Climate supporters launch new advertising campaign

Companies and interest groups that support climate legislation are starting a new advertising campaign to urge senators in key states to back a cap on carbon once Congress returns from recess.

American Businesses for Clean Energy and the U.S. Climate Action Partnership are paying for print ads arguing climate legislation will cut harmful greenhouse gas emissions, increase energy security and create new jobs.

The companies involved in the effort include Google, Nike, Honeywell, and Ford Motor Co. In total, 97 companies, environmental groups and labor unions signed the ad. The ads will run in Maine, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Ohio, South Carolina, and Florida, states represented by members whose support is thought to be critical to climate legislation.
