The New York Times: Enviros Waging ‘Orchestrated Pressure Campaign’ on Climate Bill — U.S. Chamber CEO

October 9, 2009

(Page 2) Bill Keith, president of SunRise Solar Inc., a St. John, Ind.-based maker of solar-powered ventilation systems, said there has been “a lot of chatter” among executives this week about the chamber defections. Keith is not a chamber member but sits on the group’s intellectual property committee.

“I fully respect the chamber, but I think they are missing the mark on the climate issue,” Keith said. “For one, they are not scientists, they are the U.S. Chamber of Commerce. They are supposed to represent businesses.”
