Last quote about Carbon

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 power.feedback

Peter Kelemen

You can walk down these beautiful canyons and basically descend 20 kilometers (12 miles) into the earth's interior. Every single magnesium atom in these rocks has made friends with the carbon dioxide to form solid limestone, magnesium carbonate, plus quartz. There's about a billion tons of CO2 in this mountain. For a geologist this is supersonic. He hasn't responded to my messages yet.feedback

Arnout van Rijn

Across this region the landscape is beginning to change too, in part driven by the increasing awareness of the massive capital needed to finance the region's transition to a low-carbon future… In China there is a remarkably active interest for the topic among the large institutions.feedback

Ofer Aderet

First, Spicer's sweeping claim that even Hitler didn't sink to using chemical arms is just flat out wrong. In fact, Hitler used chemical weapons – gases such as carbon dioxide, carbon monoxide and Zyklon B – to kill more people than anyone in history. Second, Spicer's attempt to clarify his remark by saying that, unlike Assad, Hitler didn't gas his own people is also mistaken. Hitler killed more than 200,000 Germans – both Jews and non-Jews.feedback

Nicolette Bartlett

If you accept that society is going to deal with this problem, you want approaches you can understand, manage and work. Market-based approaches give you this.feedback

Charles Komanoff

We are 79 percent of the way to our 2030 goal. We'd be trading away a veteran player whose best days are behind him.feedback

Ted Halstead

Advocates are trying to convince their fellow citizens to make short-term sacrifices now for the benefit of other people, in other countries, in 40 years. It doesn't take into account human nature.feedback

Sallie Greenberg

The significance of this is it is an upscale, more industrial scale injection on the order of a million tons of carbon dioxide per year, so this is a big step forward in terms of the commercialization of carbon capture and storage. There are lot of researchers who are looking at life cycle analysis, and running those numbers, to make the case of whether it's net negative. I think it's probably about as close as you're going to get. But I think, really, for an answer to that, stay tuned, that's one of the research questions that we are all looking at quite closely.feedback

Jeff Erikson

This is the first large scale project in the world on biofuels, and it takes us down the road towards negative emissions, which is the exciting part.feedback

Doug Hollett - Fossil Energy

Today's announcement marks a major step forward for the advancement of industrial carbon capture and storage technologies.feedback

Timothy Searchinger

Because CCS benefits are independent, it should not be selectively used to dress up the benefits of one carbon emitting fuel versus another. Coal, gasoline, natural gas and bioenergy are precisely as good or as bad relative to each other as they are regardless of CCS.feedback

Mike Hawes

Euro 6 diesel cars on sale today are the cleanest in history. Not only have they drastically reduced or banished particulates, sulphur and carbon monoxide but they also emit vastly lower NOx than their older counterparts – a fact recognised by London in their exemption from the Ultra Low Emission Zone that will come into force in 2019. Some recent reports have failed to differentiate between these much cleaner cars and vehicles of the past. This is unfair and dismissive of progress made.feedback

Terry Hughes

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 closing.feedback

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 same.feedback

Tamzen Isacsson

Industry has invested billions into reducing emissions and has drastically reduced or banished pollutants such as particulates, sulphur and carbon monoxide, while the [latest] diesels are delivering vastly lower NO2 emissions.feedback

Lorraine Kakaza

Mining in South Africa has a negative impact on women. At the environmental level, the air that they breathe is polluted. The soil, it's no longer fertile, they can't plant, they can't do anything. They lose their loved ones at an early age due to the gasses – the carbon dioxide they inhale almost every day.feedback

Kristian Ruby

26 of 28 member states have stated that they will not invest in new coal plants after 2020. History will judge this message we are bringing here today. It is a clear message that speaks for itself, and should be seen in close relation to the Paris agreement and our commitment to provide 100 per cent carbon-neutral electricity by 2050. The challenge for policy makers in the next two years will be to target the political instruments, ensure that they are complementary and advance decarbonisation and electrification at the same time.feedback

Eric T. Schneiderman

The law is clear: the EPA must limit carbon pollution from power plants.feedback

Jeff Burleson

We don't know exactly what the future holds, but we hold a presumption that there will be a price on carbon on the horizon, either from legislation or regulation.feedback

Scott Pruitt

We've demonstrated through the steps we've taken already, the pre-1994 levels, because of that technology – we can burn coal in clean fashion.feedback

António Mexia

The power sector is determined to lead the energy transition and back our commitment to the low carbon economy with concrete action. With power supply becoming increasingly clean, electric technologies are an obvious choice for replacing fossil fuel based systems for instance in the transport sector to reduce greenhouse gas emissions.feedback

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 water.feedback

John S. Watson - Chevron

A carbon tax will have the effect of adding cost on the people who can least afford it. If you increase energy costs you are going to make it more difficult here for industrial activity. I'll buy a car that meets all my needs, particularly around size and other characteristics.feedback

Simon Evans

The sector is no longer the cash cow chancellors have come to expect over the past several decades. If [companies] are operating at a loss in the current year, they can claim a rebate on tax paid in previous years. This latter factor is likely to have been quite significant, given oil prices crashed to $30 by early 2016, only rising towards $50 by later in the year. [At these levels] they were probably operating at a loss and reclaiming tax.feedback

