It hasn't been a great year for the U.S. Chamber of Commerce. Member corporations have been leaving left and right over the Chamber's backwards stance on climate change and just a few weeks ago they were the target of a fantastic punking by the infamous eco-pranksters The Yes Men.

A couple of Greenpeace activists decided to keep up the pressure on the Chamber (and Chamber President Tom Donohue in particular) and did a balloon banner drop in the lobby of the hotel where the Chamber is having a conference.

Nicely done.
