Our friends at the Oregon-based Cascade Policy Institute [1]produced a 22-minute documentary on global warming. Appropriately titled, Climate Chains [2], the movie discusses how cap and trade legislation to reduce greenhouse gas emissions will raise energy prices, reduce our standard of living, have no net environmental impact and reduce our economic freedom. The film also addresses the special interests behind cap and trade and emphasizes how economic growth is the real path towards environmental improvement. The film includes clips from Heritage’s own Ben Lieberman and David Kreutzer.

You can view the entire film below.
