STARBUCKS, GAP, NIKE AND OTHERS DEMAND TRUMP STAND BY CLIMATE DEAL
If President-elect Donald Trump is going to go soft on climate change regulations, big business is going to put up a big stink. In an open letter on Wednesday, Starbucks, Gap, Nike, L'Oreal, and hundreds of other American businesses joined together to tell Trump that they are committed to fighting global warming. And they implored the future president — who has called climate change a hoax —to keep the current low-carbon policies championed by President Obama. "We want the US economy to be energy efficient and powered by low-carbon energy," they wrote, adding "failure to build a low-carbon economy puts American prosperity at risk."
