It's Time For A Carbon Conversation. New Climate Reality Video Reveals The True Cost Of Carbon Pollution

The Climate Reality Project Teams With Comedian Reggie Watts On Latest Video

BOULDER, Colo., March 21, 2013 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Carbon pollution is not only disrupting our lives, it's hitting our wallets. This is the underlying theme of The Price of Carbon, a new Climate Reality Project video released today .  Narrated by comedian and musician Reggie Watts, it's the latest in a series of high-profile video shorts from Climate Reality to connect the dots between the causes and impacts of climate change.

The Price of Carbon highlights the direct link between fossil-fuel energy and dirty weather caused by carbon pollution, documenting the substantial costs to the American taxpayer — from repairing the devastation of Superstorm Sandy to emergency drought and flood relief.

The Price of Carbon is the newest video installment from The Climate Reality Project, and joins other notable videos such as Climate 101 featuring Bill Nye , Doubt, and hundreds of other videos that have been used widely by educators, activists, and policymakers alike. The Price of Carbon is intended to spur conversation about the true cost of carbon. Over the coming months, The Climate Reality Project will launch several exciting initiatives to move the carbon conversation forward and drive solutions.

"Climate disruption means rising insurance rates, higher medical bills, and a higher cost to taxpayers, to name just a few of the financial impacts," said Maggie L. Fox, President and CEO of The Climate Reality Project. "It's time to jump-start a conversation about the true cost of carbon pollution."
