Cap and Trade Explained in Under Four Minutes (Video)

After Lloyd brought us the unfortunate/disturbing news yesterday that 76% of Americans don't know what cap-and-trade is, Hank Green over at EcoGeek got his video camera and blue screen out to explain it for everyone. If you're in that 76% which doesn't quite understand what Green rightly calls the most important piece of environmental legislation out there—don't worry you don't have to raise your hand—take three minutes and thirty seconds out of your day to check out this video. Even if your on top of climate change legislation, watch it anyway. via: EcoGeek
