This 1996 Global Climate Coalition (GCC) News Release reported on comments made by GCC Executive DIrector, John Shlaes, at a climate conference in Switzerland. This News Release focused on Shale’s concerns regarding the exclusion of developing nations from potential carbon emission regulations. Shlaes argued that the bulk of future emissions will come from developing nations, and that “Unless all parties are fully engaged, the oft-stated goals of this process can’t be realized.”
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.
