Major corporate hold-outs turning their backs on climate denial

The last bastion of corporate climate denial is crumbling, putting pressure on industry associations to change their message.
ExxonMobil made waves across the blogosphere last week when it criticized the influential lobbying group ALEC for thwarting action on climate change — even though the company is itself an ALEC member.

Earlier this week, global mining giant BHP Billitonwarned the U.S. Chamber of Commerce and two other coal-friendly organizations that it will pull its membership over their failure to link energy policy with climate action.
