This article is part of the Center for Media & Democracy's spotlight on front groups and corporate spin.

In 1980, Du Pont initiated the formation of the Alliance for Responsible CFC Policy, a fancy and misleading title for an anti-regulatory industry lobby group, that found a natural ally in the Reagan White House.[1] Once Ronald Reagan took office, Du Pont suspended further research for alternatives to CFCs, knowing that there would be no political pressure for immediate action. As late as 1986, the Alliance was still arguing that the science was too uncertain to justify any action.
