Al Gore
"We are running out of time, and we must have a planetary solution to a planetary crisis."

In our everyday experience, if something has never happened before, we are generally safe in assuming it is not going to happen in the future, but the exceptions can kill you, and climate change is one of those exceptions."

Albert Einstein
"The world will not be destroyed by those who do evil, but by those who watch them without doing anything."

Amitav Ghosh

Ban Ki-moon
"Climate change is destroying our path to sustainability. Ours is a world of looming challenges and increasingly limited resources. Sustainable development offers the best chance to adjust our course."

Ban Ki-moon
"Saving our planet, lifting people out of poverty, advancing economic growth… these are one and the same fight. We must connect the dots between climate change, water scarcity, energy shortages, global health, food security, and women’s empowerment. Solutions to one problem must be solutions for all."

Ban Ki-moon
"The clear and present danger of climate change means we cannot burn our way to prosperity. We already rely too heavily on fossil fuels and we need to find a new, sustainable path to the future we want. We need a clean industrial revolution."

Ban Ki-moon
"Climate change, in some regions, has aggravated conflict over scarce land, and could well trigger large-scale migration in the decades ahead. And rising sea levels put at risk the very survival of all small island states. These and other implications for peace and security have implications for the United Nations itself."

Ban Ki-moon
"Climate change does not respect border; it does not respect who you are – rich and poor, small and big. Therefore, this is what we call ‘global challenges,’ which require global solidarity."

Barack Obama
"There’s one issue that will define the contours of this century more dramatically than any other, and that is the urgent threat of a changing climate."

Barack Obama
"The shift to a cleaner energy economy won’t happen overnight, and it will require tough choices along the way. But the debate is settled. Climate change is a fact."

Barack Obama
"We are the first generation to feel the effect of climate change and the last generation who can do something about it."

Bill Gates
"By the time we see that climate change is really bad, your ability to fix it is extremely limited… The carbon gets up there, but the heating effect is delayed. And then the effect of that heat on the species and ecosystem is delayed. That means that even when you turn virtuous, things are actually going to get worse for quite a while."

Bill Nye
"Climate change is happening, humans are causing it, and I think this is perhaps the most serious environmental issue facing us."

Bruce Duncan Phillips
"I’d put my money on the sun and solar energy. What a source of power! I hope we don’t have to wait until oil and coal run out before we tackle that."

Chief Seattle
"All things share the same breath — the beast, the tree, the man. The air shares its spirit with all the life it supports."

Chief Seattle
"The earth is not dying. It is being killed, and the people killing it have names and addresses."

 

Inspiring Quotes about Sustainability

Christian de Duve
"The cost of our success is the exhaustion of natural resources, leading to energy crises, climate change, pollution, and the destruction of our habitat. If you exhaust natural resources, there will be nothing left for your children. If we continue in the same direction, humankind is headed for some frightful ordeals, if not extinction."

Christine Milne

Edward Abbey
"Action is the antidote to despair."

Emmanuel Macron
"By polluting the oceans, not mitigating CO 2 emissions and destroying our biodiversity, we are killing our planet. Let us face it, there is no planet B."

Ernest Hemingway
"The Earth is a fine place and worth fighting for."

Ernest Hemingway
"Pollution and climate change by excessive burning of fossil fuels are real threats, not the people who warn that we must take these threats seriously."

And the consequences of climate change are fully known now – we’re not talking about theories anymore, we’re talking about certainties."

Franklin D. Roosevelt

We are in the beginning of a mass extinction, and all you can talk about is money and fairy tales of eternal economic growth. How dare you!"

Inspiring  Quotes about Environment

"The future will be green or not at all."

Juan Manuel Santos

Telling us we need to evolve."

Native American Proverb
"We do not inherit the earth from our ancestors, we borrow it from our children."
