#1. Our carbon emissions have to eventually go to zero. We have to. Otherwise we're never going to have a stable climate and that's what our goal is for human civilization to thrive, a stable climate. We don't want one that's hotter, we don't want one that's colder, we want one that's stable. - Author: Katharine Hayhoe
Activated Carbon quotes by Katharine Hayhoe
#2. Free speech and a dynamic, innovative society are intimately connected: a culture that can't bear a dissenting word on race or religion or gender fluidity or carbon offsets is a society that will cease to innovate, and then stagnate, and then decline, very fast.

As American universities, British playwrights, and Australian judges once understood, the 'safe space' is where cultures go to die. - Author: Mark Steyn
Activated Carbon quotes by Mark Steyn
#3. Climate is not responding to greenhouse gases in the way we thought it might. If increasing carbon dioxide is in fact increasing climate change, its impact is smaller than natural variation. People are being misled by people making money out of this. - Author: Chris De Freitas
Activated Carbon quotes by Chris De Freitas
#4. Windmills and solar cells are carbon-free sources of electricity. But they are costly. If you've been investing in those, give it up. That game is effectively over. - Author: Kenneth Fisher
Activated Carbon quotes by Kenneth Fisher
#5. We have known since the 1800s that carbon dioxide traps heat in the atmosphere. The right amount keeps the climate conducive to human life. - Author: James Hansen
Activated Carbon quotes by James Hansen
#6. Becoming carbon neutral is only the beginning. The climate problem will not be solved by one company reducing its emissions to zero, and it won't be solved by one government acting alone. The climate problem will not be solved without mass participation by the general public in countries around the globe. - Author: Rupert Murdoch
Activated Carbon quotes by Rupert Murdoch
#7. They also,' Skaffen-Amtiskaw said, 'refuse to acknowledge machine sentience fully; they exploit proto-conscious computers and claim only human subjective experience has any intrinsic value; carbon fascists. - Author: Iain M. Banks
Activated Carbon quotes by Iain M. Banks
#8. Even if every major government were to slap huge taxes on carbon fuels - which is not going to happen - it wouldn't do much to halt climate change any time soon. What it would do is cost us hundreds of billions - if not trillions - of dollars, because alternative energy technologies are not yet ready to take up the slack. - Author: Bjorn Lomborg
Activated Carbon quotes by Bjorn Lomborg
#9. We won!' Prestoff shouted. One of the giants turned to face him. 'We're finished here, thank the God-Emperor,' the captain said. Buzzing split the air as power weapons were activated. The storm troopers raised their hellguns. Sadness aching in his eyes, the Silver Saint murmured, 'Not quite. - Author: Anonymous
Activated Carbon quotes by Anonymous
#10. We have always existed in different forms - carbon, oxygen, water, heat. Maybe Heaven is this brief period when the elements realize they're alive. - Author: Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu
Activated Carbon quotes by Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu
#11. My study is NOT as a climatologist, but from a completely different perspective in
which I am an expert ... For decades, as a professional experimental test engineer, I have analyzed experimental data and watched others massage and present data. I became a cynic; My conclusion - 'if someone is aggressively selling a technical product who's merits are dependent on complex experimental data, he is likely lying'. That is true whether the product is an airplane or a Carbon Credit. - Author: Burt Rutan
Activated Carbon quotes by Burt Rutan
#12. Water: 35 liters, Carbon: 20 kg, Ammonia: 4 liters, Lime:1.5 kg, Phosphrus: 800 g, salt: 250g, saltpeter:100g, Sulfer: 80g, Fluorine: 7.5 g, iron: 5.6 g, Silicon: 3g, and 15 other elements in small quantities ... thats the total chemical makeup of the average adult body. Modern science knows all of this, but there has never been a single example of succesful human trasmutation. It's like there's some missing ingredient ... Scientists have been trying to find it for hundreds of years, pouring tons of money into research, and to this day they don't have a theory. For that matter, the elements found in a human being is all junk that you can buy in any market with a child's allowence. Humans are pretty cheaply made. - Author: Hiromu Arakawa
Activated Carbon quotes by Hiromu Arakawa
#13. There is no doubt that we should take solar radiation into account. We have seen ground temperatures rising since 1975, and it is important to know to what extent that has been caused by the sun or by carbon dioxide. - Author: Bjorn Lomborg