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 year.feedback

James Ellington

I was in agony for about a week. Literally, didn't sleep one night. Then I went to Princess Grace Hospital, where I had the pelvis surgery. They put a metal plate across my pelvis to bring it back together. I've got a carbon fibre rod in my leg. I'm just full of screws, metal and carbon fibre right now.feedback

Mihai Tomescu

The current level of effort needs to be stepped up and this is not necessarily going to happen without additional focus.feedback

Mihai Tomescu

In broad terms, we are talking about a substitution and this has an impact not only on import dependency but also avoided greenhouse gas emissions.feedback

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 climate.feedback

Don Wise

When we first went it, all the monitors went off. The time it would have taken for us to go back out and get our air packs in, we grabbed the patients and started pulling them out. I have never seen something like this in 30 years. Carbon monoxide is odorless, colorless, tasteless. You'll wind up getting flu-like symptoms, vomit, then go unresponsive, but there isn't much time between getting nauseous and going fully unconscious.feedback

Michael Gannon

We need to be cleverer and smarter about carbon abatement and the necessary changes in society to reduce the impacts of climate change. The necessary changes in changing our energy mix and reducing pollution will have victims and we just need to think about that. We just need a secure energy supply, and that does not for one minute diminish very clear AMA policy which is there. Every member that telephoned or emailed the AMA was responded to and they were pointed in the direction of our policy which talks about all of this – the need to reduce the carbon footprint of our society.feedback

Jim Millin

Officers quickly checked the airway of all involved to ensure they could breath, administered chest compressions to those in need and were able to get all the kids involved out of the building.feedback

Ted Thomas

When these things flip, when they become economic and people start throwing money at them, we want to be deploying–and not litigating policy for two or three years. The public policy that comes from most of the right is too into fossil fuels, mostly the sellers. I represent the buyers, who are the ratepayers. On the left, what you have are policies that are designed to control carbon but there's never any analysis or support that actually changes the temperature.feedback

Hassan Raza

A high cost penalty on emitted carbon is the only way this type of business can grow; otherwise what incentive would companies have to stop flaring? You penalize them and they will be forced to clean up their act. And that's where we come in.feedback

Amanda Mott

It was made clear to the students yesterday, as has been the case in the past, that the University would be happy to work with them to find additional ways to reduce Penn's carbon footprint and lessen the need for fossil fuel use. We are in agreement with them on the importance of this issue. We simply disagree on strategy: they are demanding that Penn divest, and the Trustees have already determined that fossil fuel does not meet the University's criteria for divestment.feedback

Laura Wilkinson - Gap

We believe that investing in a low-carbon economy will not only help foster a healthier environment, it is also a key to unlocking new business growth potential for the US and around the world.feedback

Mark Buckley - Staples

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

Sam Kimmins - The Climate

Before long, we will see every Budweiser, Corona and Stella Artois made with 100 percent renewable power, and it makes business sense, with financial savings, job creation and emissions cuts on offer. AB Inbev is significantly boosting demand for renewables around the world, showing just the kind of leadership we need to slow climate change and speed a low-carbon economy, inspiring other companies right along the value chain.feedback

Lu Kang

As a responsible developing country, China's plan, determination and policy to tackle climate change is resolute. We are willing to strengthen dialogue and co-operation with the international community to advance the global process of climate governance and promote the green, low-carbon and sustainable development so as to build a better future for next generations.feedback

Lynn Good - Duke Energy

Because of the competitive price of natural gas and the declining price of renewables, continuing to drive carbon out makes sense for us. Administrations will change during the life of our business and our assets, and we'll continue to move forward in a way that makes sense for our investors and our customers.feedback

Nathaniel Keohane

The rest of the world is likely to look on these actions more in sorrow than in anger – as a clear signal that Washington is abandoning its leadership role on climate, but not a threat to the growing momentum for global climate action. American leadership was critical to securing the Paris climate accord – but with that agreement in force, the rest of the world has embarked on a low-carbon path regardless of what Washington chooses to do. If the U.S. steps back, China will be happy to step forward.feedback

Jason Bordoff

The pace at which the energy system becomes less carbon-intensive, I think, is slower without supporting policies. I just don't think the world is going to shift to a deeply decarbonized economy by market forces alone.feedback

Al Gore

Today's executive order, directing the EPA to begin rolling back environmental protections and policies including the CPP, is a misguided step away from a sustainable, carbon-free future for ourselves and generations to come. It is essential, not only to our planet, but also to our economic future, that the United States continues to serve as a global leader in solving the climate crisis by transitioning to clean energy, a transition that will continue to gain speed due to the increasing competitiveness of solar and wind.feedback

Thomas E. Perez

True leadership is a president who had the political courage to move aggressively on carbon polluters, while leaving office with the longest streak of private-sector job growth on record. Instead, we have a president who has called climate change a hoax, picked an ExxonMobil CEO as his secretary of state, put a climate science denier at the head of the EPA, and gives a disgraceful handout to his rich friends in the fossil fuels industry.feedback

