Quotable Quotes

  • “We have to understand the connection between global warring and global warming, because when we start talking about wars for oil, we’re essentially keeping the same approach to energy. So I’m saying we need to move away from reliance on oil and coal and toward reliance on wind and solar, and that’s the basis of my WGA, a Works Green Administration, where we take an entirely new approach to organize the entire country around sustainability, around conservation.”
