Quotes

"We will clearly have our work cut out for us in Lima" he said, adding that an adequate deal would likely not be reached unless developed nations were willing to give details of financial and technical support...
"Our strong bilateral relations provide a good basis for cooperation on climate change issues" an agreement signed Tuesday read
"...humans have the power - intentionally or not - to transform our planet Earth for good or for ill. At this moment in history, we have catapulted ourselves to a crossroads of two possible paths for mankind. We have developed the technology and amassed the financial capability to go either way. The direction we take cannot result from inertia but rather intentional choice...This choice will be informed by our technology, our financial systems and our policy, but it must also be indisputably steered by the overarching moral compass innate to all of us."
