Note even Jonathan Swift would dare to write a satire in which politicians argued that - in a world where species are vanishing and more than a billion people are barely able to afford to eat - it would somehow be good for the planet to clear rain-forests to grow palm oil, or give up food-crop land to grow biofuels, solely so that people could burn fuel derived from carbohydrate rather than hydrocarbons in their cars, thus driving up the price of food for the poor. Ludicrous is too weak a word for this heinous crime. ~ Matt Ridley
Fuel Price Hike quotes by Matt Ridley
Energy is significantly underpriced in many parts of the world, leading to wasteful consumption, price volatility and fuel smuggling. It's also undermining the competitiveness of renewables. ~ Fatih Birol
Fuel Price Hike quotes by Fatih Birol
The death penalty exacts a terrible price in dollars, lives and human decency. Rather than tamping down the flames of violence, it fuels them while draining millions of dollars from more promising efforts to restore safety to our lives. ~ Robert M. Morgenthau
Fuel Price Hike quotes by Robert M. Morgenthau
We as a nation have no choice but to conserve fuel to the best of our abilities or be prepared for harsh measures like steep price increase, if the need so arises. ~ Veerappa Moily
Fuel Price Hike quotes by Veerappa Moily
Pfaff: The riposte of a civilized nation: one that believes in good, in human society and does oppose evil, has to be narrowly focused and, above all, intelligent. Missiles are blunt weapons. Those terrorists are smart enough to make others bear the price for what they have done, and to exploit the results. A maddened U.S. response that hurts still others is what they want: It will fuel the hatred that already fires the self-righteousness about their criminal acts against the innocent. What the United States needs is cold reconsideration of how it has arrived at this pass. It needs, even more, to foresee disasters that might lie in the future. ~ Gore Vidal
Fuel Price Hike quotes by Gore Vidal
Unless a price can be put on carbon emissions that is high enough to force power companies and manufacturers to reduce their fossil-fuel use, there seems to be little chance of avoiding hugely damaging temperature increases ~ Rajendra K. Pachauri
Fuel Price Hike quotes by Rajendra K. Pachauri
Unlike fuel-economy standards, the most common method of reducing demand for oil over the past thirty years, a gas tax doesn't tell people what kind of car to drive. It simply raises the price of gasoline and lets people adjust their behavior accordingly. ~ James Surowiecki
Fuel Price Hike quotes by James Surowiecki
Now it will take a long time to scale biofuels, but I'm the only one in the world forecasting oil dropping in price to $35 a barrel by 2030. I'll put it on the record: Oil will not be able to compete with cellulosic biofuels. If you do it from food, the food will get so expensive you can't make fuel out of it. ~ Vinod Khosla
Fuel Price Hike quotes by Vinod Khosla
Rakitin doesn't understand it, all he wants is to build his house and rent out rooms ... Life is simple for Rakitin: 'You'd do better to worry about extending mans civil rights,' he told me today, 'or at least about not letting the price of beef go up; you'd render your love for mankind more simply and directly that way than with any philosophies.' But I came back at him: 'And without God,' I said, 'you'll hike up the price of beef yourself, if the chance comes your way, and make a rouble on every kopeck. ~ Fyodor Dostoyevsky
Fuel Price Hike quotes by Fyodor Dostoyevsky
As we explore ways to bring price relief and bolster our country's energy independence, one significant energy source has emerged as a potential solution, hydrogen fuel cells. ~ Dan Lipinski
Fuel Price Hike quotes by Dan Lipinski
You're also looking at a global warming solution here in Europe: smaller vehicles, more energy efficient, many which use diesel fuel which is more efficient. And the price of gas here is $6 a gallon to discourage guzzling. A lot of big ideas and innovations coming out of Europe. ~ Chris Cuomo
Fuel Price Hike quotes by Chris Cuomo
We need to do more to conserve fuel or face tougher choices such as steep price increase or even quantitative restrictions. ~ Veerappa Moily
Fuel Price Hike quotes by Veerappa Moily
