GCC and Christy: “Is It Hotter Than Ever?” Backgrounder

This Global Climate Coalition “Backgrounder” promotes the work of climate denier John Christy. The 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.

This document argues that “extreme events are ‘misleading’ as indicators of climate change.” The GCC regularly cited Christy’s satellite data, which was later debunked, until at least 1998. GCC released a number of backgrounders and news releases giving climate deniers like Christy a platform (complete collection available here).
