Submission + - Unfriendly Climate Greets Gore at Apple Meeting 1

theodp writes: Apple's shareholder meeting this week took on a Jerry Springer-vibe, with harsh comments about former VP and Apple Board Member Al Gore setting the tone. Several stockholders took turns either bashing or praising Gore's high-profile views on climate change. Apple shareholder Shelton Ehrlich urged against Gore's re-election to the board, claiming that Gore 'has become a laughingstock. The glaciers have not melted. If his advice he gives to Apple is as faulty as his views on the environment then he doesn't need to be re-elected.' it. Hey, at least he moved a few copies of Keynote, Shelton. Proposals from shareholders presented in regard to Apple's environmental impact — one asking Apple to publicly commit to greenhouse gas reduction goals and publish a formal sustainability report; the other proposing that Apple's board establish a sustainability committee — were rejected by shareholders. However, preliminary voting results indicated that Gore was re-elected to Apple's Board.

  • The interesting question, which is not answeared here is: Who are these guys? Are these investors that invest in both Apple and oil and coal companies and therefore see their other investments threathened by Gore?

    If so, this is a interesting way that oil companies indirectly influence the decisions made by other, completely unrelated companies. I wonder how much influence such "cross pollination" has in the industry :-|

Ever notice that even the busiest people are never too busy to tell you just how busy they are?
