This 1998 Global Climate Coalition (GCC) news release reverberates GCC Board of Directors Chair Connie Holmes’ statement questioning the science of climate change. 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.
Holmes’ comments came in response to an American Geophysical Union statement regarding climate change. Holmes touted the GCC’s support of “aggressive research aimed at knowing more about climate science” and industry’s mitigatory actions to curb greenhouse gas emissions.
