing with electricity is definitely a good thing for your household finances. Coffee is one of the many products threatened by climate change, so it's also good to know that when you're making a cup, you're doing your bit to cut down on carbon emissions

Duncan Green - Oxfam Intermón

At this moment of crisis everybody's spending huge amounts of money on their fiscal stimulus. This could be a moment when they actually say, we can't run the economy in the same way. We've got to run it on a fraction of the carbon emissions and it actually needs huge government
