The Story of Cap and Trade

Through this short film we as designers can take that if we understand the system we can step in and start to turn these problems into solutions. Obviously as shown, cap and trade is not the solution to reduction of CO2 emotions, I think that the best and most important point to get from this is that the best way to take out carbon from the atmosphere is to leave it safely in the ground. Therefore as product designers we have to understand all the pollution created by the products we design and try or best to minimize it.

This could be from either, using less material so manufacturing is less, or compacting design so that shipment is less, or even designing so that there are less electronic mechanisms in the world, our challenge is to explore the possibilities in design and adopt them to current projects.
