Climate Change Quotes

[M]y administration is committed to a leadership role on the issue of climate change.

George Walker Bush

Global warming causing climate change may be the ultimate issue that unites us all.

Louise Burfitt Dons

To identify climate change related to this carbon dioxide increase, we need to look for trends in global warming over similar lengths of time.

John Houghton

The impact of climate change on agriculture could result in problems with food security and may threaten livelihood activities upon which much of the population depends.

Ian Pearson

Gordon Brown thinks you should solve climate change by changing your lightbulbs. We think you should solve climate change by changing your Government.

Sian Berry

An increase in global temperature will lead to global climate change.

John Houghton

I believe we have a responsibility not only to our contemporaries but also to future generations a responsibility to preserve resources that belong to them as well as to us, and without which none of us can survive. That means we must do much more, and urgently, to prevent or slow down climate change. Everyday that we do nothing, or too little, imposes higher costs on our children and our childrens children. Of course, it reminds me of an African proverb the earth is not ours but something we hold in trust for future generations. I hope my generation will be worthy of that trust.

Kofi Atta Annan

Global warming causing climate change may be the ultimate issue that unites us all.

Louise Burfitt Dons

Climate change is the most severe problem that we are facing today, more serious even than the threat of terrorism.

David King

If you think mitigated climate change is expensive, try unmitigated climate change

Dr. Richard Gammon

I’m no longer sceptical. I no longer have any doubt at all. I think climate change is the major challenge facing the world.

Sir David Attenborough

First, I worry about climate change. It's the only thing that I believe has the power to fundamentally end the march of civilization as we know it, and make a lot of the other efforts that we're making irrelevant and impossible

Bill Clinton

Climate change is real. The science is compelling. And the longer we wait, the harder the problem will be to solve.

Senator John Kerry

Climate change is such a huge issue that it requires strong, concerted, consistent and enduring action by governments.

Peter Garrett

Men don't like to step abruptly out of the security of familiar experience; they need a bridge to cross from their own experience to a new way. A revolutionary organizer must shake up the prevailing patterns of their lives -- agitate, create disenchantment and discontent with the current values, to produce, if not a passion for change, at least a passive, affirmative, non-challenging climate.

Saul David Alinsky

Water and its availability and quality will be the main pressures on, and issues for, societies and the environment under climate change.

IPCC, 2007

There is still time to avoid the worst impacts of climate change, if we take strong action now.

Sir Nicholas Stern

Climate change poses clear, catastrophic threats. We may not agree on the extent, but we certainly can't afford the risk of inaction.

Rupert Murdoch

Climate change is so big that people who study it.. and many do.. need to speak to it. They must present scientific papers, they must appear in public, they must speak to the media and we must hear their voices. In order to get policy right, policymakers.. governments.. need to make decisions based on sound science.

Peter Garrett

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

The issue of climate change is one that we ignore at our own peril. There may still be disputes about exactly how much we're contributing to the warming of the earth's atmosphere and how much is naturally occurring, but what we can be scientifically certain of is that our continued use of fossil fuels is pushing us to a point of no return. And unless we free ourselves from a dependence on these fossil fuels and chart a new course on energy in this country, we are condemning future generations to global catastrophe.

Barack Obama

Ignoring climate change will be the most costly of all possible choices, for us and our children

Peter Ewins

Today we're seeing that climate change is about more than a few unseasonably mild winters or hot summers. It's about the chain of natural catastrophes and devastating weather patterns that global warming is beginning to set off around the world.. the frequency and intensity of which are breaking records thousands of years old.

Barack Obama

I consider the concept of a global mean temperature to be somewhat dubious. A single number cannot adequately capture climate change. This number, as I see it, is aimed mostly at politicians and journalists.

Craig Bohren

Not only is the Kyoto approach to global warming wrong-headed, the climate change establishment's suppression of dissent and criticism is little short of a scandal. The IPCC should be shut down… In Europe, where climate change absolutism is at its strongest, the quasi-religion of greenery in general and the climate change issue in particular have filled the vacuum of organised religion, with reasoned questioning of its mantras regarded as a form of blasphemy.

Nigel Lawson

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
