NEW VIDEO! If there’s one issue that hasn’t been talked about enough in this election, it’s the environment.
Yet the difference between the parties is stark: Republicans, bankrolled by polluters like the Koch Brothers, want to cut the EPA and rollback or weaken vital environmental protections like the Clean Air and Clean Water Act, laws that ensure millions of Americans can breath our air and drink our water safely.
Mitt Romney calls the EPA “a tool in the hands of the President to crush the private enterprise system,” and has vowed to block needed protections on things like fracking and carbon emissions.
Interviews include Rep. Raul Grijalva (AZ-7) and policy experts from the Natural Resources Defense Council, National Wildlife Federation, and 350.org, who share the history, purpose, and success of our environmental laws, and push back on the Republican lie that environemntal protections are bad for the economy.
With the health of millions of Americans potentially impacted by the dangerous positions of Mitt Romney and Republican lawmakers, it’s vital that this issue isn’t forgotten this election season. Help us spread the word by sharing the video.
My good friends at New Left Media drop yet another new video that, yet again, addresses an issue dear to me. We’re killing the planet, but issues concerning the environment are entirely absent from this election. While both sides have failed to make the issues a focal point, despite their obvious importance, there is a stark difference between the stance the political parties take.