ethanol may actually make some kinds of air pollution worse. It evaporates faster than pure gasoline, contributing to ozone problems in hot temperatures. A 2006 study published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences concluded that ethanol does reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 12 percent relative to gasoline, but it calculated that devoting the entire U.S. corn crop to make ethanol would replace only a small fraction of American gasoline consumption. Corn farming also contributes to environmental degradation due to runoff from fertilizer and pesticides.
But to dwell on the science is to miss the point. As the New York Times noted in the throes of the 2000 presidential race, ―Regardless of whether ethanol is a great fuel for cars, it certainly works wonders in Iowa campaigns. The ethanol tax subsidy increases the demand for corn, which puts money in farmers' pockets. Just before the Iowa caucuses, corn farmer Marvin Flier told the Times, ―Sometimes I think [the candidates] just come out and pander to us, he said. Then he added, ―Of course, that may not be the worst thing. The National Corn Growers Association figures that the ethanol program increases the demand for corn, which adds 30 cents to the price of every bushel sold.
Bill Bradley opposed the ethanol subsidy during his three terms as a senator from New Jersey (not a big corn-growing state). Indeed, some of his most important accomplishments as a senator involved purging the tax code of subsid ~ Charles Wheelan
Fuel Price Hike quotes by Charles Wheelan
We don't need a fuel that's cleaner, we need a fuel that happens to be cleaner, but is half the price of oil. ~ Vinod Khosla
Fuel Price Hike quotes by Vinod Khosla
Along with our over-giving is our own conditional giving pattern, which can fuel so much of our resentment and feelings of "victimization" by the people to whom we are giving. We may be completely unaware of our expectations of those we assist, and our own anger and resentment may catch us off guard. This is why our martyrdom is so hard on those around us. They are aware of the price we are exacting, even when we are in denial about our own motives and expectations. ~ Mary Crocker Cook
Fuel Price Hike quotes by Mary Crocker Cook
Yeah, well," Nico said, "not giving people a second thought ... that can be dangerous." "Dude, I'm trying to say thank you." Nico laughed without humor. "I'm trying to say you don't need to. Now I need to finish this, if you could give me some space?" "Yeah. Yeah, okay." Percy stepped back while Nico took up the slack on his ropes. He slipped them over his shoulders as if the Athena Parthenos were a giant backpack. Percy couldn't help feeling a little hurt, being told to take a hike. Then again, Nico had been through a lot. The guy had survived in Tartarus on his own. Percy understood firsthand just how much strength that must have taken. Annabeth walked up the hill to join them. She took Percy's hand, which made him feel better. "Good luck," she told Nico. ~ Rick Riordan
Fuel Price Hike quotes by Rick Riordan
As much as I am a huge soccer fan, music just kills it when it comes to importance. I could go to a desert island without a football and survive happily, but if I had to go without music, I think I'd end up killing myself. It fuels my soul. It always has. ~ Joe Elliott
Fuel Price Hike quotes by Joe Elliott
We've got the emPHAsis on the wrong sylLAble when it comes to crime in this country. The FBI says burglary and robbery cost U.S. taxpayers $3.8 billion annually. Securities fraud alone costs four times that. And securities fraud is nothing to the cost of oil spills, price-fixing, and dangerous or defective products. Fraud by health-care corporations alone costs us between $100 billion and $400 billion a year. No three-strikes-and-you're-out for these guys. Remember the S&L scandal? $500 billion. ~ Molly Ivins
Fuel Price Hike quotes by Molly Ivins
The price an artist pays for doing what he wants is that he has to do it. ~ William S. Burroughs
Fuel Price Hike quotes by William S. Burroughs
If the price of everything is going down, that's going to include wages as well. People will have an incentive to sit on their cash and not spend it. ~ Paul Krugman
Fuel Price Hike quotes by Paul Krugman
Like medicine (architecture) must move from the curative to the preventive. ~ Cedric Price
Fuel Price Hike quotes by Cedric Price
Fuel your body.

