Quotes

...speaker at the Rochester chapter of the Sierra Club's annual environmental forum, which was held last night at FirstFirst Unitarian Church. "The costs of action pale in comparison to the costs of inaction" Lowery said. (April 18, 2014, Rochester City Newspaper )
...Industrial growth will be an important plank of India's economic recovery. "Globally, 25 per cent of the emissions is from industry. These can be reduced by deploying best practices and technology, greater collaboration across sectors. There are immense opportunities" said Jadavpur University's Joyashree Roy, who is also an author of the IPCC report
...That's why, he notes, tackling climate change will require "directly address[ing] the multi-decade carbon emissions from China's coal fleet as it exists today and as it will exist in 2020 and 2030."
"Our record is also of interest to climate policy developments, because it opens the door to detailed comparisons between past atmospheric carbon dioxide concentrations, global temperatures, and sea levels, which has enormous value to long-term future climate projections."
