Major corporations ditch US Chamber of Congress over global warming denial

This is amazing: Pacific Gas & Electric Company, PNM Resources, Nike, and Exelon, among other major corporations are ditching the US Chamber of Commerce over their global warming / climate change denial.

PG&E's press release states:

PG&E Corp. (PCG) said Tuesday it is leaving the U.S. Chamber of Commerce over objections to what its top executive called the chamber’s “extreme position on climate change.”

In a letter to the U.S. Chamber published on PG&E’s blog,, PG& E Chairman and Chief Executive Peter Darbee wrote that company employees “find it dismaying that the Chamber neglects the indisputable fact that a decisive majority of experts have said the data on global warming are compelling and point to a threat that cannot be ignored.”

Excellent news. Global warming is real, and it's really bad for business.
