While browsing AdWeek, I came across a video titled The Price of Carbon and thought it would be worth sharing as a conversation starter. It’s a pretty concise way to encourage the continuation of a complex discussion about a topic with immediate and long term impact on human existence on Earth.

Instead of charging polluters a fee for dumping their carbon dioxide into our shared atmosphere, we are all paying the cost of the consequences of attempting to store about 30 tons per year in our air. I’m willing to pay my share and work to reduce our collective contribution to the pollution. Are you?

By the way, for those who want to argue by claiming that CO2 is a plant fertilizer and a natural product, consider the fact that feces can make exactly the same claim.
