    From Jim Darymple. These are exact quotes from Cook. Notice Cook never uses the phrase "climate change" and his comments appear to be very measured and considered. Clearly both the left and right have misconstrued Cooks comments to fit their agenda.

    No where in those comments did Cook say if you don't believe in global warming get out of our stock. At the end of the piece Darymple says:

    Shame on everyone from the left (Bryan Chaffin at the Mac Observer) and the right (Matt Drudge) for twisting these comments to fit their agenda and generate page views.

    That's one version. But it also leaves out the question that spurred the response.

    Without audio or video we can't be sure of the context because there are 100 different versions of "the quote".

    Yes the group was specifically asking about Apple's green efforts, but Cook's response was more than that. Point is, he didn't say get out of the stock if you don't believe in global warming. That's what this group wants people to think and the way the media reported it.
