"The Chamber does not represent our views on the urgent need for climate legislation," said Peter O'Toole, a spokesman for GE, the largest U.S. conglomerate. "We need climate legislation and a price for carbon in the U.S. now."Sounds pretty cut and dry to us. As it also did to Cisco Systems Inc., which plans to work with the Chamber to, "modernize their position." Unfortunately, Chamber President Thomas Donahue might have a little trouble with that. Already, the Chamber has responded (also from Reuters):
"Our goal is to have the positions that we actually take stances on be reflective of the democratic majority of the broad majority of the business community," said Eric Wohlschlegel, a Chamber spokesman.We are just hoping that when they tally up the votes, they divide by 300,000, not three million. Oh, and don't forget to count out those that have already had enough of you.
