Energy Crisis Quotes By John Beddington

Energy Crisis Quotes By Daniel Yergin

A lesson in bringing about true changes of mind and heart comes from a Japanese functionary. By day, he crunched numbers that showed his country was approaching imminent energy crisis and helped to craft policy. By night, he weaved a novel in which a bureaucrat-hero helps see the country through to new energy sources. When the crisis came faster than he expected, he actually put the novel away because he did not want to make the burden of his countrymen worse. When the short-term crisis passed, he published his novel. It's phenomenal and well-timed success fueled the vision that inspired difficult change and maintained a sense of urgency. — Daniel Yergin

Energy Crisis Quotes By Bruce Lee

While it may come as a profound surprise to those of us who are in the throes of an emotional or life crisis, the fact remains that the answer to virtually all of our problems resides within us already.

Energy Crisis Quotes By Jonah Goldberg

Crisis is routinely identified as a core mechanism of fascism because it short-circuits debate and democratic deliberation. Hence all fascistic movements commit considerable energy to prolonging a heightened state of emergency. Across the West, this was the most glorious boon of World War I. — Jonah Goldberg

Energy Crisis Quotes By T. Berry Brazelton

A family's responses to crisis or to a new situation mirror those of a child. That is to say, the way a small child deals with a new challenge (for instance, learning to walk) has certain predictable stages: regression, anxiety, mastery, new energy, growth, and feedback for future achievement. These stages can also be seen in adults coping with new life events, whether positive or negative. — T. Berry Brazelton

Energy Crisis Quotes By Mitty Walters

Jessica shook her head violently. "This isn't real! This is a floating skateboard. You did not just solve the world's energy crisis. All this is, is a really neat toy." Okay, — Mitty Walters

Energy Crisis Quotes By Margaret Atwood

We're facing growing climate change, more floods, more droughts, more crisis on a planetary level, and the systems we put in place in the twentieth century are just not going to work. We've run out of stuff. Our big problems are going to be energy supplies and food supplies. This is not a right-left issue. It's a people issue, and it cuts across all our categories. — Margaret Atwood

Energy Crisis Quotes By Pope Benedict XVI

Toynbee emphasized the difference between technological-material progress and true progress, which he defined as spiritualization. He recognized that the Western world was indeed undergoing a crisis, which he attributed to the abandonment of religion for the cult of technology, nationalism, and militarism. For him this crisis had a name: secularism. If you know the cause of an illness, you can also find a cure: The religious heritage in all its forms had to be reintroduced, especially the "heritage of Western Christianity." Rather than a biologistic vision, he offered a voluntaristic one focused on the energy of creative minorities and exceptional individuals. — Pope Benedict XVI

Energy Crisis Quotes By David W. Earle

Late one night, during a toss-and-turn fretful sleep, I pondered my crisis. No solutions were on the horizon. I, again, wasted my psychic energy with prayer. Nothing. No angel on a white cloud. No rainbow's pot of gold. No way to control the people I loved. As I rolled over and put the pillow over my head attempting to block all that was negative, I silently screamed for rescue. Then, in a far away and distinct part of my brain, a small voice said, "You have to do this on your own."

I thought, "Was that the best You can do?" This god, to whom I was desperately sending burnt offerings of my own humiliation, couldn't send an avenging angel or a wise man imparting wisdom? All You can give me is this feeble message of abandonment? At that moment, I quit believing in that god. — David W. Earle

Energy Crisis Quotes By R. Buckminster Fuller

There is no energy crisis, only a crisis of ignorance. — R. Buckminster Fuller

Energy Crisis Quotes By Vida Goldstein

Protest to be effective, must be followed by resolute action and at this crisis in world history when materialistic energy aims at overthrowing spiritual energy and moral values, action needs to develop into a world crusade for the Spiritual Humanity. — Vida Goldstein

