“I would say the biggest handicap we have right now is some nutcases in our country that don’t believe in global warming. I think they are going to change their position because of pressure from individuals, because the evidence of the ravages of global warming is already there.”

 

Toure 2

“I can only do so many fun, awestruck stories about the weather and these extraordinary weather events without saying this is because of climate change. When we act like all this is fun, you know what we’re doing? We’re dancing on the deck of the Titanic.”

Deborah Feyerick

“And you know, talk about something else is falling from the sky. And that is an asteroid. What’s coming our way? Is this an effect of perhaps global warming or just some meteoric occasion? “

Christie Hefner

“Yes, last year we hit a record number of murders from guns [in Chicago]. And this year we are already outpacing last year’s numbers. Now, there are contributing factors that are not under anybody’s control and may seem odd, but it is factually true. One of them is actually the weather. There is a dramatic increase in gun violence when it is warmer. And we are having this climate change effect that is driving that.”

Chris Hayes

“Climate change is the biggest governing challenge we face. It’s the biggest governing challenge I think we’ve ever faced.”

Al Gore 3

“Let me add if I could briefly. As Van [Jones] said, it’s the intersection of dirty energy and dirty money. And we can’t forget it’s creating dirty weather because the extreme climate events that the scientific community has been telling us are connected to global warming are getting worse. We had 12 events last year here in the U.S. that cost more than a billion dollars that were connected to climate. And it’s getting worse.

And now, we have this extensive drought in big areas of the country, dramatic floods, stronger storms — completely consistent with what people have been predicting. And I know that there are lot of people that say, ‘ah, don’t talk about that because that – you know – people roll their eyes.’ Well this is our future.”

Alexandra Steele

“It really is [such a strange spring]. That’s kind of the climate change we are seeing. You know, extremes are kind of ruling the roost and really what we are seeing, more become the norm.”

Al Gore 2

“They pay pseudo-scientists to pretend to be scientists to put out the message: This climate thing, it’s nonsense. Man-made CO2 doesn’t trap heat. It may be volcanoes. Bullshit! It may be sun spots. Bullshit! It’s not getting warmer. Bullshit!”
