James Cameron

Our dependence on fossil fuels amounts to global pyromania, and the only fire extinguisher we have at our disposal is renewable energy.      

Hermann Scheer

We're clearly coming to the end of the fossil fuel era. We have the technology to shift to renewable energy, we have the will of the people. The only thing that's keeping us back is the fossil fuel industry's hold on our political system. That's what we need to change.      

Mark Ruffalo

The notion that moving toward renewable energy will kill jobs is an absurdity on its face.

It is the opposite of the case; a new energy paradigm will create opportunity.     

Marshall Herskovitz

Martin Hullin

The cost of renewable energy is largely a function of initial investment cost.... Once a renewable energy facility is built, at least with fixed-rate financing, the cost of power from that facility is fixed throughout its lifetime. Not so for fossil fuels, where the cost of power will vary in the future with fuel prices.     

Jose Amaya

Renewable energy is far more labor-intensive than fossil fuel production.

Jay Inslee

Renewable energy is not more expensive than fossil fuel when you factor in life-cycle costs.     

Piyush Goyal

Some solutions are relatively simple and would provide economic benefits: implementing measures to conserve energy, putting a price on carbon through taxes and cap-and-trade and shifting from fossil fuels to clean and renewable energy sources.
