Pew Center on Global Climate Change

The world’s leading scientists agree that a gradual warming of our climate is observable and documented, and it will continue. This long-term warming trend poses serious risks to the economy and the environment.
Pew Center on Global Climate Change provided a forum for objective research and analysis and for the development of pragmatic policies and solutions. Pew established the center in 1998 as a nonprofit, nonpartisan and independent organization. It produced credible information, straight answers and innovative solutions to address global climate change.

The center sought to achieve its mission through high-quality analysis—issuing more than 100 reports from top-tier researchers on key climate topics such as economic and environmental impacts and practical domestic and international policy solutions. The center’s leaders and staff held briefings with members of Congress and administration officials as well as international leaders. It also worked with 43 major corporations in its Business Environmental Leadership Council to encourage business to help promote solutions.

In January 2007, the center was one of the inaugural members of the U.S. Climate Action Partnership, an alliance of major businesses and environmental groups that calls on the federal government to enact legislation requiring significant reductions of greenhouse gas emissions.

Pew is no longer active in this line of work, but for more information, view the materials below and visit the Center for Climate and Energy Solutions site.