Think about your environment as an ecosystem. If there's pollution, you'll feel the toxic side effects; if you're in the fresh air of the mountains, you'll feel alive. You'd be surprised at how many of the foods that we eat actually sap our body of fuel. Just look at three quick examples: soda, potato chips, and hamburgers. I'm not a hard-liner who says that you should never consume these things, but this kind of steady diet will make it harder for your body to help you. Instead, look at the foods that are going to give you energy. Choose food that's water soluble and easier for your body to break down, which gives you maximum nutrition with minimal effort. Look at a cucumber: it's practically water and it takes no energy to consume, but it's packed with nutrients. Green for me is the key.
We overeat and undernourish ourselves way too much. When you eat bad food, your body will feel bad and then you will feel bad. It's all connected. I drink green juice every day and eat huge salads. I am also a big believer in lean protein to feed and fuel the muscles--I might even have a chicken breast for breakfast.
Growing up, because I danced every single day, I would basically eat anything I wanted and I wouldn't gain any weight. I would eat anything and everything trying to put on a few pounds, but it never worked--and my skin was terrible as a result of it. We'd blame it on the sweat from the dancing, but I never connected it to what I ate. As I go ~ Derek Hough
Fuel Price Hike quotes by Derek Hough
Elyon was restoring the Great Romance. Teeleh had stolen his first love, but now Justin had reclaimed her. The price had been his own life. He'd taken her disease on himself and he'd drowned with it, inviting them to embrace his invitation to the Romance by following him into the lake to drown with him. To live as his bride! ~ Ted Dekker
Fuel Price Hike quotes by Ted Dekker
We are like tenant farmers chopping down the fence around our house for fuel when we should be using Nature's inexhaustible sources of energy
sun, wind and tide. 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. ~ Thomas A. Edison
Fuel Price Hike quotes by Thomas A. Edison
When the corporation's investment capital becomes impatient for growth, good money becomes bad money because it triggers a subsequent cascade of inevitable incorrect decisions. Innovators who seek funding for the disruptive innovations that could ultimately fuel the company's growth with a high probability of success now find that their trial balloons get shot down because they can't get big enough fast enough. Managers of most disruptive businesses can't credibly project that the business will become very big very fast, because new-market disruptions need to compete against nonconsumption and must follow an emergent strategy process. Compelling them to project big numbers forces them to declare a strategy that confidently crams the innovation into a large, existing, and obvious market whose size can be statistically substantiated. This means competing against consumption. ~ Clayton M Christensen
Fuel Price Hike quotes by Clayton M Christensen
We were two throats and one eye and we had no price. ~ Toni Morrison
Fuel Price Hike quotes by Toni Morrison
The point is that his genuine aim, the unconscious aim concealed behind all his conscious activities, remains the same: to use his power to blot out the humiliations inflicted on him in childhood and denied by him ever since. But this aim can never be achieved. The past cannot be expunged, nor can one come to terms with it, as long as one denies the suffering it involved. Accordingly, a dictator's efforts to achieve that aim are doomed to failure. Compulsive repetition will always reassert itself. And an endless succession of victims is forced to pay the price. With ~ Alice Miller
Fuel Price Hike quotes by Alice Miller
The students who feel alienated by current systems of standardization and testing may walk out the door, and it's left to them and others to pay the price in unemployment benefits and other social programs. These problems are not accidental by-products of standardized education; they are a structural feature of these systems. They were designed to process people according to particular conceptions of talent and economic need and were bound to produce winners and losers in just those terms. And they do. Many of these "externalities" could be avoided if education genuinely gave all students the same opportunities to explore their real capabilities and create their best lives. ~ Ken Robinson
Fuel Price Hike quotes by Ken Robinson
Most people try to get rich by being cheap and the price for that is that you live cheap and there is so much money out there; why would you want to live cheap? ~ Robert Kiyosaki
Fuel Price Hike quotes by Robert Kiyosaki
I am bundled in the warmth of

