Kentucky environmental attorney Sanders says Apple is leaving U.S. Chamber of Commerce over stance of denying climate change.

Apple Inc became the latest company to quit the U.S. Chamber of Commerce because the technology company disagrees with the Chamber’s climate change policy. Last month three big power utilities, Exelon Corp, PG&E Corp and PNM Resources Inc, announced that they were leaving the chamber over the group’s stance on climate change.

 The Chamber opposes what it terms “ill-conceived climate change policies and measures that could severely damage the security and economy of the United States.”   Apparently that means opposing any attempts to cap greenhouse emissions from fossil fuel electric generating plants. 

Our office is transitioning to Apple computers, and this announcement solidifies my decision to do so.
