    "Climate security has always been one of our core areas. Today you’re going to hear all about the science and the economic impacts. But I’m here to talk about climate change, and how it affects national security here in the United States, and security worldwide."

    "I am a sixth-generation farmer from Iowa. And I say that because I believe we are on a trajectory to make improvements. Perhaps more than any other sector of the economy, farmers are dependent upon the weather, and must find ways to adapt to changes to remain productive."

    "The biggest single thing that evangelicals who care about the natural world and its degradation are doing is making a link between care of your neighbor, and care of the most poor and vulnerable among us, and the call in the Bible to care for others, and the ways in which environmental degradation harms the poor are so obvious to people today in a way that I think past generations may not have seen."

    "I am an optimist. I believe the green clean future is inevitable. It will come because it is technologically possible. And it’s economically superior. What we do in Silicon Valley is we move forward new technologies. We disrupt markets. And we replace incumbents with new, better solutions."

    "Climate instability, changing weather patterns, threaten our health and the vitality of our life-support systems. The harm to our health and well-being, associated health and social costs, will continue to mount unless we take comprehensive action."

    "We have to change the dialogue to make this, as it should be, about infrastructure, about jobs, and competing successfully in a global economy where others, like China, have seized the opening and seized the opportunity."

    "What we are seeing around the world is just a glimpse of the future – a future that could be thrust upon us because of our inability to take the appropriate actions today. We have to reduce greenhouse gas emissions to the limit at which the international community has set to 2 degrees Celsius."

    "I think farmers are in many ways the original environmentalists. While it is true that agriculture is a large source of greenhouse gas emissions, it is also just as true that, with the right innovations in agriculture, we can become one of the largest methods for reducing greenhouse gas emissions."

    "The good news is that younger evangelicals in the US really get this issue. It resonates with them. They see it as a moral imperative that we speak out because not only is it good for our own self-interest, national security here in the US, but it is also part of our faith of loving our neighbors as ourselves."
