Gore: “We have the solutions now. Solar electricity, wind electricity, batteries in electric vehicles and soon electricity from renewable sources are going to be cheaper all over the world than fossil fuels. So we’re going to win this.”
On Trump: “I spent a lot of time talking directly to him. I’ve had several conversations and unfortunately, I thought he would come to his senses, but I was wrong."
"I am not aware of any such linkage, and neither are my colleagues in the negotiating team," said Ajay Mathur, one of India's top negotiators in Paris. "None of us recall any discussion in the negotiating team on any such linkage; I don't recall an offer of solar technology being discussed at all."
Alex Epstein on Fox News July 9, 2017: 'Sometimes in the world there are very destructive fads that many world leaders accept. In the 20th century we had socialism. Today we have climate catastrophism which sacrifices billions of peoples' access to affordable energy to this ideal of some perfect mythical unchanged climate.'
'I think Trump had an obligation to stand up both for Americans, but also for 3 billion energy poor people throughout the world...I think it should be called the Paris Poverty Plan, because all it really does is it makes energy more expensive.'
'If you look throughout history, a lot of movements like control over the individual. In the 20th Century it was collectivism, particularly socialism, and today there is this idea that human beings left free are going to ruin the planet. So a lot of people like the idea that their power is somehow necessary for the planet and for humanity'
'In general you have this tendency to only look at the negatives of things that people don't like, like fossil fuels. And then to only look at the positives that they do like solar and wind which are called renewables but should be called unreliables.'