Richard Branson - Virgin Group

Graphene is even lighter [than carbon fibre], many times lighter and many times stronger. Hopefully graphene can be the planes of the future, if you go 10 years down the line. They would be massively lighter than the current planes, which again would make a difference on fuel burn.feedback

Tomás Carbonell

Large majorities of Americans in red and blue states alike support strong action to reduce carbon pollution from the nation's power plants, and the clean power plan is supported by a broad and diverse coalition of states, municipalities, power companies, leading businesses, consumer advocates, faith organizations and many others.feedback

Tomás Carbonell

These supporters will turn out in force to oppose the administration's outrageous attack on the United States' only nationwide limits on carbon pollution from power plants – safeguards that are essential to protecting our public health, securing a clean energy economy and yielding a safer climate for our children.feedback

Julienne Stroeve

It depends on how much carbon we continue to pump into the atmosphere every year. If you look at the figures you see a tight correlation between amounts of carbon in the atmosphere and sea-ice levels in summer. That graph shows that if we put another 1,000bn tonnes of carbon into the atmosphere from factories and transport and other sources, that will bring us to the point where there is no more summer sea ice.feedback

Johan Rockstrom

We should not be too concerned with the risks of the negative impact of the Trump administration.feedback

Bernard Hoffschmidt

We're essentially bringing the sun to the Earth, by re-creating its radiation in a lab. We orientate all lamps to focus on one point, which can generate temperatures of over 3,000 degrees Celsius. The hydrogen created can then be used to power airplanes and cars (with) carbon-dioxide-free fuel. In four hours the system uses about as much electricity as a four-person household in a year. Our goal is to eventually use actual sunlight to make hydrogen, rather than artificial light.feedback

Ricardo Biddy

If it wasn't for him, I wouldn't know what would have happened. We all have friends and we all have best friends. But to say that your best friend came to your aid and saved your life, it's remarkable. I'll be forever grateful.feedback

Ricardo Biddy

All I remember that night is being on the phone and feeling kind of dizzy and nauseous. After that I remember waking up in an ambulance with an IV in my arm.feedback

Mark Wakeham - Victoria

The lack of coherent national policy on energy and climate change is now damaging business confidence and investment across the economy. First Mr Abbott scrapped Australia's carbon laws which made polluters pay for their pollution. Then he replaced these effective laws with a policy which used taxpayers' money to pay polluters to stop polluting. Now he wants to use taxpayers' money to encourage one of the world's dirtiest power stations to keep polluting.feedback

Johan Rockstrom

We are already at the start of this trajectory. In the last decade, the share of renewables in the energy sector has doubled every 5.5 years. If doubling continues at this pace fossil fuels will exit the energy sector well before 2050.feedback

Chris Rapley

The article performs a helpful function by offering a way to re-express the Paris goal in practical terms that defines what those actions would need to achieve, ie halving emissions each decade plus building up capacity to draw down CO2 from the free atmosphere. There are other possibilities, but the idea of a 'Moore's Law' analogue is quite attractive.feedback

John Schellnhuber - Potsdam Institute for Climate Impact Research

It is both a tale of extreme urgency, reminding the world community of what was agreed [in Paris], and also saying it's not more difficult than it was establishing Moore's law in IT which came through investment, innovation and economies of scale. Short-termism has been a problem for all the 25 years I have been involved in climate negotiations. This has exacerbated in 2016 and 2017. The climate issue has disappeared from the radar screens of the international policy makers.feedback

John Schellnhuber - Potsdam Institute for Climate Impact Research

I talk to the CEOs of big car companies and they know the time of the combustion engine is over, in particular for the diesel engine. What we are saying [in the article] is that if you play your cards right, you win the game – all the jokers and high value cards are in the pack already.feedback

Gareth Redmond-King - World Wide Fund for Nature

It's important to remember that there is genuine hope. This inspiring vision of change reaffirms that we still have time, provided we commit to serious, ambitious and urgent action to control our environmental impact. Every journey, however long and complicated, is easier with a clear map.feedback

Christiana Figueres - United Nations

The carbon law for keeping us on track with Paris – something we can all follow – is such a valuable contribution at this critical time.feedback

Rod Downie - World Wide Fund for Nature

We need to act now to lower our carbon emissions by improving energy efficiency, switching from fossil fuels to renewable energy and tackling climate change head on.feedback

Greg Clark

Our iconic black cabs are famous across the world. The London Taxi Company's impressive new factory and R&D facility showcases the innovation that makes the UK a world leader in the development of new automotive technologies. Through our ambitious industrial strategy, we are committed to building on our strengths and taking advantage of the opportunities the new low-carbon economy provides.feedback

Annette Shanahan

When he stood up he realized something was wrong. He realized he was fuzzy and not right also. My husband went and looked to see if our children were home. But I couldn't stand up. I was thinking in my head I was having a heart attack. I slid down on my side down the stairs and he had gotten my cellphone to call our children to find out where they were.feedback

