Carbon taxes, explained with chickens
This animated explainer was produced to explain carbon pricing at a time when Washington State was considering becoming the first state in the country to pass a carbon tax. Evergreen, it has been republished dozens of times over the past five years as states continue to consider similar legislation. The video was originally published with
a written report that detailed Washington's plan in particular.
