Carbon Quotes - II

1. I think it's harder for people than it should be. But as more and more of us become carbon neutral and change the patterns in our lives to be part of the solution instead of part of the problem, we are now beginning to see the changes in policy that are needed. - Al Gore

2. There are skeptics who do not come to their view because they have a source of income from carbon polluters. - Al Gore

3. Just as human activity is upsetting Earth's carbon cycle, our actions are altering the water cycle. - David Suzuki

4. Many scientists and economists also say putting a price on carbon through carbon taxes and/or cap-and-trade is necessary. - David Suzuki

5. The struggle against poverty in the world and the challenge of cutting wealthy country emissions all has a single, very simple solution... Here it is: Put a price on carbon. - Al Gore

6. Cities can be the engine of social equity and economic opportunity. They can help us reduce our carbon footprint and protect the global environment. That is why it is so important that we work together to build the capacity of mayors and all those concerned in planning and running sustainable cities. - Ban Ki-moon

7. We have to ensure politically that what's doable can indeed by translated into law, but what's not doable mustn't become European law. Otherwise, the auto industry will work somewhere with higher carbon emissions - and we can't want that. - Angela Merkel

8. One of the more fantastic possibilities is that man will be able to make biological carbon copies of himself. - Alvin Toffler

10. 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

11. We seriously have to question the motivation of those people referred to as climate change sceptics, who are denying the evidence of human-caused climate change and preventing us from moving forward by spreading disinformation and supporting unchecked carbon pollution. - Kofi Annan.

Nothing is better than reading and gaining more and more knowledge - Stephen William Hawking.
