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."