Activated Carbon quotes by Bjorn Lomborg
#14. The potatoes grew bigger as carbon dioxide increased. This was not a surprise. We also saw that these big potatoes were less nutritious, much lower in protein content, no matter how much fertilizer we gave them. This was a bit of a surprise. It is also bad news, because the poorest and hungriest nations of the world rely on sweet potatoes for a significant amount of dietary protein. It looks as if the bigger potatoes of the future might feed more people while nourishing them less. I don't have an answer for that one. The - Author: Hope Jahren
Activated Carbon quotes by Hope Jahren
#15. Ambivalence is like carbon monoxide - undetectable yet deadly. - Author: Cherie Carter-Scott
Activated Carbon quotes by Cherie Carter-Scott
#16. My first inclination is to be a bit skeptical about the claims that human-produced carbon dioxide is the direct contributor to global warming. - Author: Buzz Aldrin
Activated Carbon quotes by Buzz Aldrin
#17. Science is warning us that if we do not quickly reduce the global warming pollution that is trapping so much of the heat our planet normally radiates back out of the atmosphere, we are in danger of creating a permanent 'carbon summer'. - Author: Al Gore
Activated Carbon quotes by Al Gore
#18. Vaporized by the sun! Wasn't that what the universe had in store for all of us? There would come a day when the sun exploded like a red balloon, and everyone on earth would be reduced in less than a camera flash to carbon. Didn't Genesis say as much? For dust thou art, and unto dust shalt thou return. This was far more than dull old theology: It was precise scientific observation! Carbon was the Great Leveler
the Grim Reaper.
Diamonds were nothing more than carbon, but carbon in a crystal lattice that made it the hardest known mineral in nature. That was the way we all were headed. I was sure of it. We were destined to be diamonds! - Author: Alan Bradley
Activated Carbon quotes by Alan Bradley
#19. The 2013/14 storms & floods show the UK needs to invest in a climate resilient, low carbon, food secure, full employment, positive future - Author: Phil Harding
Activated Carbon quotes by Phil Harding
#20. Furthermore, because silicon packs on more protons than carbon, it's bulkier, like carbon with fifty extra pounds. Sometimes that's not a big deal. Silicon might substitute adequately for carbon in the Martian equivalent of fats or proteins. But carbon also contorts itself into ringed molecules we call sugars. Rings are states of high-tension- which means they store lots of energy-and silicon just isn't supple enough to bend into the right position to form rings. In a related problem, silicon atoms cannot squeeze their electrons into tight spaces for double bonds, which appear in virtually every complicated biochemical. - Author: Sam Kean
Activated Carbon quotes by Sam Kean
#21. The carbon fuels industry-big oil and coal-have a 50-year lease on the Republican Party and they are drilling it for everything it's worth. - Author: Al Gore
Activated Carbon quotes by Al Gore
#22. Byron, as he burns on, sees more and more of this pattern. He learns how to make contact with other kinds of electric appliances, in homes, in factories and out in the streets. Each has something to tell him. The pattern gathers in his soul (Seele, as the core of the earlier carbon filament was known in Germany), and the grander and clearer it grows, the more desperate Byron gets. Someday he will know everything, and still be as impotent as before. His youthful dreams of organizing all the bulbs in the world seem impossible now - the Grid is wide open, all messages can be overheard, and there are more than enough traitors out on the line. Prophets traditionally don't last long - they are either killed outright, or given an accident serious enough to make them stop and think, and most often they do pull back. But on Byron has been visited an even better fate. He is condemned to go on forever, knowing the truth and powerless to change anything. No longer will he seek to get off the wheel. His anger and frustration will grow without limit, and he will find himself, poor perverse bulb, enjoying it. - Author: Thomas Pynchon
Activated Carbon quotes by Thomas Pynchon
#23. Compare the air to a forest. When forest fires occur regularly, there is less fuel for any one fire, so the burns don't become conflagrations. If you prevent forest fires and build up a huge mass of living and dead wood in the forest, when a burn at last occurs, it is likely to be serious and large. When increased atmospheric carbon warms the air and when more vapor is available, conflagrational storms become more likely.
