In honor of Earth Day, See the Borderlands...

Photojournalist Krista Schlyer has shot some of the most dynamic and astounding scenes of wildlife and walls along the U.S.-Mexico border. If you're familiar with Sierra Club Borderlands Campaign, then you've seen her work.
For Earth Day, she has put together a 4-minute film clip capturing a very ominous and timely threat. She exposes an extreme proposal to hogtie more than 30 important environmental protection laws, not just along the southwest land border, but also along the Canadian border, the Gulf Coast, the East Coast, the West Coast, even the Hawaiian and Alaskan boundaries! 2 out of 3 Americans live within the areas to be affected, and depend on the protection these laws provide for clean water, clean air, and a healthy environment.
