Salt Lake City, UT – According to a panel of area doctors, there's a growing health risk that is leaving many Utahns sick and dying. The Utah Physicians for Healthy Environment held a press conference this past Monday to offer what they're calling "prescriptions" for the effects of pollution in the state. These include controls on new and existing coal-fired power plants, speed limit reductions and auto taxes based on a car's MPG. Doug is joined by Dr. Brian Moench and others to talk about the proposals and about the political and cultural will to implement them.
