The Story of Cap & Trade
(Annie Leonard presents)

Annie Leonard is all about understanding the system and creating solutions. Her previous educational film "The Story of Stuff" released a few years ago was one of my most popular forwards ever. So here is the latest from the woman who explains "Why you can't solve a problem with the thinking that created it."

The Story of Cap & Trade is a fast-paced, fact-filled look at the leading climate solution being discussed at Copenhagen and on Capitol Hill. Host Annie Leonard introduces the energy traders and Wall Street financiers at the heart of this scheme and reveals the "devils in the details" in current cap and trade proposals: free permits to big polluters, fake offsets and distraction from what’s really required to tackle the climate crisis. If you’ve heard about cap and trade, but aren’t sure how it works (or who benefits), this is the film is for you.
Go see the original "Story of Stuff" and the main web site this comes from with a lot more information.
