WASHINGTON (Reuters) – US President Donald Trump has rekindled controversy this time after announcing the US withdrawal from the climate conservation pact and contributing to halting climate change.
Based on this decision, Chief Technical Officer Tim Cook stood up to Trump, sending an instant message to all employees within the company stressing the importance of taking climate change into account.
In his message, Cook said he was saddened by the decision, especially after he had made contact with the president himself in an attempt to convince him of the importance of this to the United States and the world in general.
“Apple’s efforts in this field will not stop, and it will seek to use 100% alternative energy, with intentions to produce recyclable materials to protect the environment and to avoid leaving a large amount of waste, which over time lead to the climate change we are experiencing today,” Cook said.
Elon Musk, the founder of Tesla, was even tougher. He formally announced his withdrawal from the US President’s Council, which was founded primarily to benefit from the expertise of key technical figures to improve state systems and institutions.
In his message, which was obtained and published by AXIOS, Cook said that Apple’s mission is to drive human life for the better through its products first and through its commitments to the planet.
