Chamber of Commerce makes foreign countries scapegoat for our pollution problems

The U.S. Chamber of Commerce is at it again. One of America's most persistent opponents of effective clean air controls, the business lobby has cooked up a new strategy: blame our pollution problems on emissions from other countries.

It's an obvious attempt to shift the blame about pollution caused by the chamber's members.

It's not the first time this stunt has been tried. Earlier this year, a Senate panel heard from a Georgia official who claimed that some of her state's pollution problems originated in Africa.

But Cox News Service investigated, and found no evidence to support her claim.
