    “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.

    Apple’s resignation was effective immediately, the letter said. The move comes a few weeks after Apple expanded the environmental disclosures on its products.

    Does this mean they will eliminate their GHG footprint by not moving Iphone and Macs from Taiwan to the US, or stop using ecologically damaging batteries, or trucking their products around the US?

    sounds like they are moving in that direction...

    “Apple supports regulating greenhouse gas emissions, and it is frustrating to find the chamber at odds with us in this effort,” Ms. Novelli continued.

    Apple’s resignation was effective immediately, the letter said. The move comes a few weeks after Apple expanded the environmental disclosures on its products.

    I'm a MMGW denier so I think it's silly but to me it's much like the healthcare debate, they aren't attacking the real problem. In healthcare they want to spend more money to save money - I'm still trying to figure that out. With MMGW they want to start this weird government circus of cap & tax instead of fixing the problems with cleaner energy like natural gas and nuclear.

    They are re introducing the current I phone with it's more ecofriendly packaging and 666 dollar price tag.

    I await their closing to avoid their carbon footprint.


    As a matter of fact I think the rock and rock artist should stop touring and giving concerts. The amount of electricity consumed by the amps and lights the emissions from the people driving to the shows, and of course the carbon footprint of the planes the celebs travel in.....