Energy Crisis Quotes By Robert Bryce

Averting the looming (pick your favorite term) catastrophe, time bomb, crisis, or emergency, requires us to hew to their worldview, one in which we humans are the problem and the Earth is the object to be saved. The biggest and most influential environmental groups routinely preach a message of doom. They regularly claim, for instance, that technology is dangerous (their opposition to nuclear and GMOs are obvious examples of this mindset) and that industrial development must be stopped in order to the save the planet. However, the painful paradox is that they are aiming to stop many of the innovations that are helping to improve the environment and raise the living standards of millions of people. They are also promoting energy policies that would be ruinous for the environment they say they want to protect. — Robert Bryce

Energy Crisis Quotes By R. Lee Wrights

The greatest danger facing our nation isn't terrorism, global warming or the energy crisis. It is out-of-control, unbridled government spending. — R. Lee Wrights

Energy Crisis Quotes By Frances Beinecke

Our nation has abundant clean energy resources, and tapping them will generate jobs, make the air safer to breathe, and tackle climate change - the greatest environmental crisis of our time. — Frances Beinecke

Energy Crisis Quotes By Richard Eberhart

Poetry is a natural energy resource of our country. It has no energy crisis, possessing a potential that will last as long as the country. Its power is equal to that of any country in the world. — Richard Eberhart

Energy Crisis Quotes By Sonya Huber

I will be living with chronic pain for the rest of my life. I don't have the mobility, energy or life options I used to have. I work hard to manage the pain, and I want the medical system to be a respectful and effective partner, not a jailer. The opioid crisis is not my doing. — Sonya Huber

Energy Crisis Quotes By Wally Lamb

Depression was, in some ways, a crisis of energy. I had heard her say that before; we were in reruns. — Wally Lamb

Energy Crisis Quotes By Albert A. Bartlett

We must realize that growth is but an adolescent phase of life which stops when physical maturity is reached. If growth continues in the period of maturity it is called obesity or cancer. Prescribing growth as the cure for the energy crisis has all the logic of prescribing increasing quantities of food as a remedy for obesity. — Albert A. Bartlett

Energy Crisis Quotes By Jodie Foster

I make movies about people in spiritual crisis because it's a way for me to spend the time, the energy, the focus and the obsession to come to terms with my own spiritual crisis. — Jodie Foster

Energy Crisis Quotes By Wendell Berry

Under the rule of the "free market" ideology, we have gone through two decades of an energy crisis without an effective energy policy. Because of an easy and thoughtless reliance on imported oil, we have no adequate policy for the conservation of gasoline and other petroleum products. We have no adequate policy for the development or use of other, less harmful forms of energy. We have no adequate system of public transportation. — Wendell Berry

Energy Crisis Quotes By Jimmy Carter

This intolerable dependence on foreign oil threatens our economic independence and the very security of our nation. The energy crisis is real. It is worldwide. It is a clear and present danger to our nation. These are facts and we simply must face them. — Jimmy Carter

We have seen the Democrat solution to an energy crisis; it's called California. — J. C. Watts

Energy Crisis Quotes By Steven Johnson

In other words, a serious crisis of nonrenewable energy resources is likely to accelerate the urbanization trend, not derail it. — Steven Johnson

Energy Crisis Quotes By Ian McEwan

As in Northern Ireland, children, shoppers, ordinary working men were all suitable targets. Bombs in department stores and pubs would have even more impact in the context of the widely anticipated social breakdown brought on by industrial decline, high unemployment, rising inflation and an energy crisis. — Ian McEwan

Energy Crisis Quotes By Russell E. Train

We can and should seize upon the energy crisis as a good excuse and great opportunity for making some very fundamental changes that we should be making anyhow for other reasons. — Russell E. Train

Energy Crisis Quotes By Jane Byrne

If for no other reason than the energy crisis now facing this country, the federal government should be eager to become partners with us in rebuilding our city. — Jane Byrne

Energy Crisis Quotes By Stanislaw Lem

Above the podium stood a decorated board showing the agenda for the day. The first item of business was the world urban crisis, the second - the ecology crisis, the third - the air pollution crisis, the fourth - the energy crisis, the fifth - the food crisis. Then adjournment. — Stanislaw Lem

