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.

Running tab of the Chamber's climate credibility crisis:

Quit US Chamber over climate:  Apple, Exelon, PNM Resources, PG&E, PSEG, Levi Strauss & Co.*

Quit US Chamber Board over climate: Nike.

Say Chamber doesn't represent their views on climate: Johnson&Johnson, General Electric, San Jose Chamber of Commerce, Alcoa, Duke, Entergy, Microsoft.

* UPDATE: Levi-Strauss informed us that the company did not leave the US Chamber over climate concerns, as Greenwire had reported.
