The Story of Stuff Project
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 whats really required to tackle the climate crisis. If youve heard about Cap & Trade, but arent sure how it works (or who benefits), this is the movie is for you.

And, for all you fact checkers out there,

Been living in Calgary for over 10 years now and we certainly have not experienced any consistent warming. Most seasons have been all over the place but no consistent increase in weather warming. This can certainly be verified by looking at the previous weather patterns in Calgary. Nothing to hide here. Someone should stop and ask these dopes, why is that now ? Al Gore was recently asked why is it now you made a prediction that if the world did not take your advice on this global warming we would all be doomed in 5 years. He then said to Al, you do realize we are in year 20 since your prediction. You should of seen Al's eyes pop out. It was almost like the occasion when a reporter asked Justin Trudeau if you knew it was wrong that you shouldn't be taking gifts of vacations from your so called friends. Then why did you do it ? Justin just pulls the aba dabba do speech. You know where your brain reaches back to find the truth, and all it can find is hot air and gibberish. So it comes forward. Now you know why they are called lie-berals.

On another occasion last year the lie-beral media Global News was reporting an ice berg off the coast of Nfld and tried to attribute it to global warming. Because most Canadians have never been to Nfld, so they try to pull off the old scam. They don't know the difference, so let's fool them with this nonsense. Icebergs have been a very common occurrence in Nfld for centuries. It's all part of the annual spring thaw. As a matter of fact I don't ever remembering anyone reporting global warming back in the early part of the century. Yet a lot of people know the story about the sinking of the Titanic just at the turn of the century, just off that same coast. Hmmn, how funny is that now !!! If you want to be duped, just listen to a lie-beral !

Ronald Reagan was certainly very accurate when he made the quote. It's not that Lie-berals are ignorant. It's just that they know so much that isn't so !!

Is there an article I can read to learn more about how cap and trade failed in Europe? I wish the media hear had reported that story. It's news to me!

Carbon is one of the most abundant elements in the universe. You CANNOT "get rid" of carbon...YOU ARE MADE OF CARBON! Look people, we could completely end all carbon emissions for 10yrs & 1 serious volcanic eruption would erase all the "carbon we saved". It's a preposterous "solution" & our technology is nowhere near ready to "end carbon emissions" the ONLY thing that comes from these schemes is making assholes richer & poor folks poorer. & before you start with NOAA's "facts" about carbon & our environment I'd encourage you to consider that NOAA is funded by donations, hundreds of millions of them & nobody donates if there's little to no problem so by their very definition their modus operandi/ conclusions are bias because they must find in their own favour, or cease to exist through lack of financing & Al Gore? the champion of pollution is a lying asshole, 3 different times he's "predicted" the polar icecaps melting by such n such date & bbssstt! bupkiss! He'll go on & on about how awful everything is & then hit you up or sell you a movie or T-shirt or whatever it's a fucking ponzi scheme people! Do people pollute? yes of course we do, is our planet in dire straights? Hell no & we won't be but we do need to make some changes & the 1st one is to STOP GIVING AWAY TAX DOLLARS TO COUNTRIES THAT DON'T GIVE A SHIT & ARE TOO LAZY TO HELP THEMSELVES!!! You CANNOT buy people out of poverty, they MUST get off their lazy asses & DO IT THEMSELVES & stop shipping massive amounts of plastics globally & start burning the shit to run powerplants, we DO have the tech to burn it for next to nothing & make massive amounts of steam power for turning of generators etc etc. I could go on but even I'm sick of me now.....please people, stop giving away your countries wealth, it's a scam & you are making & financing global terror organizations... & yes there's ample proof.

China emits the most carbon pollution. More than the US and Canada combined, but they're not gonna change their ways any time soon

"It could be better (a.k.a. treat companies worse), so it doesn't work"? I call bullshit. Maybe C&T is good, maybe not, but this video looks waaaay more like opinionated bickering. Too many "opinion words" (this is stupid, devils in this and that, downright dangerous, etc.). I already feel there is something very wrong with this channel.

Edit: Holy CRAP are you an insultingly arrogant piece of work! I have never felt so talked down to by someone technically wanting the same as myself (a cleaner environment)! You are horrible and part of the reason people hate environmentalism! Shut down this channel for god's sake before you hurt the cause just to get a fix of your own selfrighteousness!!! You're horrible!!

Why are people building houses 5,000 and 10,000 square ft. and up. Still going strong. Two people in a house that size. Why?

Maybe it was different when this video was made in 2009. But for those watching today, in 2017 (in relation to California):
Permits are not free, they are sold by the government in an auction.
Offsetting is monitored to try to avoid cheating

"Cap and Trade" is a clever name they came up with to replace the word "tax". It's a TAX! And global warming is a scam to raise our taxes. That's why the government pays unemployed scientists 100's of thousands of dollars to massage studies to come to predetermined conclusions. If you want to continue getting paid then keep churning out studies that say we are causing the planet to warm. I believe the data and the scientists who are not bought off -- not the bought off scientists.

Pay attention to how your media lies to you. They do this with everything.
The debate or argument is falsely represented. They act as if the only debate is whether or not "Climate Change" is real so you preoccupy yourself with that idea and not the solution issue, which is the real problem.
The climate change is real - the solution is where the scam lies and you should know this since the traitors on the left (traitors because they are not really left) go around the world preaching about it. You should have known.
Fix them by agreeing on a real solution and pushing for that. Don't let them reverse psychology you into supporting the climate deals.

We tested the pH levels of some popular bottled water brands and tap water. What we found was quite shocking to say the least. We then tested the water that comes from the Alphion water alkalizer and found another surprising result. Watch this video and find out how the water you are drinking today can effect your wellbeing tomorrow..
