July 15th, 2010 – The voices of a new clean energy future

Politico“The Science behind Climate Science”

By James McCarthy, Lisa Graumlich, Chris Field, and James Hurrell

“Today, a large body of evidence has been collected to support the broad scientific understanding that global climate warming, as evident these last few decades, is unprecedented for the past 1000 years — and this change is due to human activities.”

“The biggest question is what choices we and our children should make about energy use. The more dependent we are on carbon-emitting energy sources, the more our climate will change.”

The Huffington Post“The Dance of Renewable Energy”

By Allan Gerson, lawyer and former Counsel to the US Delegation to the UN

“Dependency on oil also affects the ability of the West to adjust its foreign policy at will. The good news is that today the emergence of a human dimension in the quest for a more humble and sustainable lifestyle is leading to a readjustment of energy dependency on the macro-scale.” 

“The stage is set for a more graceful, less dominating dance between man and nature. All it takes is the courage to cut the habit of dependency and embrace a more natural approach. As the 2010 Assilah conference pointed out, if man makes that fateful decision the scientific and engineering know-how is there to enable him to make the leap.”

The Voices of a New Clean Energy Future is a series from individuals who understand the importance of passing comprehensive climate and clean energy legislation – business leaders, politicians, policy experts, and concerned citizens like you. EDF is proud to highlight their voices and contributions to the climate and energy debate.
