We can create a more sustainable, cleaner and safer world by making wiser energy choices.
-- Robert Alan Silverstein

 

Energy conservation is the foundation of energy independence.
-- Thomas H. Allen

 

* The two most abundant forms of power on earth are solar and wind, and they're getting cheaper and cheaper…
~ Ed Begley, Jr.

 

* 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

With its array of gadgets and machines, all powered by energies that are destructive of land or air or water, and connected to work, market, school, recreation, etc., by gasoline engines, the modern home is a veritable factory of waste and destruction. It is the mainstay of the economy of money. But within the economies of energy and nature, it is a catastrophe. It takes in the world’s goods and converts them into garbage, sewage, and noxious fumes—for none of which have we found a use.
-- Wendell Berry

This curious faith is predicated on the notion that we will soon develop unlimited new sources of energy: domestic oil fields, shale oil, gasified coal, nuclear power, solar energy, and so on. This is fantastical because the basic cause of the energy crisis is not scarcity: it is moral ignorance and weakness of character. We don’t know how to use energy or what to use it for. And we cannot restrain ourselves. Our time is characterized as much by the abuse and waste of human energy as it is by the abuse and waste of fossil fuel energy.
-- Wendell Berry

The problems are our lives. In the "developed" countries, at least, the large problems occur because all of us are living either partly wrong or almost entirely wrong. It was not just the greed of corporate shareholders and the hubris of corporate executives that put the fate of Prince William Sound into one ship; it was also our demand that energy be cheap and plentiful.
-- Wendell Berry

Biofuels are the future of energy in this nation and around the world
-- Rod Blagojevich

We've embarked on the beginning of the last days of the age of oil. Embrace the future and recognize the growing demand for a wide range of fuels or ignore reality and slowly—but surely—be left behind.
-- Mike Bowlin, chairman and CEO of ARCO (now BP)

 

I believe that the average guy in the street will give up a great deal, if he really understands the cost of not giving it up. In fact, we may find that, while we're drastically cutting our energy consumption, we're actually raising our standard of living.
-- David R. Brower

* "Is the minor convenience of allowing the present generation the luxury of doubling its energy consumption every 10 years worth the major hazard of exposing the next 20,000 generations to this lethal waste?"
-- David R. Brower

 

The foundation is being laid for the emergence of both wind and solar cells as cornerstones of the new energy economy.
-- -Lester A. Brown, Michael Renner, Brian Halweil

We want to see…the efficient production and use of energy, so that the products we produce and the way we produce them pose no threat to the world's natural environment…economic development…so that more and more of the world's population can enjoy…the things which the energy industry supplies…(and) a society in which ideas and knowledge move freely.
-- John Browne, Group Chief Executive, British Petroleum Company

The word "energy" incidentally equates with the Greek word for "challenge." I think there is much to learn in thinking of our federal energy problem in that light. Further, it is important for us to think of energy in terms of a gift of life.
-- Thomas Carr

Energy will be the immediate test of our ability to unite this Nation, and it can also be the standard around which we rally. On the battlefield of energy we can win for our Nation a new confidence, and we can seize control again of our common destiny.
~ Jimmy Carter

We simply must balance our demand for energy with our rapidly shrinking resources. By acting now we can control our future instead of letting the future control us.
~ Jimmy Carter

* Because we are now running out of gas and oil, we must prepare quickly for a third change, to strict conservation and to the use of ... permanent renewable energy sources, like solar power.
~ Jimmy Carter

* "The risks of transporting deadly nuclear waste, the environmental justice impacts and the long-term health effects of both these projects are untenable...We cannot afford to be silent on these important issues."
~ James Cromwell

 

* I know that nuclear is better than fossil fuels when it comes to carbon dioxide, but nuclear energy is by no means clean. We don't know what to do with the waste we already have and it seems like a bad idea to me to make more when we have so many cleaner options such as wind and solar.
-- Sheryl Crow

the cheapest energy is the energy you don't use in the first place.
-- Sheryl Crow
