PEW CLIMATE CENTER


Item #d98jun95

Several major corporations, including American Electric Power, Boeing, and British Petroleum, will help develop marketplace solutions to climate change in cooperation with a new organization, funded initially by the Pew Charitable Trusts with a $5 million grant. The Pew Center on Global Climate Change, headed by former Clinton Administration official Eileen Claussen, will also conduct public education, undertake studies, and promote climate change solutions globally.

Joining with the Pew Center as the Business Environmental Leadership Council, the corporations "accept the views of most scientists that enough is known" to justify action. They will not contribute funds, but will help develop reasonable policies and transition strategies.

The Center's new Web site is http://www.pewclimate.com.
