33 Companies Come Out For Hotcoldwetdry Action

Now you know which companies to attempt to avoid (via Grist)

(Ceres) As the President unveils his budget for the coming year, 33 major U.S. companies, including eBay Inc., Nike and Limited Brands signed a “Climate Declaration,” urging federal policymakers to take action on climate change, asserting that a bold response to the climate challenge is one of the greatest American economic opportunities of the 21st century.

Signatories of the Climate Declaration are among the country’s best-known consumer brands, including EMC Corporation, IKEA, Jones Lang LaSalle, L’Oréal, the North Face, the Portland Trail Blazers, Timberland and Unilever, among others. (A full list of signatories is available at www.climatedeclaration.us.) Over the course of an ongoing campaign organized by Ceres and its BICEP (Business for Innovative Climate & Energy Policy) coalition, other leading businesses, as well as individuals, will be encouraged to sign the Declaration and join the call to action.

Well, now we know which companies to avoid as they’re raving hysterics.

“The signatories of the Climate Declaration are calling for Congress to address climate change by promoting clean energy, boosting efficiency and limiting carbon emissions — strategies that these businesses already employ within their own operations.”

There’s that progressivism (nice fascism) again, where they want their beliefs forced on everyone else.

“Businesses understand that planning for a successful future takes investment today. One of the most important things Congress can do to grow our economy and protect our planet is to pass smart climate change legislation this year. Our workforce, supply chain and consumers are counting on us to lead the way,” said Anna Walker, Director, Government Affairs and Public Policy at Levi Strauss & Co.

So, practice what you preach, and leave the rest of us along. Oh, and all these companies should immediately give up all usage of fossil fuels to ship their products and turn the AC and heating systems off at their locations, etc and so on. Bet they won’t.

See the companies below the fold

Ugh, I just bought a new pair of Nike’s. How can we avoid Intel? Nestle? Chocolate!!!!!! Symantec? Not giving them up, as I have a military grade version that is free for life. The rest I can do without. But, I’m not calling for a boycott. Just know that you pay extra for their Warmist views that they want forced on everyone else.

    all the major cell manufactureers are going green also, it saves money. Better start boycotting all those compnaies Teach. refuse to sell any phone that comes from a company that says “green”

  2. Hey, John, take a look on the right sidebar down near the end: that’s right, I have a green server.

  3. gitarcarver says:

    Of course john misses the point that the companies are doing this on their own rather than because the government or some “green hypocrite” demands that they do it.

    This is the free market at work.

    John hates that idea.

    (And by the way, there really is no such thing as a “green company” when it comes to energy. All energy is fed into the grid and it is virtually impossible to tell where the energy comes from once it is combined on the grid with more traditional energy sources.)

    Instead of Intel, you can go AMD.
    Instead of ben & jerry’s socialistic company, you can get a local brand.
    Instead of Levi, go Wrangler or another brand.
    Instead of Symantec (our STATE just switched to it as well) go McAfee, ESET, Viper, etc.

    We used ESET for years and it provided excellent coverage and Administrative control.

    It’s not a boycott when you choose to spend your money wisely.
