Apple quits the chamber of commerce

“We strongly object to the chamber’s recent comments opposing the E.P.A.’s effort to limit greenhouse gases,” wrote the VP of worldwide government affairs, Catherine A. Novelli.

The New York Times reports:

Over the past several weeks, three large utilities — Pacific Gas & Electric, PNM Resources and Exelon — have resigned from the chamber over climate policy differences. Last week, also citing climate, Nike withdrew from the chamber board, though it retained its membership.

It is encouraging to me, that people are taking the threat of climate change seriously – despite the fact that likely very few have a good grasp of the consequences of doing nothing and continuing on this path.

Drudge Report and WND don’t seem to have an opinion about this.
Perhaps their browsers filter out climate related content.
