- Al Gore

Been Shrinking

The conversation on global warming has been stalled because a shrinking group of denialists fly into a rage when it's mentioned.

- Al Gore

Forest Frequency

Even as global warming increases the frequency of El Nino and the Atlantic event, their effects are being amplified by the annual loss of an area of rain forest the size of New Jersey. Less rain falls, and the water runs into the rivers instead of being sucked up by the fungus filaments and tree roots.

- Alex Shoumatoff

Life Experience

People in all walks of life, and especially business, do not want to experience the collapse of cities like New York along with global finance and economy in chaos, but this is what business faces if we continue to attribute climate change to fossil fuels alone.

- Allan Savory

Rough Saw

When I saw the rough cuts of 'The Village of Peace,' I was immediately intrigued and wanted to share this story on the global stage.

- Amar'e Stoudemire

Husband Young

- Amy Robach

Country Southern

Al Qaeda's vision of global jihad doesn't resonate in the rugged highlands and windswept deserts of southern Afghanistan. Instead, the major concern throughout much of the country is intensely local: personal safety.

Change Planet

I believe global warming and climate change are real threats to our planet.

Education About

By now, it seems as if everyone has already read Thomas L. Friedman's 'The World Is Flat: A Brief History of the Twenty-First Century.' It changed the way we think about global business, competitiveness and the implication for far-flung economies, governments, education and more.

- Andrew Ross Sorkin

Community Existence

Until Systers came into existence, the notion of a global 'community of women in computer science' did not exist.

- Anita Borg

I think I'm a global citizen. My parents came from China, were educated in France and emigrated to the United States. And I think that opened up my mind to be able to live and work anywhere.

- Anna Sui

Product Making

I am undoubtedly a 100 percent Bollywood product, but my heart truly lies in making music for the world and taking India global.

- Armaan Malik

Concert Scale

The difference between what all the people can do individually and the global consumption of nonrenewable resources is huge. The tension is... what will it take to get people to act in concert? There isn't any additive solution to the problem. It will be both governmental and social because that's the scale of the problem.

- Clay Shirky

Year Investments

Europe is kind of fragmented. Africa is nascent; we've made a few investments, including four in Egypt. I visit 50-60 cities and 20-25 countries a year. The intent is to be a global fund, which takes time and prioritization.

- Dave McClure

Another Our

We really need to kick the carbon habit and stop making our energy from burning things. Climate change is also really important. You can wreck one rainforest then move, drain one area of resources and move onto another, but climate change is global.

- David Attenborough

Financial Injustice

Well, Marx is having a comeback. I hear him mentioned a lot in terms of the global financial situation and the general sense of injustice out there. A lot of economic experts in America refer to him without actually using the M word, but he's around.

- David Byrne

Average About

Now, I do not, on any level, possess the expertise to argue about the science of anthropological global warming. Nor do you, most likely. This certainly doesn't mean an average citizen has the duty to do the lock step.

- David Harsanyi

Performing Which

And each of these perspectives comes to the same conclusion, which is that our global economy is out of control and performing contrary to basic principles of market economics.

- David Korten

Winners About

Global competition is about winners and losers.

- David Korten

Going Big

I rarely ever put my head above the rampart and see where this big lumbering behemoth called 'global literature' is going.

- David Mitchell

Deep Good Manners

Let's face it: professing a deep interest in movies, the absolutely dominant global art form of the last century, is at this point like professing an interest in air. Passion is nice. Erudition is admirable. But it's like that moment when good manners cross over into meaningless etiquette.

- David Rakoff

Burn Fuels

The truth is, as most of us know, that global warming is real and humans are major contributors, mainly because we wastefully burn fossil fuels.

- David Suzuki

Feel More

Global warming creates volatility. I feel it when I'm flying. The storms are more volatile. We are paying the price in more hurricanes and tornadoes.

- Debbie Stabenow

Own Global Market

China is not only formidable, it is also aggressively building its own economic infrastructure. Just a few years from now, China will rival the U.S. and the European Union in global market power. It already has surpassed us in population.

- Jo Ann Emerson

Doing Own

Today, we can see with our own eyes what global warming is doing. In that context it becomes truly irresponsible, if not immoral, for us not to do something.

- Joe Lieberman

Nations While

No one can say how long the process of human extinction might take, but as it proceeds, the same global order will prevail that always prevails: rich nations will find ways to protect themselves and make themselves comfortable, while the poor nations and the poor people of the planet will suffer.

