    "Sometimes the riskiest decision you can take is to do nothing. And that is true here. We know we need to build a low-carbon, stable, sustainable energy economy. Not everyone in this room – and certainly not everyone outside this room – is convinced that the key to that is a comprehensive economic framework."

    "Imagine that you are a conservative speaking to a conservative audience about climate change. [...] We know they believe in the power of free enterprise. We know that they used to believe that America can accomplish great things when we act together. We know they’ll return to that faith, once the pain of the Great Recession is over."

    "In 2012, those impacts cost the global economy $160 billion, and $70 billion of that was covered by insurance. As experts on risk, everything we see points to the fact that climate change is something we simply cannot ignore and reducing emissions is essential."

    "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."
