I absolutely loved the video from Annie Leonard called The Story of Stuff. Now she has come out with another video I love explaining why Cap and Trade is a rotten deal all around. I have been against it for awhile now since it puts the responsibility for cleaning up our planetary act directly in the hands of corrupt businessmen… think Enron and Goldman Sachs. It allows them to become profiteers in the business of saving the world all the while giving the worst polluters a bunch of free passes and not ensuring that third world countries aren’t left holding the bag for the wild pollution party we have been having for decades.
If you don’t quite understand why this is such a short sighted solution then this video should make it all very clear. Enjoy!
