WATCH: Annie Leonard Presents: The Story of Cap and Trade

Posted on Thursday, December 31st, 2009 at 3:47 pm by dpacheco

From Annie Leonard, creator of the popular animated documentary short The Story of Stuff, comes The Story of Cap and Trade, a cogent takedown of the flawed proposition that cap-and-trade is the solution to climate change.

Cap-and-trade, Leonard argues, rewards historic polluters and lines the pockets of corporate middlemen with billions, while doing nothing meaningful to address climate change. A much more sane approach would be the cap-and-dividend system proposed by Peter Barnes (Climate Solutions: A Citizen’s Guide), in which the money from carbon permits flows back to us, the average citizens. But that’s only the beginning.
