Apple withdrew from the U.S. Chamber of Commerce to distance itself from the group's strong criticism of proposals to cut greenhouse-gas emissions. "Apple supports regulating greenhouse-gas emissions, and it is frustrating to find the Chamber at odds with us in this effort," Apple Vice President Catherine Novelli wrote in a letter to the Chamber's president. Pete Altman, an activist for the Natural Resources Defense Council, said Apple is the fourth major company in recent weeks to pull out of the Chamber because of this issue.
