As the Senate moves forward with the cap-and-trade debate, what role is the business community playing in lobbying efforts? During today's OnPoint, Mindy Lubber, president of Ceres, an investor network working to address sustainability challenges, explains how her group is trying to influence the Senate's climate debate. She gives her take on recent criticism of the U.S. Chamber of Commerce and its stance on climate legislation and addresses whether Ceres is pressuring its business partners to leave the chamber.
