Text Quotes
The natural gas industry has worked long and hard to smear Josh Fox, the director of ‘Gasland,’ and has failed.  (Jeff Goodell Quotes) Ever since the collapse of cap and trade legislation and the realization that President Obama is unlikely to ever utter the words ‘climate change’ in public again, much less use the bully pulpit to prepare the nation for the catastrophic risks of inaction, the movement has been in a funk.  (Jeff Goodell Quotes) One of the big questions in the climate change debate: Are humans any smarter than frogs in a pot? If you put a frog in a pot and slowly turn up the heat, it won’t jump out. Instead, it will enjoy the nice warm bath until it is cooked to death. We humans seem to be doing pretty much the same thing.  (Jeff Goodell Quotes) For better or worse, the bulk of coal industry jobs are in Appalachia - and when that coal is gone, so are the jobs.  (Jeff Goodell Quotes) The idea that human beings have taken a few steps closer toward asserting control over the Earth’s climate is likely to strike you as a really bad idea.  (Jeff Goodell Quotes) In any crass political calculation, drilling for oil will always win more votes than putting a price on carbon. But if I recall what I was taught in fifth-grade American government class, we elect presidents to do more than crass political calculations.  (Jeff Goodell Quotes) One of the pillars of backward thinking in America is the idea that you can have jobs or you can have clean air and water, but you can’t have both. That myth has been busted a thousand times, but still it lives on.  (Jeff Goodell Quotes) When it comes to climate and energy, Gates is a radical consumerist. In his view, energy consumption is good - it just needs to be clean energy  (Jeff Goodell Quotes) Is it in our national interest to overheat the planet? That’s the question Obama faces in deciding whether to approve Keystone XL, a 2,000-mile-long pipeline that will bring 500,000 barrels of tar-sand oil from Canada to oil refineries on the Gulf of Mexico  (Jeff Goodell Quotes) Not since the days of George W. Bush’s ‘Clear Skies’ and ‘Healthy Forests’ initiatives has America been presented with a project as cravenly corporate and backward-looking as the Keystone XL pipeline  (Jeff Goodell Quotes) In recent years, America’s wealthiest man has begun to tackle energy issues in a major way, investing millions in everything from high-capacity batteries to machines that can scrub carbon dioxide out of the air. With a personal fortune of $50 billion, Gates has the resources to give his favorite solutions a major boost.  (Jeff Goodell Quotes) Climate change is a global issue - from the point of view of the Earth’s climate, a molecule of CO2 emitted in Bejing is the same as a molecule emitted in Sydney.  (Jeff Goodell Quotes) Despite all the progress climate scientists have made in understanding the risks we run by loading the atmosphere with CO2, the world is still as addicted to fossil fuels as ever.  (Jeff Goodell Quotes) By burning fossil fuels, we are already dumping 30 billion tons of CO2 into the atmosphere every year, which has a profound effect on the climate. So, like it or not, we’re already messing with a system we don’t understand.  (Jeff Goodell Quotes) Obama wants to be thought of as the president who freed us from foreign oil. But if he doesn’t show some political courage, he may well be remembered as the president who cooked the planet.  (Jeff Goodell Quotes) Drill everything, mine everything, roll back regulations, tweak the science, expedite permits. Sound familiar? The Republicans offer up more 19th-Century solutions to our 21st-Century energy problems.  (Jeff Goodell Quotes) Geoengineering - the deliberate, large-scale manipulation of the earth’s climate to offset global warming - is a nightmare fix for climate change.  (Jeff Goodell Quotes) The relevant questions now are: How do we move beyond coal? How do we bring new jobs to the coal fields and retrain coal miners for other work? How do we inspire entrepreneurialism and self-reliance in people whose lives have been dependent on the paternalistic coal industry?  (Jeff Goodell Quotes) If you are interested enough in the climate crisis to read this post, you probably know that 2 degrees Centigrade of warming (or 3.6 degrees Fahrenheit) is the widely acknowledged threshold for dangerous climate change.  (Jeff Goodell Quotes) The first sign of whether Obama is serious about confronting the climate crisis will be revealed by how he organizes the White House.  (Jeff Goodell Quotes) Americans don’t pay much attention to environmental issues, because they aren’t sexy. I mean, cleaning up coal plants and reining in outlaw frackers is hugely important work, but it doesn’t get anybody’s pulse racing.  (Jeff Goodell Quotes) Nobody disputes that cheap natural gas would be a good thing for the economy. The question is, is this a sustainable new development that can be counted on for decades to come, or simply a ‘bubble’ brought on by a land grab and drilling frenzy?  (Jeff Goodell Quotes) You gotta love Rick Perry’s swagger. The Texas Governor is out there in the Iowa cornfields, unabashedly going to toe-to-toe with President Obama, doing his best to instantly cast himself as the big dog in the Republican pack  (Jeff Goodell Quotes) Subsidies are hugely important; they represent America’s de facto energy policy  (Jeff Goodell Quotes) Compared to coal, which generates almost half the electricity in the United States, natural gas is indeed a cleaner, less polluting fuel. But compared to, say, solar, it’s filthy. And of course there is nothing renewable about natural gas  (Jeff Goodell Quotes) In reality, Republicans have long been at war with clean energy. They have ridiculed investments in solar and wind power, bashed energy-efficiency standards, attacked state moves to promote renewable energy and championed laws that would enshrine taxpayer subsidies for fossil fuels while stripping them from wind and solar  (Jeff Goodell Quotes) In the Arctic, things are already getting freaky. Temperatures have warmed three times faster than the global average  (Jeff Goodell Quotes) It may be too late for West Virginia to save itself from the ravages of Big Coal. But it’s not too late for America  (Jeff Goodell Quotes) So if you want to know how Exxon Mobil can make $10 billion profit in 90 days, just look around. The whole world was built for them  (Jeff Goodell Quotes) This Dewdrop World is a beautiful, courageous, intimate film about love and loss. It may also be the deepest meditation on climate change that I’ve ever seen  (Jeff Goodell Quotes)