- Joel Sternfeld

Impossible Income

In Southeast Asia the world is understood to be a vast, complex network of interdependent relationships. So when global capitalism makes it impossible for small-time rice farmers to feed their families and make a living, it is a natural thing for anyone in the family who can find an alternative source of income to do so.

- John Burdett

Insurance Private

Our system of private health insurance that fails to provide coverage to so many of our citizens also contributes to the double-digit health care inflation that is making America less competitive in the global economy.

- John Conyers

Other Your

Foreign policy is effectively the assertion of many individual countries intersecting on the global marketplace. And you have to figure out how to get your interest served in a way that meets the interests and needs of these other folks.

- John F. Kerry

Big Mass

For thirty-five years, David Halberstam, an unsilent member of the Silent Generation, has contemplated America and its place in the world, casting his eye on big subjects - Vietnam, global economics, race, mass media, and the 1950s.

- John Gregory Dunne

Challenges Internal

But we can turn challenges into opportunities if we look outwards to the realities of the global economy and modernise our internal institutions in ways that will equip Europe to meet that challenge and create confidence amongst the public.

- John Hutton

Buy Henry Ford

Henry Ford was right. A prosperous economy requires that workers be able to buy the products that they produce. This is as true in a global economy as a national one.

- John Sweeney

Think I Think

Well, I think the global economy is in the position for continuing good growth with inflation well in check.

- John W. Snow

Education Other

Education is among the most important problems we face because it's the ultimate 'gateway' problem. That is, it drives virtually every global problem that we face as a species. But there's a flip-side: if we can fix education, then we'll dramatically improve the other problems, too.

- Jose Ferreira

Address Remains

The global economic outlook remains fragile and uncertain. Global economic imbalances persist and we must address them or risk future instability.

- Julia Gillard

Global Terrorism

Global terrorism is extreme both in its lack of realistic goals and in its cynical exploitation of the vulnerability of complex systems.

- Jurgen Habermas

Scale Exports

From an operational perspective, exports challenge companies to design, develop, manufacture and supply products to discerning customers in global markets. This, in turn, motivates companies to scale up the value chain, which results in higher realisations.

- Baba Kalyani

Another

When we think of the major threats to our national security, the first to come to mind are nuclear proliferation, rogue states and global terrorism. But another kind of threat lurks beyond our shores, one from nature, not humans - an avian flu pandemic.

- Barack Obama

Own Engaged

Today we are engaged in a deadly global struggle for those who would intimidate, torture, and murder people for exercising the most basic freedoms. If we are to win this struggle and spread those freedoms, we must keep our own moral compass pointed in a true direction.

- Barack Obama

Need Functions

In recognising the global problem posed by osteoporosis, WHO sees the need for a global strategy for prevention and control of osteoporosis, focusing on three major functions: prevention, management and surveillance.

- Gro Harlem Brundtland

Been Warnings

I've been producing documentaries on global warming for 20 years and have seen the early warnings of extreme weather events come true.

- Bill Kurtis

Love Some

I'm convinced that there's a new way to define capitalism, and that the definition should include three ingredients - that we love our work, that we are building a traditionally successful business, and that we are having some positive impact in the world, whether it's local or global.

- Biz Stone

Scale About

Think on a 50-year scale, which is a much more natural time-scale for global warming. The US is right now spending about 200 million dollars annually on research into renewable energy.

- Bjorn Lomborg

About Renewables

The second thing is, if you want to do something about global warming, you have to think much more long-term. There is something wrong with saying we should start using renewables now, while they are still incredibly expensive.

- Bjorn Lomborg

Action Earth

For comprehensive Earth action, an all-of-the-Earth representative democracy is required. That is, a global parliament.

- Bob Brown

Some Your

When you truly accept that those children in some far off place in the global village have the same value as you in God's eyes or even in just your eyes, then your life is forever changed; you see something that you can't un-see.

- Bono

Momentary Largest

On Sept. 12, 2016, there was a momentary realignment in the constellation of global business. For the first time, the five largest public corporations in the world by market capitalization were all technology companies: Apple, Alphabet, Microsoft, Amazon.com, and Facebook.

- Brad Stone

United Very

You've got a global food problem. You've got a food problem in the United States. You've got a food problem in Africa... in Asia. And so the truth is, the U.S. is going to have to produce more, on not very many more acres, honestly. And so we're going to have to do a better job.

- Howard Graham Buffett

Participation

Global actions require local and national participation. International cooperation and action requires community perspectives and legitimacy if it is to be effective.

- Ian Goldin

Process Kyoto

Whether the process proves to be Kyoto or something else, let's acknowledge the urgency of global warming.

