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 Queensland.feedback

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 hard.feedback

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 future.feedback

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 economy.feedback

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 chain.feedback

Evelyn Mervine - De Beers

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

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 regardless.feedback

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

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 role.feedback

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 weather.feedback

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 issue.feedback

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 emissions.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

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 closing.feedback

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: 1°C 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

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

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

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

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 alone.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

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 election.feedback

Yuhang Wang

In the long run, emission reductions of both pollutants and greenhouse gases are needed to mitigate the winter haze problem.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

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 systems.feedback

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.feedback

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 targets.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

Andrew M. Cuomo

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

Geert Jan van Oldenborgh

Temperatures like those seen across the lower 48 this past February are becoming more and more common as cold winter months are getting rarer. The observations show a clear trend and climate models confirm it is caused by greenhouse gases.feedback

Deborah Sivas

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 setback.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

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

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

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

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

Bob Dinneen

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

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

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

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.feedback

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.feedback

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.feedback

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.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

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.feedback

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.feedback

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 grow at the slowest rate in 50 years; annual deficits cut by nearly three-quarters; and declining carbon emissions.feedback

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.feedback

Nerilie Abram

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

Simonetta Cheli

The data that comes from current missions in orbit and missions to be launched in the next few years will serve not only to see how the climate doing but also to contribute to 'reporting' on a country-by-country basis on the evolution of greenhouse gases and CO2.feedback

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 boundaries towards reducing our carbon emissions.feedback

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.feedback

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 our planet. The Paris agreement was a call to action but it's now up to all of us to build this progress with ingenuity and a commitment to change.feedback

Michel Jarraud - World Meteorological Organization

We have broken a new record once again. Over the last 25 years between 1990 and 2014, there was a 36 percent increase in the radiative forcing of greenhouse gases.feedback

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 that.feedback

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 efficiency.feedback

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 too.feedback

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 investment.feedback

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.feedback

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 commitments are delayed, the more difficult it will be to meet these targets.feedback