Bob Brown

Adani's coalmine will be the most dangerous in our history, ramping up global carbon pollution precisely when emissions need to be drastically cut.feedback

Charlie Enright

Now that we've done this once, we feel we can improve in every single area of the event itself, whether it's the way we choose to approach Cape Horn or the reduction of our overall carbon footprint.feedback

James Banks

She's an awesome kid. I wish I could carbon copy and continue to produce her year after year after year.feedback

Patrick Meehan

I have not been a supporter of carbon taxes in the past, and I don't think I would be inclined to as we move into the future.feedback

Abigail Ambrosia

Dwarfing appears to be a common evolutionary response of some mammals during past global warming events, and the extent of dwarfing seems related to the magnitude of the event. Abrupt perturbations of the global carbon cycle during the early Eocene are associated with rapid global warming events, which are analogous in many ways to present greenhouse warming.feedback

Ian Harnett - Jaguar Land Rover

Our future is low-carbon, clean and efficient. Our programme to reduce our burden on the National Grid doesn't end here; we seek continual improvements, both in how we can reduce energy consumption further and how to minimise our carbon emissions. Our aim is to give our customers an assurance that the company's electricity will come from renewable sources: those being in addition to the solar array at our Engine Manufacturing Centre in Wolverhampton - one of the largest rooftop installations in Europe.feedback

Pieter Tans

It's not enough to pull the excess that's in the atmosphere at that time – we'd also have to pull out what went into the oceans. If we want to undo this, we would have to artificially pull out all of the cumulative emissions since preindustrial times.feedback

Pieter Tans

Over the last decade, a more average rate [of increase] is about 2.4 parts per million per year. So record-high CO2 emissions, even though they stay flat, translates directly into a record-high CO2 increase [in the atmosphere. If we then proceeded by technical means – by some invention or some chemical engineering development – to pull CO2 out of the atmosphere and bury it, then the additional CO2 that's in the oceans will come back into the atmosphere.feedback

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 conclusion.feedback

Kevin E. Trenberth

Pruitt has demonstrated that he is unqualified to run the EPA or any agency. There is no doubt whatsoever that the planet is warming and it is primarily due to increased carbon dioxide in the atmosphere from burning of fossil fuels.feedback

Michael Brune - Sierra Club

The arsonist is now in charge of the fire department, and he seems happy to let the climate crisis burn out of control.feedback

Tristan Smith

In a decarbonising world, there is no place for LNG as more than a short-term transition marine fuel, and it will need to be replaced by genuine low carbon fuels.feedback

Michael Brune - Sierra Club

The arsonist is now in charge of the fire department and he seems happy to let the climate crisis burn out of control.feedback

Gina McCarthy - United States Environmental Protection Agency

The world of science is about empirical evidence, not beliefs. When it comes to climate change, the evidence is robust and overwhelmingly clear that the cost of inaction is unacceptably high. I cannot imagine what additional information the administrator might want from scientists for him to understand that.feedback

Kevin E. Trenberth

Pruitt has demonstrated that he is unqualified to run the EPA or any agency. There is no doubt whatsoever that the planet is warming, and it is primarily due to increased carbon dioxide in the atmosphere from burning of fossil fuels. Carbon dioxide is a greenhouse gas and we can demonstrate clearly that the observed warming of the planet would not have occurred without that change in atmospheric composition. These are scientific facts, not opinion, and it is incumbent on politicians to take account of the scientific evidence.feedback

Geoff Summerhayes

Markers that have been put down in the last year are significant and markets are already adjusting to those markers and the extent to which the draft report to FSB is adopted or not, we are of the view that a transition is under way to a lower-carbon world and that has implications on the risks that Apra-regulated entities need to oversee. Hence we expect them to be having a conversation about it.feedback

Matt Drum

We're still churning through our carbon budget pretty quickly and, if you run a trend line from when we made our Paris commitment, we're still way over and getting further and further behind. The only thing that's keeping us in the ballgame at all is our renewable energy generation. This makes sense when there's no other feasible carbon policy on the table at the moment. ERF [the emissions reduction fund] isn't doing it. Direct Action more broadly isn't going anywhere near it ….feedback

David Ellsworth

It means that our soils simply lack the available nutrients that would let trees take advantage of the extra CO2 they find in the air.feedback

David Ellsworth

The world pays a lot of attention to climate change modelling, including predictions on the amount of carbon that will be stored in trees. These reports are based on models and data taken largely from temperate forests where nutrients are in adequate supply, meaning that estimates on carbon absorption do not account for nutrient shortages on forest productivity. Australia's soils are very old and weathered by millions of years of sun and rain, meaning soils are very low in nutrients, and most of the available nutrients are tied up inside wood, leaves and roots.feedback

Fiona Simson

We need to look at the evidence – it may not be that an EIS is what the [Finkel] review comes up with. However, I would urge the prime minister to look at the evidence that is produced by the review and to take heed of the review.feedback

