Climate Quotes May 2016
Energy Secretary Ernest Moniz says he doesn’t think a future president will be able to undo President Obama’s climate work.

Moniz dismissed presumptive GOP presidential nominee Donald Trump’s call to renegotiate or ignore the Paris climate deal

Trump:
...at a minimum I will be renegotiating those agreements.,,,The deal was unfair, economically, to the United States economy."

Moniz:
...the climate deal has built-in reassessments over the next few decades, countries should use those to ramp up the greenhouse gas reduction commitments they enshrined last year in the Paris deal.

Clearly, we have essentially every country in the world having made [contributions] and are moving forward with that, But I remind you that there is, within the agreement, a mechanism for revisiting, in the sense of five-year revisits, with the idea that countries, hopefully, as costs go down for technologies, will be having greater ambition going forward as we meet increasingly stringent targets for the years and decades ahead.

The United States, under the Obama administration, has vowed to reduce its greenhouse gas emissions by 26 to 28 percent from 2005 levels by 2025.

There is something that, on reflection, many adults would surely find repugnant in the idea that they will leave their children a damaged planet that will radically affect their life possibilities.

Kiribati President Anote Tong

"…I remember I had been trying to convince him to visit Kiribati and he did in 2011. He came to Kiribati and I remember he went to visit one of these communities that was flooded every time there is very high tides and there was this young boy who stepped up to the Secretary General and said Mr. Secretary General, you are a very important man you know, is there something that you can do to ensure I will have a future, that I will have a home. And the Secretary General came back and he said Mr. President I have been listening to you at the General Assembly but I never truly understood what it was you trying to communicate but now I do and I feel and I understand I would do everything that I can”
