From the simple, inspiring and creative minds that brought us the Story of Stuff, comes the timely story of Cap and Trade. Complicated? You bet, but these great innovators have broken down this complicated, political topic into a fun, interactive knowledge trip. Check it out… it’s for the future.
A note from the creators:
The Story of Cap & Trade is a fast-paced, fact-filled look at the leading climate solution – emissions trading – on the negotiating table at Copenhagen and in other capitals. 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 & Trade, but aren’t sure how it works (or who benefits), this is the film is for you.
