"Nike Quits Board of U.S. Chamber"

"Nike announced Wednesday that it would resign from the board of the United States Chamber of Commerce, becoming the latest company to break with the group over climate policy.

Nike said, however, that it would remain a member of the chamber, unlike three large utilities -- Pacific Gas and Electric, PNM Resources and Exelon -- which recently announced plans to pull out.

The chamber has been under fire for its outspoken resistance to potential carbon regulation from the Environmental Protection Agency or from Congress."
