1. Utah's Wasatch Front already has a significant winter particulate pollution problem and serious summer ozone problem. Allowing Diesel trains to carry crude oil for refining in Salt Lake's refineries is a very bad idea. The last thing we need are more hydrocarbon-related emissions in the valley. I am therefore opposed to the construction and operation of this proposed rail line. 2. The rail line with further fragment wildlife habitat and degrade the landscape. 3. Utah should be pushing for clean energy not more fossil-fuel energy-related development. This rail line with only facilitate more oil and gas operations in the Uinta Basin. Again, I am therefore opposed to the construction and operation of this proposed rail line.
