The Climate Investigations Center (CIC) was established in 2014 to monitor the individuals, corporations, trade associations, political organizations and front groups who work to delay the implementation of sound energy and environmental policies that are necessary in the face of ongoing climate crisis.
Some of the issues our team monitors include:
- Efforts to stall the climate policy process by the fossil fuel industry and its allies
- Climate science denial campaigns spawned by industrial interests and their front groups
- The latest climate science impacts assessments and backlash against them
- Attribution science advances connecting climate impacts to global warming pollution
Kert Davies, Executive Director
CIC was founded by Kert Davies, a well-known researcher, media spokesperson and climate activist who has been conducting corporate accountability research and campaigns for more than 20 years.
