Salt Lake City, UT – Utah's dirty air means children who grow up here will never fully develop their lung capacities. Studies also show bad air will shave two years off their lives. This Saturday at Utah Valley University a group of experts will address the nature of the state's air quality problem and the obstacles to action. The Utah Clean Air Conference will also focus on effective solutions. Cherise Udell, founder of Utah Moms for Clean Air, told KUER's Jenny Brundin she'd also like to see a discussion on the ideal air quality Utahns want.
