In this episode, we discuss Utah’s most important environmental issues with Dr. Brian Moench who operates a non-profit called Utah Physicians for A Healthy Environment.

Development and growth threaten the quality of life we enjoy in Utah. 

Recent medical studies demonstrate that poor air quality causes greater harm to the human body—cardiovascular system, immune and respiratory systems— than previously realized. We delve into the topics of what can be done about it, what isn’t being done about it, where it could lead to if no one takes action.

We also learn why Dr. Moench is a strong opponent to the 16,000 acres proposed Salt Lake City Inland Port; and why he believes it is a terrible idea for Salt Lake City residents who would not like our air quality and quality of life to deteriorate. We also discuss the potential impact the port will have due to the massive amounts of insecticide that will be required for mosquito abatement.
