QUOTES:

Adriana Voss-Andreae MD PhD, 350PDX Executive Director said, "We have a historic opportunity to correct the path of injustice and destruction taken over past generations and turn the tide for us and many generations to come. Led by local and most impacted communities, we can and must rapidly phase out the extractive fossil fuel economy by disallowing all new fossil fuel infrastructure and saying 'YES' to the type of just and renewable energy future we want. Ordinary people everywhere are stepping up to be the extraordinary heroes of our movement."

Jacqueline Patterson, Director of Environmental and Climate Justice Program, NAACP stated, "As we build a new energy economy, we must ensure it is rooted in principles and processes of equity and justice. Without deliberative intentionality, we run the risk of mirroring the injustices of the fossil fuel economy even as we aim to save the environment. To care for our ecosystem, it means we must be as concerned about human rights as we are about conservation. This means that our emerging new economy must take money out of politics and establish true democracy and it must ensure universal access to the commons including quality jobs/livelihoods, affordable and accessible energy, and clean air, clean water, healthy and nutritious food, affordable housing and land, accessible mobility/transit, and more."

Senator Bernie Sanders said, "President Trump's position on climate change is pathetic and an embarrassment. The debate is over. Climate change is real. It is caused by human activity, and if we do not act aggressively to move away from fossil fuels, the impacts will get much worse. In 2017, we saw fires, floods and massive hurricanes -- this is the kind of extreme weather that will become much more common with increasing climate change impacts. Now more than ever, millions of people must get engaged in the political process to demand that we finally put people before polluters."

Bill McKibben, co-founder of 350.org said, "2017 was tough--we resisted, but we lost a lot of ground. 2018 we take that ground back, and we'll do it with this Fossil Free campaign that helps unite progressive environmentalists to move us off oil and coal and gas and on to a world that works. We move into high gear on January 31--across organizations, across the arts and sciences, and across the country (with some help from our friends across the planet). If you can't be there in person, you can still be there live--and you should be."
