Big Businesses Flee 'Cap And Trade' Consortium
"Big business support began to crumble on Tuesday -- and in a big way. In separate announcements, BP America, Conoco Phillips, and Caterpillar dropped out of the main lobbying group for cap and trade, the U.S. Climate Action Partnership (USCAP). BP sent a letter to its fellow coalition members, Conoco Phillips sent out a press release, and Caterpillar had its name taken off the USCAP website and then confirmed that it was dropping out when media inquiries were made."
Haw! Haw! Haw! Climategate is the gift that keeps on giving. I can't remember when I've had so much fun watching the news. Honestly, I think the last time I found the news this enthralling was when the wall came down in '89 - over 20 years ago.
