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.

You can view the new video here: http://youtu.be/vO1mMF2Pcpc

Interviews include Rep. Raul Grijalva (AZ-7); Jason Kowalski, Policy Director at 350.org; David Doniger from the Natural Resources Defense Council and former director of climate change policy at the EPA; and Joe Mendelson, director of global warming policy at the National Wildlife Federation, 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.
