Best Buy tells the U.S. Chamber of Commerce to stuff it! You don't represent us on climate change

With the year-long health care debate coming to a close, hopes are high that Congress will address the issue of  energy independence. And the Best Buy chain of superstores agrees!

Best Buy told the U.S. Chamber of Commerce last week that it most assuredly does not have their support when it comes to the Chamber's obstructionist approach to limiting climate changing pollution: http://bit.ly/9ybsaj

Best Buy is "...supportive of comprehensive climate change legislation and working to move toward a low carbon economy. With regard to the Chamber’s climate initiatives, the Chamber has not spoken for Best Buy on these issues."

Bravo. The company also ranked 61st on a Green Ranking list of America's 500 largest corporations done by Newsweek Magazine: http://greenrankings.newsweek.com/

Best Buy's impersonal, warehousy feel creeps me out. But my perception of the place just got a little warmer and fuzzier.
