There’s an emerging trend in business these days, which involves leaving the Chamber of Commerce because of its archaic policy on climate change. Today, Apple quit:
Apple has become the latest company to resign from the United States Chamber of Commerce over climate policy.
“We strongly object to the chamber’s recent comments opposing the E.P.A.’s effort to limit greenhouse gases,” wrote Catherine A. Novelli, the vice-president of worldwide government affairs at Apple, in a letter dated today and addressed to Thomas J. Donohue, president and chief executive of the chamber.

“Apple supports regulating greenhouse gas emissions, and it is frustrating to find the chamber at odds with us in this effort,” Ms. Novelli continued.
Now that Apple is out, it’s cool to quit the Chamber. This does show that there is not a united front from business in the battle to enact smart climate change legislation.
