Chamber Watch rejoinder to Pepsi's response re conflict between its climate commitments and participation in US Chamber of Commerce

It is unfortunate that PepsiCo's response was merely their general statement on trade associations and climate change. The statement notes that climate change requires "immediate, coordinated action," however, it becomes impossible to take PepsiCo's words seriously when taking their funding of the Chamber into account. How can we achieve such immediate, coordinated action if companies like PepsiCo continue to fund the Chamber? PepsiCo's commitments to combat climate change and lower greenhouse gas emissions are contrary to the Chamber's anti-climate agenda...If PepsiCo wishes to be viewed credibly on climate, it needs to leave the Chamber.