Will the pattern of storms be seen in the future as an anomaly? Or with so much more water vapor in the air, is it now normal? 'Everyone talks about global warming,' said Gavin Schmidt, head of the NASA climate models at the Goddard Institute for Space Studies, 'but changes in rainfall often have a bigger impact. We're forcing the climate into a state we have not seen for millions of years - Author: William Bryant Logan
Activated Carbon quotes by William Bryant Logan
#24. There's no huge mystery. If you dig up huge amounts of carbon, huge amounts of ancient biology, hundreds of millions of year's worth of ancient biology, and flush it into the atmosphere in a matter of decades, then it stands to reason that we're going to have enormous effects, and now we can see those effects all around us. - Author: Bill McKibben
Activated Carbon quotes by Bill McKibben
#25. Scratch the surface at conservative think tanks and universities that house free-market economists, and it's not hard to find proponents of a carbon tax. - Author: Nina Easton
Activated Carbon quotes by Nina Easton
#26. Sure, you can say nuclear power is somewhat less carbon-intensive than burning fossil fuels for energy; beating your children to death with a club will prevent them from getting hit by a car. Ravaging the Earth by one irreparable means is not a sensible way to prevent it from being destroyed by another. There are alternatives. We should choose them and use them. - Author: Rebecca Solnit
Activated Carbon quotes by Rebecca Solnit
#27. An outdated view still prevails that a low-carbon lifestyle requires immense personal suffering and sacrifice. In my view, nothing could be further from the truth. All the evidence shows that people who do not drive, do not fly on planes, do shop locally, do grow their own food, and do get to know other members of their community have a much higher quality of life than their compatriots who still persist in making the ultimate sacrifice of wasting their lives commuting to work in cars. - Author: Mark Lynas
Activated Carbon quotes by Mark Lynas
#28. People with more money than time buy $3,000 road racing bicycles with ultralight carbon frames to shave two pounds off the bike, regardless of the fact that they themselves are probably at least 10 pounds overweight. - Author: Jacob Lund Fisker
Activated Carbon quotes by Jacob Lund Fisker
#29. I don't feel part of the world. No one needs me or wants me or even likes me very much. I don't like myself. The world will keep turning without me. I'll be no great loss. I'm just a temporary misuse of a minute amount of carbon. - Author: Barbara Elsborg
Activated Carbon quotes by Barbara Elsborg
#30. Driving a hybrid car could save about one ton of carbon-dioxide emissions per year but adopting a plant-based diet would save nearly one and a half tons over a comparable period."

"If every American reduced chicken consumption by one meal per week, the carbon-dioxide savings would be equivalent to removing 500,000 cars form the road."

In a given year, "the number of animals killed to satisfy American palates is 8.6 billion, or 29 animals per average American meat eater. The total number of animals killed on land and sea was approximately 80 billion, or 270 per American meat and fish eater - making the average number of animals consumed in one American lifetime 21,000. - Author: Gene Stone
Activated Carbon quotes by Gene Stone
#31. Unhappiness is a dangerous thing, like carbon monoxide. You don't smell it, you don't taste it, it's formless and colourless, but it poisons slowly. It seeps into every pore of your skin until one day your heart just stops beating. - Author: Bella Pollen
Activated Carbon quotes by Bella Pollen
#32. Goods must once again be made to last, and the use of energy-intensive long-haul transport will need to be rationed - reserved for those cases where goods cannot be produced locally or where local production is more carbon-intensive. (For example, growing food in greenhouses in cold parts of the United States is often more energy intensive than growing it in warmer regions and shipping it by light rail.)45 - Author: Naomi Klein
Activated Carbon quotes by Naomi Klein
#33. An extremely effective instrument would be to put a price on carbon. It is only through the market that you can get a large enough and rapid enough response [to climate change] - Author: Rajendra K. Pachauri
Activated Carbon quotes by Rajendra K. Pachauri
#34. Radio is a bag of mediocrity where little men with carbon minds wallow in sluice of their own making. - Author: Fred Allen
Activated Carbon quotes by Fred Allen
#35. Human releases of carbon dioxide are almost certainly happening faster than any natural carbon release since the beginning of life on Earth. - Author: Mark Lynas
Activated Carbon quotes by Mark Lynas
#36. But to truly transform our economy, protect our security, and save our planet from the ravages of climate change, we need to ultimately make clean, renewable energy the profitable kind of energy. So I ask this Congress to send me legislation that places a market-based cap on carbon pollution and drives the production of more renewable energy in America. - Author: Barack Obama
