The Story of Cap and Trade

The Story of Cap and Trade (aka carbon trading)

Confused by all this talk of carbon markets? Been hunting for lumps of charcoal in amongst the fruit and veg on your local stalls?

Thankfully the people that brought us the fantastic The Story of Stuff are here to guide us through. Annie Leonard does a brilliant job of showing just why this 'market-based solution' - the centrepiece of the Copenhagen climate change talks - is actually no solution at all and in fact a highly dangerous distraction. Entertaining and enlightening  - check it out and pass it on.
