| Topic: What is carbon trading? Watch "Carbon Connection"
Posted: 17 September 2008 at 2:02pm
Watch "The Carbon Connection" , a new documentary that examines the impact of carbon trading in two communities affected by one new global market – the trade in carbon dioxide. In Scotland a town has been polluted by oil and chemical companies since the 1940s. In Brazil local people's water and land is being swallowed up by destructive monoculture eucalyptus tree plantations. Both communities now share a new threat. As part of the deal to reduce greenhouse gases that cause dangerous climate change, major polluters can now buy carbon credits that allow them to pay someone else to reduce emissions instead of cutting their own pollution.
This is a 40 minute documentary film.
