Microsoft: The Chamber Doesn't Speak for Us on Climate

Yet another company has stated that the Chamber does not represent its views on climate. As Grist reported Microsoft's Rob Bernard wrote in an e-mail that

"The views expressed by the U.S. Chamber of Commerce do not reflect Microsoft's position on climate change and we are not participating in their climate initiatives."

Now that was actually a couple weeks ago, before Apple split.

Anyway, we'll add Microsoft to the big board.