Fiona Simson

In agriculture it's absolutely devastating – we have businesses that rely on secure, reliable and affordable electricity to conduct cool stores that store fruit, for example, that run their milking machines for their cows, that run irrigation pumps for their fruit and their vegetables. Initially when [the federal government] announced their review we were delighted that everything was put on the table.feedback

Josh Frydenberg

While carbon emissions per capita have declined from 24.1 tonnes in 2011 to 22.2 tonnes in 2015 and energy efficiency improvements are reducing electricity demand, the report makes clear that, for the world to meet its Paris goals, there is much more to do.feedback

David Pugh - IDTechEx

A Chinese car manufacturer recently launched a carbon-independent vehicle covered in solar panels. There's a lot of growth potential in this area, though [that growth] is probably 10 years away.feedback

Julien Vincent

The first step to back up that commitment is to stop expanding the carbon fuel economy. We're not talking small projects, we're talking about opening up one of the largest offshore oil bases in Norway, or a new gas field in PNG. I think it's definitely become a lot harder for banks to fund coal because it's so clearly connected to climate change and other environmental and social issues.feedback

Rhea Suh

EPA's clean car standards are driving unprecedented reductions in carbon pollution and saving drivers money at the pump. Strong standards have been a critical factor in the auto industry's recovery from financial distress, so it makes no sense to reverse this progress.feedback

Thoriq Ibrahim

Climate change is happening but we are not leaving the Maldives to the waves. We are going nowhere. The dream [of making the Maldives carbon neutral] is over. We are looking to be a low-carbon country.feedback

Guenther Steiner

We had good brakes on Tuesday and we had good brakes today but yesterday that was one of our problems. We weren't consistent with the brakes so we had to put another set of brakes on. I would say it throws the driver off his focus when the brake doesn't work consistent, he's like 'oh is it coming back?feedback

Guenther Steiner

No with the other one we haven't tested enough yet to know whether they are consistent or not. We had a test last year but we haven't come to a conclusion and we still need to test them for this year because we were late with the sign off, so they have to use new brakes because the discs are thicker, so we haven't got them yet.feedback

Guenther Steiner

We are not completely done with the brakes. With the brakes our biggest problem is our inconsistency, again, we have sometimes a brake which we are really happy with and the drivers are really happy with and then we get a set which we are not happy with. You lose a lot of time because it's not only to change it, the driver loses the confidence and then when you put the next one on he needs to get into a state again that he's confident with what he gets. So we are not done with it yet.feedback

Timothy Lane

We will continue to pursue low, stable and predictable inflation amid the structural shift to a lower-carbon economy. But the more profound structural changes that will be taking place are likely to have important consequences for both aggregate supply and demand, which we will need to consider carefully as we conduct monetary policy. In the short run, they may be viewed as a downside risk to economic activity in Canada, which we would take into account in our risk management framework for monetary policy.feedback

Daniel Walton

Cheap gas has traditionally fuelled Australia's energy competitiveness and powered downstream manufacturing for decades. Going forward it should be providing abundant and cost-effective carbon reductions as Australia moves to a cleaner energy future.feedback

Andrew M. Cuomo

New York is a national leader in clean energy, and the tremendous growth of the solar industry across this state demonstrates this renewal technology's increased accessibility and affordability for residents and businesses. Our investments in this clean energy resource create jobs, reduce carbon emissions, support economic growth, and help build a cleaner, greener New York for all.feedback

Gabriel Yvon-Durocher

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 methane.feedback

Andrew Koscharsky

Existing green projects such as solar will enjoy the much needed premium (as they are not taxed).feedback

Trevor Sikoriski - Energy Aspects

Staying in the EU ETS sounds a lot like being half in and half out, which May seemed to be ruling out as a principle.feedback

Ian Duncan

I don't think it will have a future in the EU ETS after the UK leaves (Europe). Were the UK to be part of a system over which it could have no influence. I think that would be very difficult.feedback

Giles Dickson

Wind energy is now a mainstream and essential part of Europe's electricity supply. It is also a mature and significant industry in its own right, now providing 330,000 jobs and billions of euros of European exports. With all the talk about the transition to low-carbon, things should be looking good long-term for the wind industry in Europe. But they're not. Government policy on energy across Europe is less clear and ambitious than it was a few years ago. Only 7 out of 28 EU Member States have targets and policies in place for renewables beyond 2020.feedback

Ted Halstead

The climate problem is not going away. It will only get worse. To be blunt, in this political environment I don't think this moves unless it has White House support.feedback

Grover Norquist

Now that the GOP can repeal all the anti-energy, anti-job regs--the Left offers to trade those regs for a carbon tax. Nice try. No.feedback

Violeta Bulc

The European Union is now focused on getting the global scheme up and running. We are serious about achieving carbon neutral growth for aviation worldwide, and we will provide technical support to make it happen.feedback

Aruna Kumarankandath - Centre for Science and Environment

To encourage innovations like this, we would need more state backing, just as we have seen in the renewables space. These technologies are hard to develop and scale.feedback

Aniruddha Sharma - Carbon Clean Solutions

Carbon capture technology may have the single biggest impact on emissions reduction. But for it to be widely used, it's very important that the technology be cost-effective. The next wave of innovation will reduce the cost further, perhaps even by half, to the point where it's almost equivalent to or less than the emissions tax. Then, it would make more sense to capture the carbon than to emit it.feedback

James Leaton - Carbon Tracker

There appears to be a desire to justify business-as-usual at some companies, which does not constitute sound risk management.feedback

James Leaton - Carbon Tracker

Oil majors already do scenario analysis but, as Exxon previously indicated, they do not assign sufficient probability to a rapid (low-carbon) transition.feedback

Nezir Sinani

The World Bank has pledged to help countries adopt a low-carbon development path, specifically by phasing out fossil fuel subsidies and promoting a carbon tax. However, the bank's policy lending does the opposite, by introducing tax breaks for coal power plants and coal export infrastructure.feedback

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 competitiveness.feedback

Donald J. Trump

To begin with, the whole push for renewable energy is being driven by the wrong motivation, the mistaken belief that global climate change is being caused by carbon emissions. If you don't buy that – and I don't – then what we have is really just an expensive way of making the tree-huggers feel good about themselves.feedback

James Parrinello

With CARB's logic, or illogic, it could raise myriad revenue limited only by its own creativity.feedback

Barack Obama

Our national interest would be served only if this project does not significantly exacerbate the problem of carbon pollution. America is now a global leader when it comes to taking serious action to fight climate change. And frankly, approving this project would have undercut that global leadership.feedback

Kevin O'Leary

All [Trudeau's] policies on corporate tax, carbon tax, tax this, tax that, are completely out of sync with the U.S.. He should have used the Trump election to basically pivot. He didn't do that.feedback

Alex Jackson - Natural Resources Defense Council

For a jurisdiction as large as California, that's not small potatoes. This lawsuit strikes at the heart of how this program is operated.feedback

Amyas Morse

The Department (BEIS) must learn lessons from this experience if it is to stand any chance of ensuring the first CCS plants are built in the near future.feedback

Meg Hillier

Taxpayers will be alarmed that disagreement between departments means the taxpayers have little to show for the 100 million pounds the government spent.feedback

Meg Hillier

The government will have to work hard to restore investor confidence in carbon capture and storage, or come up with cost-effective alternatives to meet the UK's decarbonisation target.feedback

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 too.feedback

Oleg Deripaska - Rusal

We need to implement a carbon price, let's say tomorrow and maybe even escalate it a little to show a strong signal for people that it will be done properly.feedback

Gavin Schmidt

That's pretty unusual, but what's going on is this a long-term underlying trend that's driven mainly by greenhouse gases and the fact that carbon dioxide is continuing to increase.feedback

Petteri Taalas - World Meteorological Organisation

2016 was an extreme year for the global climate and stands out as the hottest year on record. But temperatures only tell part of the story. Long-term indicators of human-caused climate change reached new heights in 2016. Carbon dioxide and methane concentrations surged to new records. Both contribute to climate change.feedback

Kevin O'Leary

It means that we have to pivot, we have to be competitive. While he's lowering taxes, we're raising them. While he's eliminating carbon taxation, we're making it even more expensive to operate a business here.feedback

Dermot Nolan - Office of Gas and Electricity Markets

We need a more flexible energy system so that we can make the transition to a lower carbon future. A more flexible system will also ensure customers get the most out of new smart technologies.feedback

Bob Dinneen

This should answer the critics who have repeated Big Oil's polemic that renewable biofuels somehow increase carbon emissions.feedback

Dermot Nolan - Office of Gas and Electricity Markets

We need a more flexible energy system so that we can make the transition to a lower carbon future. Having a legally separate system operator will allow it to take on a more proactive role in managing the system and working with others, while mitigating any conflicts of interest.feedback

Wendel Trio - Climate Action Network

One of the big surprises for many people is the high-carbon intensity of the electricity production in Germany because that's the country where renewable energy has been promoted most. They've lead the solar energy revolution by investing a lot.feedback

Barack Obama

I remain convinced that no country is better suited to confront the climate challenge and reap the economic benefits of a low-carbon future than the United States.feedback

Barack Obama

Despite the policy uncertainty that we face, I remain convinced that no country is better suited to confront the climate challenge and reap the economic benefits of a low-carbon future than the United States. President-elect Donald Trump will have the opportunity to do so. The latest science and economics provide a helpful guide for what the future may bring.feedback

Anthony Leiserowitz

That is a greater increase than seen in any other group the researchers surveyed.feedback

Kim Kimmell

It could mean a significant weakening of the climate change regulations and initiatives during the Obama administration that have started us on the path toward lowering our carbon emissions.feedback

Patrick Morrisey

The order (to withdraw the plan) should explain that it is the administration's view that the (Clean Power Plan) is unlawful and that EPA lacks authority to enforce it. The executive order is necessary to send an immediate and strong message to States and regulated entities that the administration will not enforce the rule.feedback

Bibop Gresta

It will result in providing a sustainable solution – reducing the carbon footprint while enriching the lives of people in various communities here in Abu Dhabi.feedback

Keisuke Sadamori - International Energy Agency

Because of the implications for air quality and carbon emissions, coal has come under fire in recent years, but it is too early to say that this is the end for coal. Coal demand is moving to Asia, where emerging economies with growing populations are seeking affordable and secure energy sources to power their economies.feedback

Brad Wall

Let's not be naive as Canadians. This is our No.1, not just trading partner, but competitor ... we need to be competitive with them.feedback

Justin Trudeau

(This) will both protect our economy and protect the environment at the same time.feedback

Joe Biden

Reality has a way of intruding. Whatever uncertainty exists around the near-term policy choices of the next president, I am absolutely confident the United States will continue making progress on this path to a low-carbon future. And that's because many of the trends I've mentioned have taken hold and are no longer dependent on government initiatives. They are market-drive, they are common sense.feedback

Erin Flanagan

If the United States is reading between the lines, this is Canada trying to get more market share of the clean tech sector globally.feedback

Jim Carr

We think that we've struck the right balance ... it's tough to speculate on what President-elect Trump will do. We will be defending Canada's interests on the basis of the action of the new administration.feedback

Maria V. Zakharova

David Blowers

Australia's climate policy is quite unorganized and there is no certainty for power generators on investment or divestment.feedback

Benita Matofksa

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 responsibly.feedback

Juliet Phillips

Shell's proposed updates fall short. The inclusion of a greenhouse gas target cannot disguise the fact this policy broadly reinforces business as usual -- an unsustainable outlook that could put shareholder value at risk. Reducing operational emissions plays a very limited role in ensuring portfolio resilience under low carbon, low demand scenarios. It also does not address the risk of stranded assets.feedback

Ben van Beurden - Royal Dutch Shell

If you make new investment decisions that you have to live with for the next 30 or 40 years, why don't we screen these for long-term carbon intensity? In the past we didn't do this. The only thing we did was put a shadow price for carbon in them ... now we have to take it one step further.feedback

Ben van Beurden - Royal Dutch Shell

Lowering the carbon intensity of assets is the right thing to do, making them future-proof.feedback

Ben Johnson - Morningstar

Most of them are focused on securing servers and employee systems and are often afraid of putting security software on specialized machines. In fact, some vendors say the warranties are voided if security software is installed. This puts the municipalities in a very tough spot.feedback

Tim Erlin - Tripwire

There should be controls in place to segregate networks in such a way that these machines aren't connected with those that could infect them.feedback

Carl Herberger - Radware

Paying a ransom often leads to prolonged or repeated attacks. A better strategy is to turn the economic tables on attackers by making the business a more difficult target through strong security posture.feedback

Ed Cabrera - Trend Micro

Only by automating a lot this technology can you actually improve your risk management of these types of attacks.feedback

Ben van Beurden - Royal Dutch Shell

Each US$10 fall costs us US$5 billion in cash a year. The fact that over the coming few decades we are transitioning, in a more or less ordered way, to a low-carbon society is less draconian than what we've seen over the past two years.feedback

Graham Kerr

Metallurgical (coking) coal is attractive long term. Because of uncertainty around carbon prices, because of uncertainties around climate change, we're not going to buy or develop new energy (thermal) coal.feedback

Thierry Trouve

There are a lot of policy uncertainties. A few months ago when the government was thinking about a carbon floor price on coal and gas-fired power plants, some operators told us they will shut down if the plan went ahead.feedback

Keith Ahsoon

This is part of making history. This project will help lessen the carbon footprint of the world. Living on an island, you experience global warming firsthand. Beach erosions and other noticeable changes are a part of life here. It's a serious problem, and this project will hopefully set a good example for everyone else to follow.feedback

Ulriikka Aarnio

The real economy is actually moving faster than governments at this moment. So we can assume, we can hope there will be lots of over-achievements that we can then harvest and lots of excitement around the world to do more on the low carbon economy. So definitely we are talking towards the same goals but the question is that governments still need to speed up because this transition that is required is huge.feedback

Paul McConnell

There are risks of moving too quickly, moving too aggressively into this new space and finding that oil prices might come back, profitability from oil and gas starts to return. But on the flip side, there's a risk that companies could move too slowly and the market could change. We do see zero-carbon fuels growing around three percent a year on average over the next 20 years, as opposed to oil.feedback

Paul McConnell

Now I think from a carbon perspective, China – especially with President-Elect Trump coming into the mix – has an opportunity to almost take that baton of leadership here. It's a huge growing market. We do see coal demand in China in particular has already peaked and will continue to decline over the next 20 years.feedback

Paul McConnell

So the majors are under pressure to articulate some sort of response to this challenge of a lower carbon world and to de-risk their legacy operations.feedback

Paul McConnell

Regardless of what happens with U.S. support of the Paris Agreement, we do think these trends towards a lower carbon world are more or less baked into the mix. It's not really a matter of if; it's a matter of when, what magnitude and what regions it happens (in) first.feedback

Paul McConnell

We see global energy trends are changing. Sixty percent of global energy demand growth of the next 20 years will come from gas, or other zero-carbon fuels such as wind or solar energy. So the oil majors are under pressure to articulate some sort of response to this challenge of a lower-carbon world to de-risk the legacy operations.feedback

Erik Solheim

It is critical we do not reach the tipping point that will see peatlands stop sinking carbon and start spewing it into the atmosphere, destroying any hope we have of controlling climate change.feedback

Edda Sif Aradottir

We are currently capturing about 10,000 tons of CO2 a year. This is about 25 percent of the CO2 emissions from the power plant. We doubled the capacity this year, and we are taking it in stages … We'll see how far we get in the next years.feedback

Edda Sif Aradottir

We actually capture the CO2 at the power plant, dissolve it in water and inject it as sort of mineral water back into the ground.feedback

Nick Hurd

The U.K. is ratifying the historic Paris Agreement so that we can help to accelerate global action on climate change and deliver on our commitments to create a safer, more prosperous future for us all. We are going to use this positive momentum to grow the U.K. low-carbon sector, which is already worth over 46 billion pounds, as we continue to provide secure, affordable and clean energy to our families and businesses.feedback

Barry Parkin - Mars

It is vital that the business community demonstrates its ongoing commitment to tackling climate change. This is an important moment in global political and economic history, and we absolutely must come together to solve the immense challenges facing the planet. Climate change, water scarcity and deforestation are serious threats to society. It is imperative that global businesses, like Mars, do their part to face down those threats.feedback

Lara Birkes - Hewlett Packard Enterprise

The Paris Agreement was a vital step forward, but its power is in our collective action. Business and government leaders must urgently work together to drive a thriving, low-carbon economy.feedback

Kitack Lim - International Maritime Organization

I believe the main policy of the Paris agreement will be maintained ... I am rather optimistic.feedback

Kitack Lim - International Maritime Organization

It is not important whether we say we can make it in two or three years. What is more important is that we can establish a concrete plan which is not too far from now and how to implement that.feedback

Kitack Lim - International Maritime Organization

It is not appropriate just to compare shipping and aviation – they have their own operational features.feedback

Joseph Sprague - Alaska Airlines

This latest milestone in Alaska's efforts to promote sustainable biofuels is especially exciting since it is uniquely sourced from the forest residuals in the Pacific Northwest. NARA's accomplishments and the investment of the U.S. Department of Agriculture provide another key in helping Alaska Airlines and the aviation industry reduce its carbon footprint and dependency on fossil fuels.feedback

Glen Peters

It is great news that global carbon dioxide emissions have been flat in the last three years, but it is far too early to proclaim we have reached a peak.feedback

Bill Hare - Climate Analytics

The continued decline of China's carbon dioxide emissions, combined with knowledge of structural change in the energy system, does indicate that carbon dioxide emissions from China may have peaked, however a few more years of data is needed to confirm this.feedback

David Ray

This could be the turning point we have hoped for. To tackle climate change those bonds must be broken and here we have the first signs that they are at least starting to loosen.feedback

Adam Rondinone

In terms of impact, we're pretty excited about the idea that we can have a carbon neutral source of ethanol, and this truly is carbon neutral.feedback

Adam Rondinone

(The) ethanol that we make here is exactly the same as ethanol that is distilled from corn, and is exactly the same as ethanol that you drink in vodka or beer or whatever, it's the same exact molecule.feedback

Adam Rondinone

The main benefit of this technology, if it really pans out, is going to be the fact that it's carbon neutral.feedback

Adam Rondinone

Being the Department of Energy, we're really looking at the fuel market, because this is a drop-in replacement for gasoline, for cars that are designed to run ethanol fuel at high percentages. You can actually get a very efficient combustion process, you get a very clean combustion process … Ethanol's a great fuel, and so that's the primary market we're focused on.feedback

Storage is vital if we are to get the level of renewables that are required for a low carbon future.feedback

Katie Reytar - World Resources Institute

The global community needs to recognize the scientific evidence: keeping tropical forests intact prevents carbon emissions, and forest peoples do the job better than anyone else. The Marrakech conference presents an opportunity to act on this evidence. We need to take concrete steps toward recognizing rights, before global warming reaches the breaking point.feedback

Gunnar Luderer - Potsdam Institute for Climate Impact Research

If the world is serious about tackling climate change, the world's energy mix in 2050 will have to look fundamentally different from the one we have today. Limiting global warming to well below 2°C, as agreed by the international community at the climate summit in Paris last year, requires close to carbon-free electricity supply and a drastic reduction of fossil fuel use in the industry, transportation and buildings sectors.feedback

Justin Trudeau

The price will be set at a level that will assist Canada in achieving its goal for greenhouse gas emissions reductions, while allowing companies better stability and predictability.feedback

Provinces and territories will have a choice in how they implement this pricing. They can put a direct price on carbon pollution, or they can adopt a cap-and-trade system, with the expectation that it be stringent enough to meet or exceed the federal benchmark.feedback

Justin Trudeau

There is no hiding from climate change. It is real and it is everywhere. We cannot undo the last 10 years of inaction. What we can do is make a real and honest effort - today and every day - to protect the health of our environment, and with it, the health of all Canadians.feedback
