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[...]

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 gases.

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 c[...]

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 w[...]

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 improve[...]

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[...]

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.

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.

Bob Dinneen

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

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.

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 ar[...]

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 kin[...]

Anne Cranston

The Church of England… has a campaign which is called Shrinking the Footprint, and it's a very ambitious campaign to reduce carbon emissions throughout the Church by 80 percent by 2050.

Khalid al-Falih

The U.S., the most powerful economy in the world, the second-largest emitter of greenhouse gases, must respect the commitments that were made. It's not simply their duty, it's in their interest.

Francois Hollande

The United States, the most powerful economy in the world, the second-largest emitter of greenhouse gases, must respect the commitments that were made. It's not simply their duty, it's in their interest.

Fatih Birol - International Energy Agency

Let's not underestimate the task ahead. Limiting carbon emissions and changing our energy systems is a monumental challenge. But the IEA is working with governments around the world to help identify solutions and show how it can be done.

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 eviden[...]

Philip Mote

The 2015 snowpack season was an extreme year. But because of the increasing influence of greenhouse gases, years like this may become commonplace over the next few decades.

Carol Werner

Acting on HFCs does not exempt us from acting on CO2 or other important greenhouse gases like methane. We emit considerably more carbon, and it lingers in the atmosphere for more than 500 years.

Barack Obama

The results are clear: a more durable, growing economy; 15m new private-sector jobs since early 2010; rising wages, falling poverty, and the beginnings of a reversal in inequality; 20m more Americans with health insurance, while health-care costs gr[...]

Dorothy Rothrock

One big accomplishment to date of California climate policy is demonstrating that we can cut greenhouse gases and still achieve impressive economic growth.

Nerilie Abram

Our findings show that the climate can respond very quickly to changes in greenhouse gases.

Ian Davies - EasyJet

We are continuing to apply the use of new digital and engineering technologies across the airline. The hybrid plane concept we are announcing today is both a vision of the future and a challenge to our partners and suppliers to continue to push the [...]

Sarah Chappell

Although Africa contributes the lowest share of carbon emissions, it is the continent most susceptible to climate change. Its unique vulnerability is exacerbated by widespread poverty.

Leonardo DiCaprio

Last month in Paris world leaders reached an historic agreement that provides concrete framework for carbon emissions. This is an important first step but we're a long way off from claiming victory in the fight for our future and for the survival of[...]

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 [...]

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 securi[...]

Jeremiah Lengoasa

The main long-lived greenhouse gases including carbon dioxide, methane and nitrous oxide have reached their highest recorded levels since the beginning of the industrial age – this, in spite of the recent economic slowdown.

Michel Jarraud - World Meteorological Organization

This year we already announced that the concentration of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere was reaching record level. What is clear is that we are already in a very, very challenging situation to stay under two degrees (of warming). So the more com[...]

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 a[...]
