By 2050, Europe could achieve an economywide reduction of GHG emissions of at least 80% compared to 1990 levels... This level of reduction is only possible with a nearly zero-carbon power supply.
European Climate Foundation (ECF) / McKinsey and others "Roadmap 2050: A Practical Guide to a Prosperous Low Carbon Europe", April 2010

In the shorter term, the cost of electricity in the decarbonized pathways is higher than the baseline, more so in the pathways with higher shares of renewable supply. Over the medium and longer term these differences disappear.

Our climate is changing. The Earth's climate has, in fact, warmed by 1.1 to 1.6 degrees Fahrenheit since the industrial revolution. People look at this and say: Oh, that is not very much. In fact, it is very much, and it changes the dynamic. It impacts species. It kills some. It diminishes the carbon sink of the ocean. It does a number of things.
Diane Feinstein

Today we're seeing that climate change is about more than a few unseasonably mild winters or hot summers. It's about the chain of natural catastrophes and devastating weather patterns that global warming is beginning to set off around the world ... the frequency and intensity of which are breaking records thousands of years old.
Barack Obama

Nobody on this planet is going to be untouched by the impacts of climate change.
Rajendra K. Pachauri, chairman of the intergovernmental panel, March 2014
