Air Pollution in Utah is Dangerously BAD

SNIPPET:


Recent data related to air pollution in Utah presents the following:

🚩 A recent Forbes magazine study ranked Salt Lake City as the ninth most toxic city in the United States (Forbes Magazine, 2/28/11).  Of these top 10 most toxic, SLC has the highest Toxic Release Inventory.

🚩 The American Lung Association gives Salt Lake County a rank of "F" for the two most important components of air pollution, ozone and particulate matter (PM2.5).

🚩 Salt Lake County is officially classified by the EPA as “non-attainment” with National Ambient Air Quality Standards (NAAQS) for PM10, PM2.5, SO2.

🚩 Air pollution monitors recently installed in the Uintah Basin measured ozone concentrations exceeding federal health standards more than 68 times in the first three months of 2010.   

🚩 Air pollution exacerbates existing asthma in adults and children and causes asthma and respiratory infections in those who are not otherwise predisposed.

🚩 Air pollution increases the incidence of SIDS, low birth weight syndrome, premature birth, and infant mortality.

🚩 Air pollution increases the incidence of the most common forms of childhood cancers, especially leukemia.

🚩 Air pollution increases genetic damage in newborns, which may lead to increased morbidities as an adult including heart disease, strokes, diabetes and cancers. These genetic aberrancies can be passed on to subsequent generations.

🚩 Air pollution increases rates of sudden death, heart attacks and strokes.  It increases blood pressure and shortens life expectancy.  Using the formula published by the American Heart Association, between 1,000 and 2,000 Utahns die prematurely annually because of air pollution.

Despite alarming statistics and mounting public pressure, state leaders continue to support a development-focused agenda that only acts to exacerbate air pollution:
