The Story of Cap & Trade

“The Story of Cap & Trade” offers an energetic and information-rich examination of the primary climate solution under discussion in Copenhagen and the halls of the U.S. Congress. Annie Leonard takes us through a journey that centers around the influential energy traders and Wall Street financiers involved in this system, while uncovering the problematic aspects of the current cap and trade proposals, such as complimentary permits for significant polluters. The illustration displays a simple, hand-drawn animation style with the title “THE STORY OF CAP & TRADE” at the top. It features three characters standing side by side, each dressed in suits and hats. The figure on the left and the one in the middle are holding green money bills, while the character on the right has both hands in his pockets, all against a white background with sketchy, scattered black marks around the edges.