- Brian Mulroney

Bin Main

Afghanistan is where much of the al Qaeda journey began. It is the main site where Osama bin Laden, Mullah Omar and their cohort rose to prominence fighting the Soviets in the 1980s. Afghan territory holds special significance to the group, which is committed to retaking it and re-establishing it as the base of a global movement.

- Jack Keane

Stomach Box

We know that no algorithm can solve global poverty; no pill can cure a chronic illness; no box of chocolates can mend a broken relationship; no educational DVD can transform a child into a baby Einstein; no drone strike can end a terrorist conflict. Sadly, there is no such thing as 'One Tip to a Flat Stomach.'

- Carl Honore

City Sometimes

Sometimes the media gives us the impression that we are terminal patients, because of problems of global warmth or the ozone layer. And the people, they don't understand that they can could change this situation for the better if they could act locally in a city.

- Jaime Lerner

Prediction Warming

Global warming isn't a prediction. It is happening.

- James Hansen

Within Driver

The U.S. economy is the global economic driver. And within the U.S. economy, the U.S. consumer is the global driver.

- James P. Gorman

Worry About

My only worry about tweeting and modern technology is how it has crept into even the darkest corners of the absolute global village we live in.

- Denis Leary

Love Food

What I've enjoyed most, though, is meeting people who have a real interest in food and sharing ideas with them. Good food is a global thing and I find that there is always something new and amazing to learn - I love it!

- Jamie Oliver

I Think Fact

Global warming is real. It is happening today. It is being charted by our satellites. It is being charted by our scientists. It is being charted by those of us in this body, and I think the real key is if we are ready to admit that fact and take the action to make the necessary conversion.

- Dianne Feinstein

Game Becoming

The NBA is becoming a global game.

- Dikembe Mutombo

Access Very

In one sense, the Internet is like the discovery of the printing press, only it's very different. The printing press gave us access to recorded knowledge. The Internet gives us access, not just to knowledge, but to the intelligence contained in people's crania, access to the intelligence of people on a global basis.

- Don Tapscott

Average Arctic

In the Arctic, things are already getting freaky. Temperatures have warmed three times faster than the global average.

- Jeff Goodell

American I Think

I'm a complete globalist. I think like a global CEO. But I'm an American. I run an American company. But in order for GE to be successful in the coming years, I've gotta sell my products in every corner of the world.

- Jeffrey R. Immelt

Leaders Part

Acquiring market leaders in the U.S. and around the world continues to be a core part of our growth strategy as we strengthen our global platform, one step at a time.

- Dylan Taylor

Trust Records

There's all these proofs that go on of identity, of records, and they're quite non-digital. The blockchain innovation really allows us to take everything where there's record keeping, everything where there's trust around record keeping, and it allows us to make that digital, immutable, permanent, and global.

- Jeremy Allaire

Financial Doing

I want to help create the world's first global currency built on the Internet and built on open platforms and standards such as Bitcoin, and I want to build a financial services institution on top of that. That's what I'm doing with Circle.

- Jeremy Allaire

Think Payment

We really think of Bitcoin as a global, interoperable payment network instead of a store of value.

- Jeremy Allaire

Good Traits

Bitcoin may herald the dawning of a new age in currency. It holds superior traits as a form of 'good money.' As a tangible form of asset (its core tangibility being its mathematical basis), it could become an incredibly important building block for the 21st century's global economy.

- Jeremy Allaire

Example Out

One example of 21st century activism we are engaging in is All Out, a first-of-its-kind global movement to advance the interests and rights of LGBT people. All Out is bringing together people of all identities to build a world in which everyone can live freely and be embraced for who they are.

- Jeremy Heimans

British Been

I'm not a Little Englander. Historically, British people have always been travellers. I look in the world as one place. You have to think in a global sense. Cinema is a global endeavour. My roots are in England but my endeavours are worldwide.

- Jeremy Thomas

Financial Audience

Yahoo is positioned for accelerated financial growth. We have a powerful consumer brand, a huge global audience, and a highly profitable operating model.

- Jerry Yang

Simple Show

At the simplest level, economics can better show us the consequences of our actions. Less simple are cases in which we don't have the knowledge to predict the full consequences. Global warming and climate change are examples.

- Edmund Phelps

Nation Our

I'm heartened by the growing awareness of global warming among important communities and organizations in our nation.

- Jim Clyburn

Support Commerce

I fully support global commerce.

- Jim Costa

Increasingly Our

As an anti-hunger advocate, I found the perplexity of the obesity problem and the hunger problem existing side-by-side in our increasingly global food system begged further investigation.

