Producers of the renowned Story of stuff animation have released a new compelling animation that  critiques Cap and Trade. TNI's Carbon Trade Watch were part of a team of advisers behind the film. View the animation that is causing a big debate and forward it on.

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. www.storyofcapandtrade.org
