Submission Text
I am vehemently against any and all proposals that promote the continued use of fossil fuels and coal. I have lived in Utah since 1995. This state has so much to be proud of with all our state and national parks, monuments, other-worldly rock formations, mountains, trail systems and so much more. To continue down the path of overburdening the sacred resources through over population, over building, over use of water, crowded streets and highways resulting in ever increasing air pollution, loss of habitat, challenge to water availability and a myriad of other health related issues is not acceptable. Our national healthcare system is already pushed beyond its limits in responding to the COVID pandemic in addition to the ever increasing health issues of compromised human life. In the end, success cannot be defined simply in $$$Monetary terms: Quality of life especially health must be at the top of the scales.
