E-mail Print PDF

Breathless in ZionDid you know that Utah has one of the worst air pollution problems in the country?  The impacts are startling: The pollution is making people sick.  Living under the smothering summer ozone or winter inversion is a big reality that many families and mothers have to endure.

Many studies point to the link between exposure to air pollutants and dangerous consequences to health.  Asthma, respiratory diseases, strokes and heart attacks are just some of the health issues associated with bad air quality.

Our friends over at EnviroNews have been following Utah’s big battle for clean air and are in the final stages of finishing a four year in the making documentary. Breathless in Zionis set to be a riveting documentary that will portray the complex political, topographical, environmental, and health issues regarding the horrendous air pollution problem enveloping the greater Salt Lake City area.

In the film we examine the devastating impact this escalating problem is having on the health of children and local residents in the surrounding communities. Also to be explored are a broad range of conventional and cutting edge solutions for this quagmire, and an exposition of how Utah’s unique geography and ultra conservative political landscape have contributed to an ongoing crises that during certain times of the year leaves Utahans with the most dangerously polluted air in the nation.
