Annie Leonard took the world by surprise with her original piece “The Story of Stuff.” She returns two years later to explain, in similar fashion, what the story is behind Cap & Trade.
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.
Story of Stuff: Cap & Trade run time is approximately ten minutes.
