CLIMATE JUSTICE QUOTES
Climate Justice in BC
Lessons for Transformation
www.teachclimatejustice.ca
“For the first time in human history,
science has told us that human
activity is dramatically altering the
destiny of our planet.”
Steven Chu
Former US Secretary of Energy
“We are upsetting the atmosphere
upon which all life depends… The
signs of change have accelerated
alarmingly.”
David Suzuki
Broadcaster, academic and
environmental advocate
“The issue of climate change is one
that we ignore at our own peril.”
Barack Obama
US President
“Emissions are growing much faster
than we’d thought, the absorptive
capacity of the planet is less than we’d
thought, the risks of greenhouse gases
are potentially bigger than more
cautious estimates, and the speed of
climate change seems to be faster.”
Nicholas Stern
Economist and academic
“It is the poorest of the poor in the
world, and this includes poor people
even in prosperous societies, who
are going to be the worst hit.”
Rajendra Pachauri
Chairman, Intergovernmental Panel
on Climate Change
“Long-term thinking is not radical.
What’s radical is to completely alter
the planet’s climate, to betray the
future of my generation... What’s
radical is to write off the fact that
change is within our reach.”
Anjali Appadurai
Youth advocate for climate justice
“The injustice of the whole issue of
global warming and climate change
lies in the fact that those who have
contributed nothing to its genesis
will suffer the most from its
consequences...”
Meles Zenawi
Former Prime Minister of Ethiopia
“It is the political and moral responsibility
of the world, particularly those who caused
the problem, to save small islands and
countries like Tuvalu from climate
change…”
Apisai Ielemia
Former Prime Minister of Tuvalu
“Climate change… is poised to become
the most massive human rights
violation the world has ever seen.”
Kathleen Dean Moore
Professor, Oregon State University
“Inuit are facing the beginning of a
possible end of a way of life that has
allowed us to thrive for millennia
because of the climate changes caused
by global warming…. What will be left
of our culture if this comes to pass?”
Sheila Watt-Cloutier
International Chair for Inuit
Circumpolar Council
“Those developed economies most
responsible for past and present
emissions must take the lead.”
Kofi Annan
Former United Nations Secretary-General
“If we did not take action to solve
this crisis, it could indeed threaten
the future of human civilization.
That sounds shrill. It sounds hard to
accept. I believe it’s deadly accurate.
But again, we can solve it.”
Al Gore
Former US Vice President
“What is needed is nothing short
of an energy revolution.”
International Energy Agency
