Having trouble putting together the two ideas of “cap” and “trade”? Check out this NPR segment, replete with a clip from Dude, Where’s My Car?, that compares cap and trade with a hypothetical system for limiting the usage of the word “dude.”  I’m not really sure this simplifies the concept, nor that it even needs simplification.

As far as dude examples go, I much prefer…well, the Dude, not the millionaire, duder, his dudeness, or el duderino, if you’re not into the whole brevity thing.

Regarding the below, this is really the better video, but the title is not family friendly.
