U.S. Chamber of Commerce Replies to Apple’s Departure

It seems like the U.S. Chamber of Commerce was not pleased with Apple’s departure on Monday. The U.S. Chamber of Commerce President Thomas Donohue wrote a letter to Apple that was screaming sarcasm. Here is an excerpt published in the Wall Street Journal:

“It is unfortunate that your company didn’t take the time to understand the Chamber’s position on climate and forfeited the opportunity to advance a 21st century approach to climate change,” Donohue says in the letter, which goes on to slam the leading proposal in Congress to limit U.S. greenhouse-gas emissions as one that “will cause Americans to lose their jobs and shift greenhouse-gas emissions overseas, negating potential climate benefits.”

This letter shows that the U.S. Chamber of Commerce is aware of what it means with a big player like Apple leaving the Commerce due to their latest stance against environmental issues. Instead of writing this letter, why didn’t they write a letter or something about the 21-century approach that the Chamber plans to take against greenhouse gases, and how this would cause American to lose their jobs? The only thing this caused was for Apple and environmentalists to snicker about how this is starting to make you realize that your past actions are causing you present headaches.

We’ll see the next actions that the U.S. Chamber of Commerce or Apple will take.  Don’t forget the popcorn!
