(EnviroNews Utah) – In a press conference of unparalleled environmental magnitude on Capitol Hill yesterday, a group of prominent physicians including former Utah Medical Association President Cris Cowley took the podium in front of local news media in what they deemed as an air pollution “public health emergency”.
At the conclusion, Dr. Ellie Brownstein, a pediatrician of the Utah Physicians for a Healthy Environment marched a letter to the office of Governor Gary R. Herbert with dozens of signatures of Utah physicians requesting a series of emergency actions be implemented. These actions would require a 50% reduction by local industrial polluters, reducing freeway speeds to 55 MPH, and several other things.