- Ellen Gustafson

Temperature Allow

The Ocean Health Index is like the thermometer of the ocean. It will allow us to take the temperature to know what is going on at the global level, trying to integrate different impacts, including overfishing, invasive species, coastal development, and climate change.

- Enric Sala

Work Groups

I work for the Global Fund for Women, an organization that is actively supporting women's rights groups in 160 countries around the world.

- Kavita Ramdas

About Claimed

Much of what Tea Party candidates claimed about the world and the global economy during the 2010 elections would have earned their adherents a well-deserved F in any freshman economics (or earth science) class.

- Eric Alterman

Atmosphere Putting

There is universal consensus among experts that the earth's atmosphere is heating up - and that we are responsible for it by putting carbon dioxide in the atmosphere. We also know that the consequences of global warming are catastrophic. But how do we make sure that all countries reduce greenhouse gases?

- Eric Maskin

Study Out

I definitely want to study global health. Right now I'm working on all the prerequisite core curriculum that Columbia has. So getting all of that out of the way. And I definitely want to pursue something along the lines of public health.

- Kelsey Chow

Unity Scarcity

Chemistry itself knows altogether too well that - given the real fear that the scarcity of global resources and energy might threaten the unity of mankind - chemistry is in a position to make a contribution towards securing a true peace on earth.

- Kenichi Fukui

More None

We live in an age of global expectations. Our hopes have converged in many ways, none more so than in our democratic aspirations.

- Eskinder Nega

India Scientific

I want to be remembered as someone who put India on the scientific map of the world in terms of large innovation. I want to be remembered for making a difference to global healthcare. And I want to be remembered as someone who did make a difference to social economic development in India.

- Kiran Mazumdar-Shaw

India Put

Indian business women like Indra Nooyi, Chanda Kochhar, Naina Lal Kidwai, Shikha Sharma, Swati Piramal, Anu Agha, Swati Piramal, Sulajja Firodia Motwani and Zia Mody have put India on the global firmament.

- Kiran Mazumdar-Shaw

Borders Other

Environmental pollution, terrorism, and many other global threats do not stop at borders. We all bear global responsibility and thus need a global identity to enable us to cope with them. We must learn to integrate different levels of identity in ourselves. What matters is not either/or, but both/and.

- Klaus Schwab

Once Warming

Global warming is something that happens to all of us, all at once.

- Larry Brilliant

Back Come

I'm saying, Come on, the global warming thing? How did the ice melt during the ice ages? Was the dinosaurs driving SUVs around back then?

- Larry the Cable Guy

Cinema Economy

Cinema has become a global economy, totally international.

- Lasse Hallstrom

Production Entire

New discoveries and production of resources like shale oil and gas are dramatically altering our energy supply outlook and the entire global geopolitical landscape. And the pace of change - particularly in the past few years - continues to accelerate.

- Fred Upton

Been Dangers

The biologists have essentially been pushed aside. Al Gore's just an opportunist. The person who is really responsible for this overestimate of global warming is Jim Hansen. He consistently exaggerates all the dangers.

- Freeman Dyson

I Think About

I am so sorry to see the state of reading in such decline. I think it says something really scary and terrible about us as a culture. I think it does have to do with everyone's total global embrace of technology.

- Lee Smith

Use Cause

The attacks on global warming are no different than the attacks the cigarettes companies used to use to say that cigarettes don't cause cancer.

- Leonard Mlodinow

Standard However

As for opportunities, there is room for improved product quality and better service and raising our technology standard. In addition, we should have a certain share of the global market. However, we should consider new industries, such as resource development.

- Liang Wengen

Abrupt Our

Fossil fuels, including oil, are running out and supplies are getting harder to find. If we do nothing, prices will continue to rise and our reliance on oil will come to an abrupt and tumultuous end, causing global economic and social turmoil.

- Lucy Powell

Evidence Numerous

Politicians need a better understanding of global ecology. We need to be freed from our species-specific arrogance. No evidence exists that we are 'chosen', the unique species for which all the others were made. Nor are we the most important one because we are so numerous, powerful and dangerous.

- Lynn Margulis

India Around

Indian cinema is no more limited to audiences in India. We have viewers all around the world, and hence, understanding the global perspective is a must. Cinema Beyond Boundaries would get the viewers and the filmmakers together and would help us in serving them with good quality cinema.

- Madhur Bhandarkar

Strong Identifying

The Priceline Group is a truly globally-scaled digital e-commerce Fortune 500 company operating world-class brands. I look forward to contributing to the Group by identifying new opportunities and operating synergies that enhance its already strong track record as a global digital pioneer.

- Maelle Gavet
