the Polluting Inland Port : inversion in Utah

Utah Physicians for a Healthy Environment invite you to an important meeting regarding Utah’s air quality next week, on Monday, March 25. Come to learn about what’s at stake and how you can help.

We’ll share the latest news about our fight for clean air in Utah, our effort to stop the polluting Inland Port and strategize together about our next steps in the fight for a liveable future.

Stop the Polluting Port Organizing Meeting
Monday, March 25
6-7:30 pm
Sweet Library, 455 F Street, SLC

Stopping the inland port from coming to fruition is important because the port would facilitate the export of fossil fuels across the country and further extraction of fossil fuels within Utah. So please come to help shape Utah’s clean future. It’s a tough fight but our people power is making a difference! Click here for more information.

Additionally, we ask you to call Governor Herbert and ask him to veto 288 – a gravel-mining protection bill that passed on the last day of the legislative session. Initially, the bad bill didn’t pass, but it returned with amendments and went through about an hour before the 45-day session ended. Read the full story here.

the Polluting Inland Port : gravel mining in Utah

A new study estimates that the number of people who die from air pollution is actually double what previous estimates have been. The study focused on the population in Europe but extrapolated the data to the rest of the world.

This obviously only magnifies the legitimacy of our concerns about all the pollution issues in Utah – including the inland port, gravel pits, diesel emissions, fossil fuel extraction, wood burning, etc. Air pollution is not just a theoretical health hazard – it actually kills people. Read the full study here.

Thank you for being part of the fight for cleaner air, cleaner energy, and a cleaner future for Utah!
Thank you to all of our donors and supporters who make our work possible!
