“The science is absolutely clear: #ClimateChange is an existential crisis—one that is no longer a distant threat but a clear and present danger.”

"#HurricaneDorian, reported to be one of the most powerful Atlantic hurricanes on record, is stalled out and barely moving as it pummels the #Bahamas. It has flooded neighborhoods, destroyed homes and left several people dead."

"#ClimateChange is moving indeed faster than we are. The #ParisAgreement states we must limit global temperature rise to 1.5 °C. But current national #ClimateAction plans get us nowhere close. Instead, we’re on pace for a 3 °C rise or more.”

“We simply cannot predict the future for humanity in this scenario. It will profoundly and negatively impact the global economy. This is why we need to take action to address it—nations and businesses working together.”


"As stated in the @IPCC_CH Special Report on 1.5 °C, in addition to accelerating efforts to reduce emissions, we may also need the deployment of technologies to remove carbon from the atmosphere."

@PEspinosaC at #EUNorwayCCS

“There are several exciting projects where these technologies are already in use.
But technology is not the only option we have. While #CCS is (...) offering opportunities to reduce emissions, we should consider them as part of a combination of tools.”


"The other tools are beneath our feet and above our heads: Land, air and fresh water are humanity’s best assets to reducing the impact of our emissions."

@PEspinosaC at #EUNorwayCCS

"Therefore: Carbon capture and storage—at least as a strategy for business—is not a destination, but a transition.

It’s a transition from our current fossil-fuel dependent reality to a #ClimateNeutral future by 2050."

@PEspinosaC at #EUNorwayCCS

"If companies assume that they can continue with a high-emissions, business-as-usual pace, while balancing that indefinitely with #CarbonCapture and storage—they are wrong.

That math simply doesn’t add up—for business or the 🌍."

@PEspinosaC at #EUNorwayCCS

"We cannot forget about those employed in these businesses & ensure they make this a fair transition.

But: The costs of not taking more ambitious #ClimateAction is ultimately the more detrimental one - to businesses, to communities - to all of us."