Energy Crisis Quotes By Peter Diamandis

I'm not saying we don't have our set of problems - climate crisis, species extinction, water and energy shortage - we surely do. [But] ultimately we knock them down. — Peter Diamandis

Energy Crisis Quotes By Kilroy J. Oldster

No one wants to occupy a black hole of sadness and despair or slip on the tight rope that separates sanity from insanity, and reside in a vortex devoid of reality. I entered the world as a freeman and desire to escape a state of existential vertigo. I yearn to discover a synthesizing spirit of my being and hold my head high, free of doubt, and devoid of fear. I wish to foment the cerebral energy to stave off premature destruction and forevermore blunt an intolerable state of anguish. — Kilroy J. Oldster

Energy Crisis Quotes By Lois Capps

In reality drilling is the slowest, dirtiest, and most expensive way to solve our energy crisis. — Lois Capps

Energy Crisis Quotes By Bernie Sanders

Every candidate running for president has got to answer the following very simple question: At a time when we need to address the planetary crisis of climate change, and transform our energy system away from fossil fuels and into energy efficiency and sustainability, should we continue to give $135 billion in tax breaks and subsidies over the next decade to fossil fuel companies? — Bernie Sanders

Energy Crisis Quotes By Hunter Lovins

If we use resources productively and take to heart the lessons learned from coping with the energy crisis, we face a future confronted only, as Pogo, once said, by insurmountable opportunities. The many crises facing us should be seen, then, not as threats, but as chances to remake the future so it serves all beings. — Hunter Lovins

Energy Crisis Quotes By Frosty Wooldridge

Overpopulation in the United States will become THE single greatest issue facing Americans in the 21st century. We either solve it proactively or nature will solve it brutally for us via water shortages, energy crisis, air pollution, gridlock, species extinction and worse. — Frosty Wooldridge

Energy Crisis Quotes By Andrew Cuomo

There is energy and power in a crisis. — Andrew Cuomo

Energy Crisis Quotes By Kris Kidd

I am the cause of the energy crisis. — Kris Kidd

Energy Crisis Quotes By Jonathan Franzen

The novelist has more and more to say to readers who have less and less time to read: where to find the energy to engage a culture in crisis when the crisis consists in the impossibility of engaging with the culture? — Jonathan Franzen

Energy Crisis Quotes By Barry Commoner

The environmental crisis arises from a fundamental fault: our systems of production - in industry, agriculture, energy and transportation - essential as they are, make people sick and die. — Barry Commoner

Energy Crisis Quotes By Hillary Clinton

Never waste a good crisis ... Don't waste it when it can have a very positive impact on climate change and energy security. — Hillary Clinton

Energy Crisis Quotes By David J. C. MacKay

If all the ineffective ideas for solving the energy crisis were laid end to end, they would reach to the moon and back — David J. C. MacKay

Energy Crisis Quotes By Wenonah Hauter

We can make these changes if we are willing to unite and stand together. The road to a sustainable future is clear, and the technologies are ready and cost-efficient. The only thing holding us back is the lack of political will. And with the crisis at hand, this is no excuse for failing to fight for the future we want for generations to come. We must move forward fearlessly to build a mass movement with the political power necessary to create a truly sustainable energy future. We must do this - it's a matter of life and death. — Wenonah Hauter

Energy Crisis Quotes By Pope John Paul II

The gradual depletion of the ozone layer and the related "greenhouse effect" has now reached crisis proportions as a consequence of industrial growth, massive urban concentrations and vastly increased energy needs. Industrial waste, the burning of fossil fuels, unrestricted deforestation, the use of certain types of herbicides, coolants and propellants: all of these are known to harm the atmosphere and environment. — Pope John Paul II

Energy Crisis Quotes By Scott McClellan

We continue to go from crisis to crisis, whether it is electricity or whether it is gas prices. We need comprehensive solutions, not patchwork crisis management, .. We wouldn't be in this situation today if Senate Democrats weren't holding up the national energy plan that the president proposed back in May of 2001. — Scott McClellan
