Quotes about Global Warming

We might be more inclined to think about the longer term if we were more aware of what is happening around us. Perhaps daily weather forecasts could include a few basic facts about the Earth’s vital signs or details of where climate change is increasing the likelihood of damaging weather?
Prince Charles

Forests … are in fact the world’s air-conditioning system-the very lungs of the planet-and help to store the largest body of freshwater on the planet … essential to produce food for our planet’s growing population. The rainforests of the world also provide the livelihoods of more than a billion of the poorest people on this Earth… In simple terms, the rainforests, which encircle the world, are our very life-support system-and we are on the verge of switching it off.
Prince Charles

It is baffling, I must say, that in our modern world we have such blind trust in science and technology that we all accept what science tells us about everything – until, that is, it comes to climate science.
Prince Charles

We can halt the destruction of the world’s rainforests – and even restore parts of them – in order to ensure that the forests do what they are so good at – in other words, storing carbon naturally.
Prince Charles

We need to be realistic. There is very little we can do now to stop the ice from disappearing from the North Pole in the summer. And we probably cannot prevent the melting of the permafrost and the resulting release of methane. In addition, I fear that we may be too late to help the oceans maintain their ability to absorb carbon dioxide.
Prince Charles

There is an overabundance of rational reasons to say no to factory-farmed meat: It is the No. 1 cause of global warming, it systematically forces tens of billions of animals to suffer in ways that would be illegal if they were dogs, it is a decisive factor in the development of swine and avian flus, and so on.
Jonathan Safran Foer

What is stopping us from becoming energy efficient and eco-friendly? Humanity’s own idiocy. Yes, we are idiots. Why? Because we are limiting ourselves on the ‘fact’ that to produce this and that en mass is not ‘affordable’. We can’t ‘afford’ to use solar power indefinitely, we can’t ‘afford’ to not murder all life on earth. This is one of the many and dangerous flaws in humanity. We put the ‘need’ for gold, only a dense metal, over the fact that we are exterminating hundreds of species and back-stabbing the organisms that make our very existence even plausible. We are literally killing ourselves through our careless actions. If we don’t change, and I’m talking about some major changes, we will end life on earth. We will be the meteor that ends the Holocene era, and the end of all life on earth.
I’m not an animal activist. I’m not here to say we have to go back to living in caves. I just want my future family to be able to continue growing after I die. I want the human race to exist on earth and stretch out to the stars.
I don’t want us to go extinct.

You see all those other planets through your telescope, they don’t have anything living on them. They really are just balls of gas or rock or ice. But our world is special. Our world had the necessary conditions, and just the right amount of luck to allow life to exist. That life is us, and everything else on this planet that lives. But we are the end of it all. We are the end of life on this lucky, one in a million ball of rock.

Preservation of our environment is not a liberal or conservative challenge, it’s common sense.
Ronald Reagan

The good news is we know what to do. The good news is, we have everything we need now to respond to the challenge of global warming. We have all the technologies we need, more are being developed, and as they become available and become more affordable when produced in scale, they will make it easier to respond. But we should not wait, we cannot wait, we must not wait.
– Al Gore

Global warming – at least the modern nightmare vision – is a myth. I am sure of it and so are a growing number of scientists. But what is really worrying is that the world’s politicians and policy makers are not.

Yes, there is still much about global warming we have to learn and research should continue. But the longer we delay, the more CO2 will build up in the atmosphere. It stays there a long time. If we wait too long before acting, we will pass a point of no return and lock ourselves into centuries of global warming. We could pass one of those dangerous tipping points that could make life very difficult. It’s a risk we shouldn’t take.

I don’t mean to imply that we are in imminent danger of being wiped off the face of the earth – at least, not on account of global warming. But climate change does confront us with profound new realities. We face these new realities as a nation, as members of the world community, as consumers, as producers, and as investors. And unless we do a better job of adjusting to these new realities, we will pay a heavy price. We may not suffer the fate of the dinosaurs. But there will be a toll on our environment and on our economy, and the toll will rise higher with each new generation.

All across the world, in every kind of environment and region known to man, increasingly dangerous weather patterns and devastating storms are abruptly putting an end to the long-running debate over whether or not climate change is real. Not only is it real, it’s here, and its effects are giving rise to a frighteningly new global phenomenon: the man-made natural disaster.
Barack Obama

Global warming is too serious for the world any longer to ignore its danger or split into opposing factions on it.
– Tony Blair

As best as can be determined, the world is now warmer than it has been at any point in the last two millennia, and, if current trends continue, by the end of the century it will likely be hotter than at any point in the last two million years.

Some countries of the world are like people fighting on a large boat. In the middle of their battle over how to catch the biggest fish, they look up and realize that the fine boat is sinking, and everyone is going down. Their next fight will be for basic survival, and they will need to rely on one another, floating far from shore in the angry sea.

Planting and growing increasing quantities of trees is the scientific solution to Earth’s environmental dilemma.

To be in denial is worse than ignorance, not caring is immoral.

We’re in a giant car heading toward a brick wall and everyone’s arguing over where they’re going to sit.

If we don’t take the action today, tomorrow will be the End.
Let us be awake and fight back against global warming

It is upsetting that many people don’t seem to observe what’s happening to the environment, what’s happening in terms of global warming, the loss of habitats and wild things.

This is the moment when we must come together to save this planet. Let us resolve that we will not leave our children a world where the oceans rise and famine spreads and terrible storms devastate our lands.
– Barack Obama

Global warming is not just the greatest environmental challenge facing our planet – it is one of our greatest challenges of any kind.
Barack Obama

All across the world, …increasingly dangerous weather patterns and devastating storms are abruptly putting an end to the long-running debate over whether or not climate change is real. Not only is it real, it’s here, and its effects are giving rise to a frighteningly new global phenomenon: the man-made natural disaster.
Barack Obama

Global warming is no longer a philosophical threat, no longer a future threat, no longer a threat at all. It’s our reality.

Climate change is not just another issue. It is the issue that, unchecked, will swamp all other issues. The only hope lies in all the countries of the world coming together around a common global project to rewire the world with clean energy. This is a path to peace – peace among people, and peace between people and nature.

We should not be drilling for oil anywhere because burning oil and coal and natural gas is what’s destroying our environment, our climate. And we need the climate if we’re going to eat.

Global warming is a matter of national security. Will we live in a world where we must fight our neighbors for fresh water and food? Or will we take the lead now and leave to our children and grandchildren a world better off than the one we inherited from our parents?

Man has been endowed with reason, with the power to create, so that he can add to what he’s been given. But up to now he hasn’t been a creator, only a destroyer. Forests keep disappearing, rivers dry up, wild life’s become extinct, the climate’s ruined and the land grows poorer and uglier every day.
