Senators Gore, Kerry and Heinz were all founding members of GLOBE International.
In recent years GLOBE has held a major Legislators Forum for G8 and major emerging economy legislators in the historic Senate Caucus Room, during which Senators Kerry, McCain, Lieberman, Snowe and Biden participated. The resulting GLOBE Washington Forum declaration of the participating legislators generated headlines around the world as one of the first political agreements on the core principles for a Post 2012 Climate Change Agreement.
Members of the US Congress have been active in all GLOBE policy dialogues and during the GLOBE Tokyo Legislators Forum both Presidential candidates, Senaors Obama and McCain, delivered addresses to the GLOBE Forum. In 2009, then Chairman of the House of Representatives Committee on Global Warming, Rep Ed Markey, hosted the launch and first meeting of GLOBE's International Commission on Climate & Energy Security.
GLOBE is currently partnering with the second largest bi-partisan caucus on the hill, the US Conservation Caucus, for the World Summit of Legislators in Rio.
