Submission Text
This project is wasteful, regressive, and will contribute to pollution, decreased air quality, climate change, and harmful health impacts and premature deaths. It would be vastly preferable to spend the funds rebuilding the economies of impoverished rural Utah communities by having them be centers for the production of clean energy windmills and solar panels instead of mining centers. Healthier for the residents, safer, more profitable, and more sustainable. We can have healthy bodies, a healthy earth, and economic growth if we just make RATIONAL and sustainable decisions. The Uinta Railway is a giveaway to special interests that have no place in a truly healthy Utah.
