This undated document contains an overview and membership list of the Global Climate Coalition. The industry-funded GCC opposed greenhouse gas regulations through direct engagement with climate policy negotiations and collaboration with affiliated climate deniers from 1989 to 2002. Its membership spanned across the automotive, utility, manufacturing, petroleum, and mining industries.
The overview of the GCC stated that, “members include a wide range of industrial concerns including agriculture, utilities, oil, gas, railroads, automobiles, chemicals, mining, minerals and broad business groups. Eighteen of America’s largest trade groups belong.” It also highlighted the GCC’s active role in “each of the negotiations on a climate change treaty” and meetings with foreign countries to discuss climate policy. It stated that the GCC was the “lead U.S. business group and spokesman on climate in Rio de Janeiro at the United Nations Conference on Environment and Development and were actively involved in the first interim INC negotiating session this past December in Geneva.”
This document is part of the private collection of Nicky Sundt, a Washington-based climate change science, policy and communications expert.
