Environmental Protection and Economic Growth

We can reduce pollution, protect health, create jobs and grow our economy

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 want to cut the EPA and weaken vital environmental protections like the Clean Air and Clean Water Act, laws that ensure millions of Americans can safely breath our air and drink our water.

But the parties were not always so polarized on environmental issues. What's behind the push to
weaken environmental protections? Watch the video to see. 

Video: Those interviewed include WNY native Jason Kowalski, Policy Director at in Washington DC; David Doniger from the Natural Resources Defense Council; Joe Mendelson, director of global warming policy at the National Wildlife Federation; and Rep. Raul Grijalva (AZ-7).