Activated Carbon quotes by Barack Obama
#37. Something ... activated ... by psychic power. Do I have to explain weaponry, or can you manage that alone?' - Gabriel - Author: L.J.Smith
Activated Carbon quotes by L.J.Smith
#38. It's the fish I feel sorry for, in all this global warming. They don't even have a carbon footprint. - Author: J.L. Merrow
Activated Carbon quotes by J.L. Merrow
#39. I believe the most powerful of emotions is Hope; it is in everything we do. It is like an atom, so to speak, closely related to that of carbon. So many things can be bonded with it to create so many different things; some good, some bad. Combine Hope with Opportunity and Desire, and you get a force that can move mountains; combine it with Love, you can change a civilization; combine it with Fear and you can enslave a whole people. But take away Hope and you will have someone who has nothing left to lose, and that can cost you an empire. - Alsop Tambor's Address to the Assembly - Author: S. Cameron Roach
Activated Carbon quotes by S. Cameron Roach
#40. I have not been one who believed in the global warming. But I tell you, they are making a convert out of me as these blistering summers. They have broken heat records in a number of cities already this year and broken all-time records and it is getting hotter and the ice caps are melting and there is a build up of carbon dioxide in the air. We really need to address the burning of fossil fuels. - Author: Pat Robertson
Activated Carbon quotes by Pat Robertson
#41. Thinking! Thinking! The process should no longer be merely this feeble flurry of hailstones that raises a little dust. It should be something quite different. Thinking should be a terrifying process. When the earth thinks, whole towns crumble to the ground and thousands of people die.
Thinking: raising boulders, hollowing out valleys, preparing tidal waves at sea. Thinking like a town: that's to say: eight million inhabitants, twelve million rats, nine million pints of carbon dioxide, two billion tons. Grey light. Cathedral of light. Din. Sudden flashes. Low-lying blanket of black cloud. Flat roofs. Fire alarms. Elevators. Streets. Eighteen thousand miles of streets. 145 million electric light bulbs. - Author: Jean-Marie G. Le Clezio
Activated Carbon quotes by Jean-Marie G. Le Clezio
#42. Is the world divided into mind and matter, and, if so, what is mind, what is matter? Is mind subject to matter, or is it possessed of independent powers? Has the universe any unity or purpose? Is it evolving towards some goal? Are there really laws of nature, or do we believe in them only because of our innate love of order? Is man what he seems to the astronomer, a tiny lump of impure carbon and water impotently crawling on a small and unimportant planet? Or is he what he appears to Hamlet? Is there a way of living that is noble and another that is base, or are all ways of living merely futile? ... To such questions no answers can be found in the laboratory.'23 - Author: John C. Lennox
Activated Carbon quotes by John C. Lennox
#43. A new laboratory technique, positron emission tomography, uses radioactively labeled oxygen or glucose that essentially lights up specific and different areas of the brain being activated when a person speaks words or sees words or hears words, revealing the organic location for areas of behavioral malfunction. - Author: Floyd Skloot
Activated Carbon quotes by Floyd Skloot
#44. When you have an idea, it is like carbon. It has potential. To make it into a diamond, you need to put in hard work. When you have a diamond, it may not be perfect. You need to polish it, improve it. Only then is it valuable. - Author: Rohan Kulkarni
Activated Carbon quotes by Rohan Kulkarni
#45. It is very important that you be compassionate with yourself. The worse you feel about yourself, the more you'll want to go back to the false safety of the bad relationship you were in. Your attachment system gets activated more when you feel bad about yourself - Author: Amir Levine
Activated Carbon quotes by Amir Levine
#46. We all don't have to be carbon copies of one another to work on the same team, but we can learn from other people. - Author: Christina Dalcher
Activated Carbon quotes by Christina Dalcher
#47. An NDP government will establish, in law, clear criteria for resource extraction and transportation based on the principles of sustainable development, which include internalizing all pollution costs and putting a price on carbon. In our day and age there is no longer any way around it. Any new energy project requires a thorough, credible environmental assessment process, based on criteria of sustainable development and social acceptability. We don't have one in Canada, because the Conservatives have gutted all the relevant existing legislation and reduced the staff responsible for enforcing it. - Author: Tom Mulcair
