Aspen Skiing Co. joins coalition seeking climate and energy bill

Aspen Times Staff ReportAspen, CO Colorado

ASPEN – The Aspen Skiing Co. joined several major U.S. businesses this week in a lobbying effort to convince Congress to approve “strong” climate and energy legislation.The Skico was among the companies listed in a full-page advertisement in the June 10 Wall Street Journal calling for capping and putting a price on the pollution that causes global warming. The ad is written as a letter to President Obama and Congress. The ad copy says: “Climate and energy legislation that caps carbon and supports clean energy will keep the inventions here, the companies here, and the newly-created jobs in engineering, manufacturing and installation here in the U.S. The time has come to build this future. It is time for the Administration and Congress to lead the way.”The Skico and seven other members of a coalition called Business for Innovative Climate and Energy Policy signed the ad. The other companies were Nike, Symantec, Levi Strauss & Co., eBay, Clif Bar & Co., Seventh Generation and Starbucks. Other companies outside of the coalition, including seven major utilities, also supported the effort.
