Forum on Cap and Trade: Video and Slides

Repost from the Sunflower Alliance

The Cap and Trade Scam: Video and Slides from the Forum

September 19, 2017, reporting on a forum sponsored by Sunflower Alliance and 350 Bay Area

Watch the video and check out the PowerPoints from our recent lively discussion of California climate policy. Sunflower Alliance and 350 Bay Area sponsored the Sept 17 forum, The Cap and Trade Scam, which included a treasure trove of information and a range of sometimes-conflicting opinions on our new state cap-and-trade legislation, cap-and-trade as a policy for greenhouse gas reduction, other policies that could work better, and a variety of next steps for the climate/environmental justice movement in California. The forum was  held at the California Nurses Association headquarters in Oakland.

Videographer Jay Wilson captured the whole thing on video and graciously made it available to us. The entire forum is on the 350 Bay Area Youtube channel:
