In honor of Earth Day, lets look at what some famous “Climate Papas” have to say about climate change and protecting our planet. We, like you, feel that Earth Day should be every day. But this time of year, when we celebrate International Water Day, Earth Day, and Arbor Day all within a month, it does make many of us stop and focus a bit more, on what each of us is doing to make our world a more sustainable place.
QUOTES BY FAMOUS CLIMATE PAPAS:
All across the world, in every kind of environment and region known to man, increasingly dangerous weather patterns and devastating storms are abruptly putting an end to the long-running debate over whether or not climate change is real. Not only is it real, it’s here, and its effects are giving rise to a frighteningly new global phenomenon: the man-made natural disaster.
Barack Obama (President)
I’d say the chances are about 50-50 that humanity will be extinct or nearly extinct within 50 years. Weapons of mass destruction, disease, I mean this global warming is scaring the living daylights out of me.
Ted Turner (Businessman and Philanthropist)
First, I worry about climate change. It’s the only thing that I believe has the power to fundamentally end the march of civilization, as we know it, and make a lot of the other efforts that we’re making irrelevant and impossible.
Bill Clinton (Former President)
Oh Beautiful for smoggy skies, insecticided grain, for strip-mined mountain’s majesty above the asphalt plain.
America, America, man sheds his waste on thee, and hides the pines with billboard signs, from sea to oily sea.
George Carlin (Comedian)
We could have saved the Earth but we were too damned cheap.
Kurt Vonnegut, Jr. (American Writer)
It is horrifying that we have to fight our own government to save the environment.
Ansel Adams (American Photographer)
Discovery Channel: The World is Awesome!
Humankind has not woven the web of life. We are but one thread within it. Whatever we do to the web, we do to ourselves. All things are bound together. All things connect.
Chief Seattle (Native American Chief 1855)
When one tugs at a single thing in nature, he finds it attached to the rest of the world.
John Muir (American Naturalist 1800’s)
I believe the biggest obstacle to solving global warming is the role of money in politics, the undue sway of special interests.
Dr. James Hansen (Climate Scientist)
Don’t give up. I believe in you all. A person’s a person no matter how small.
Dr. Seuss (Writer)
One day the earth will weep, she will beg for her life, she will cry with tears of blood. You will make a choice, if you will help her or let her die, and when she dies, you will die too.
John Hollow Horn (Native American 1932)
The warnings about global warming have been extremely clear for a long time. We are facing a global climate crisis. It is deepening. We are entering a period of consequences.
Al Gore (Climate Change Activist)
Only when the last tree has been cut down; only when the last river has been poisoned; only when the last fish has been caught; only then will you find that money cannot be eaten.
