Skip to comments.Richard Branson sides with Apple CEO against Climate Change Deniers
Posted on 03/10/2014 8:16:05 AM PDT by dangerdoc
Inspired by Apple CEO Tim Cook, Virgin founder Richard Branson has taken to his blog to say that businesses should begin standing up against climate change deniers. "While Tim told sustainability skeptics to 'get out of our stock,'" Branson writes, "I would urge climate change deniers to get out of our way." Cook's statements came at a recent shareholders meeting, where he soundly shot down a proposal rooted in climate change denial that would have had Apple putting its bottom line above its interests in sustainability. Cook said that those who would prefer Apple do everything purely for profit simply shouldn't invest.

Before Copernicus, 97 percent of "learned scholars" believed that the Earth revolved around the Sun. I guess that was compelling then too.

Simple enough. These spoiled billionaires are working against America and Americans, while profiting immensely from them.
Therefore, when conservatives control congress and the White House, these billionaires need to be put in their place.
Most of them are not billionaires because they have billions of dollars, but because they have the equivalent in stock. If their stock drops, they stop being billionaires.
And they stop being pestiferous to America and Americans.
Right now, their stock is sky high in many cases solely because it is propped up by the US government. Take away those props, and overnight, these billionaires are selling pencils on street corners.
Time for the joy ride of these scoundrels to end.

See how easy it is to screw this up?
Right. A company that builds most of its products in China professing it cares more about the environment than making a profit.
So when Apple decided that it didn’t want to comply with EPA rules and moved their manufacturing to China, they were only concerned with what? Or when they thumbed their noses at minimum wage laws and hired Chinese workers at a fraction of the cost of an American worker they were just doing what? And how ‘bout when they shielded their billions in foreign banks to avoid taxes in the USA? All this at the same time that they were sending massive amounts of money to politicians who devised the very rules that they have so assiduously avoided. We have several vulgarities for people like that.
How in the world would you accomplish that? How do we put people like Sir Richard “in their place”?
No, I won’t get out of your way, Dick. You aren’t my boss, so F off, son.
Branson is old.
Does it help with their taxes? Payoffs?
These people are not stupid. Follow the $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$.
What percent of Soviets believed in Communism? Or at least those who went on record?
There has been a blacklist of thought. Challenges from within the scientific community where silenced. This was in the leaked memos.
Richard and Tim have come out as ACC Nazis....who knew?
they’re all afraid of Obama and the nsa. they’re not stupid people.
Stalinists lie. ALWAYS
these dopes would insist that BELIEF in Climate Change is..the mark of the beast..
either wear it or be de personed
I don’t have any use for this company’s stock or products.
Apple can take its business and its Glowbull Warming and shove it.
And Rush can get turned off when he talks about these idiots too.
ya think these guys are doing this for Obama ?
If Climate Change Hoax Deniers don't want my money, I'll be more than happy to not give it to them.
