Unfriendly Climate Greets Gore At Apple Meeting

theodp writes “Apple’s shareholder meeting this week took on a Jerry Springer vibe, with harsh comments about Al Gore, former VP and Apple board member, 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 [the] advice he gives to Apple is as faulty as his views on the environment then he doesn’t need to be re-elected.’ Hey, at least he moved a few copies of Keynote, Shelton. Shareholders introduced proposals regarding Apple’s environmental impact — one asking Apple to commit publicly to greenhouse gas reduction goals and to publish a formal sustainability report; another proposing that Apple’s board establish a sustainability committee. These proposals were rejected by shareholders. However, preliminary voting results indicated that Gore was re-elected to Apple’s Board.”
