“The American public, according to research, would like to break with our dependence on oil — they think that it is dirty and expensive, and that it impairs their health and our nation’s security. They also believe that it is technically possible to replace most oil with better fuels, and they are correct.” - Carl Pope, Climate of Hope (pg. 149)

“Improving the efficiency of buildings is not as sexy as saving a rain forest. You don’t see many celebrities dedicating their philanthropy to it. But the fact is, making the biggest possible dent in greenhouse gas emissions — and in the pollution that causes death and disease — requires focusing on buildings. And it’s something that people can do in their own hometowns.” - Michael Bloomberg, Climate of Hope (pg 109)

“The cost of clean energy has plummeted in price in recent years. The U.S. Department of Energy reports that from 2008 to 2016, the costs dropped 41 percent for wind, 64 percent for solar, and as much as 94 percent for LED lights. Two- thirds of new electricity capacity installed in 2015 was wind or solar. The drop in price follows a trend that occurs as any new technology improves and advances.” — Michael Bloomberg, Climate of Hope (pg 83)

“All the data indicates that we’re already living in times of more turbulent climate — and that if we do nothing, there’s far worse to come. We have the opportunity to avoid these harmful effects, while also immediately improving the lives of millions of people. We’d be crazy not to embrace it.” — Michael Bloomberg, Climate of Hope (pg 71)

“In real economic terms, today’s wind and solar electrons are the cheapest electrons the world has ever known. Those who develop them most intensively will make a great deal of money, and the challenge will be how to divide up the good news, not share the pain.” Climate of Hope— Carl Pope (pg 104)

“The market operates on the basis of consumer demand, and the fact is that when given the choice, consumers, both Democrats and Republicans, would rather buy clean energy than dirty energy. The reason is simple: They do not want the air they breathe and the water they drink to be polluted with toxic chemicals.” — Climate of Hope, Michael Bloomberg (pg 86)

“As new cities emerge, we have the advantage of knowing how, with smarter regulation and better technology, to make them climate-friendly and even carbon-neutral. ... If we’re going to stop climate change, we must make smart investments in how we plan cities.” Climate of Hope— Bloomberg (pg 116) Visit www.climateofhope.com for more 🌎 @bloombergdotorg
