Climate film out Dec 1: debunks 'Cap & Trade' emissions trading gimmickry

See the teaser: http://storyofstuff.org/capandtrade/

Can a solution to climate chaos be found at Copenhagen? Not if the same guys who gave us the problem have anything to do with fixing it!

Would you like to feature this film on your own website during the Copenhagen summit? It's coming to the web in one week: a nine-minute critique of emissions trading, the establishment's main 'false solution' to the climate crisis. Here's our quick description which we'd like you to spread the word about if you have a moment, thanks:

The Story of Cap and Trade is a fast-paced, fact-filled, entertaining look at the leading climate mitigation strategy being imposed by elites at the Copenhagen summit and in Washington and most other capitals and financial centers. Host Annie Leonard introduces the people at the heart of this scheme - energy traders and Wall Street financiers. The "devils in the details" in current cap and trade proposals are unveiled: free permits to big polluters, fake offsets and distractions 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. See the trailer/teaser here: http://storyofstuff.org/capandtrade/

Please spread the word on listserves/social networking sites/tweets, thanks! If you would like your website to host a link to the film, please alert me so we can reach you on November 30 with all the details: pbond@mail.ngo.za
