Annie Leonard (of The Story of Stuff) thinks not. If you only watch one video about our last chance to save the planet this week, it should be this one

The video is about 8 minutes long, and a lot of fun.

If you want more, you can read Annie’s blog post on climate and consumption here.

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.