the price and the purchase, and its

solid completion, as in royal robes--

marvelous these royal robes!

These robes are authority that can

decree that trouble, sin of my heart,

and the deceptive obstruction of will

and reasoning

be sent to banishment. ~ Quinesia Johnson
Fuel Price Hike quotes by Quinesia Johnson
Honor is like the eye, which cannot suffer the least impurity without damage. It is a precious stone, the price of which is lessened by a single flaw. ~ Jacques-Benigne Bossuet
Fuel Price Hike quotes by Jacques-Benigne Bossuet
We need a price on carbon that accurately reflects its real costs on our society and our wellbeing. ~ Katharine Hayhoe
Fuel Price Hike quotes by Katharine Hayhoe
The reality is that business and investment spending are the true leading indicators of the economy and the stock market. If you want to know where the stock market is headed, forget about consumer spending and retail sales figures. Look to business spending, price inflation, interest rates, and productivity gains. ~ Mark Skousen
Fuel Price Hike quotes by Mark Skousen
So this was it, she thought. So many times she'd wondered. True sacrifice was the surrender of one sacred thing in favor of keeping another. No matter how prudent or cautious one was, in the end something precious was lost. Whether the claim was in the name of family or duty or honor or truth, it exacted a terrible price. To her dismay, she did not feel the pride or pleasure that Bledig had claimed when he spoke of the sacrifices he had made for her and their children. For Alwen, sacrifice brought grief and guilt, and an unbearable sense of uncertainty. ~ Roberta Trahan
Fuel Price Hike quotes by Roberta Trahan
I was raised on the struggle of elders - iron collars, severed feet, the rifle of dirty Harriet, and down through the years, the Muslims and regal Malcolm. But mostly what I saw around me was rank dishonor: cable and Atari plugged into every room, juvenile parenting, niggers sporting kicks with price tags that looked like mortgage bills. The Conscious among us knew the whole race was going down, that we'd freed ourselves from slavery and Jim Crow but not the great shackling of minds. The hoppers had no picture of the larger world. We thought all our battles were homegrown and personal, but, like an evil breeze at our back, we felt invisible hands at work, like someone else was still tugging at levers and pulling strings. ~ Ta-Nehisi Coates
Fuel Price Hike quotes by Ta-Nehisi Coates
Because the financial power of the fossil-fuel industry is so great it can, and has, delayed any real action of the climate issues almost everywhere. ~ Bill McKibben
Fuel Price Hike quotes by Bill McKibben
The Jews supplied the contacts for international trade, sometimes in competition to the Venetians, the word Ghetto itself comes from the Venetians, it was an Island in the Venice lagoon, and they had their own part of Corfu town, ~ Maurice Price
Fuel Price Hike quotes by Maurice Price
Most people struggle with life balance simply because they haven't paid the price to decide what is really important to them. ~ Stephen Covey
Fuel Price Hike quotes by Stephen Covey
Audry Hepburn on the cover of The Nun's Story was staring up at me from my unmade bed. Her hair was hidden by her snow-white wimple; her big eyes looked frightened.
"What are you looking at?" I said. "Fuck you." It was the first time I'd ever said the word. I felt a brief shiver of power.
Then I sat back on the bed and sobbed. Dolores Price: Lady of Sorrow. ~ Wally Lamb
Fuel Price Hike quotes by Wally Lamb
The price of being a nice guy is too high - much too high - in terms of the system of justice. ~ Jed S. Rakoff
Fuel Price Hike quotes by Jed S. Rakoff
You can become a genius simply by not going too easy on yourself - Ignoring all the desires of your body and self. You must be strong enough to say "NO" to whatever you don't like. ~ Mwanandeke Kindembo
Fuel Price Hike quotes by Mwanandeke Kindembo
We live in a time when the values of courage and honesty, particularly for women writers, equate to confessing only the darkest, most painful parts of our lives. "How brave you are," my students say to each other over workshop tables, "to expose that." Meaning, to uncover this family secret or that heinous act or to openly confront the demons of alcoholism, promiscuity, substance abuse, incest, infidelity, illness, betrayal ... I have also wrestled many dark angels, and continue to do so, so I acknowledge the price such writing exacts. But more and more I have come to respect the honesty and courage required to recognize the bright angels when they appear in our memory, and to allow them equal space in our narratives. ~ Rebecca McClanahan
Fuel Price Hike quotes by Rebecca McClanahan
Dead by her hand. All dead. The price of her freedom? Chung-Cha's soul. ~ David Baldacci
Fuel Price Hike quotes by David Baldacci
It took many years to accept that fantasy is the fuel for my storytelling passion, and without that, I really am a hack, writing for money or approval rather than for the pure delight of storytelling. ~ Kelley Armstrong
Fuel Price Hike quotes by Kelley Armstrong
The death of a single human being is too heavy a price for the vindication of any principle, however sacred. ~ Daniel Berrigan
Fuel Price Hike quotes by Daniel Berrigan
You see, the Greenhouse Effect is a direct result of burning fossil or old carbon fuels. ~ Jack Herer
Fuel Price Hike quotes by Jack Herer
Differentiate with value or die with price. ~ Jeffrey Gitomer
Fuel Price Hike quotes by Jeffrey Gitomer
Market prices for stocks fluctuate at great amplitudes around intrinsic value but, over the long term, intrinsic value is virtually always reflected at some point in market price. ~ Warren Buffett
Fuel Price Hike quotes by Warren Buffett
If God offers the world for sale, how much will you pay for it? What is the price of your own destruction? ~ Felix Wantang
