1993 GCC Patrick Michaels “Benign Greenhouse” News Release

This Global Climate Coalition (GCC) news release amplified journalist Boyce Rensberger’s June article “‘Greenhouse Effect’ Seems Benign So Far.” The industry-funded GCC opposed greenhouse gas regulations through direct engagement and collaboration with affiliated climate deniers from 1989 to 2002. Its membership spanned across the automotive, utility, manufacturing, petroleum, and mining industries.

Rensberger’s article interviewed James Hansen and climate denier Patrick Michaels on their views regarding natural warming and computer modeling. The GCC agreed with Michaels’ analysis and offered to distribute his work to any journalists interested.

The GCC featured this article in its Climate Watch Bulletin, titled, “Post Reporter Finds Threat Uncertain.”

This document is part of the private collection of Nicky Sundt, a Washington-based climate change science, policy and communications expert.
