UPHE’s Op Ed in the Deseret News warning against an inland port

Is the price we will have to pay to make SLC an inland port worth it?  Massive increase in truck traffic, more congested freeways, more diesel emissions, more air pollution, an influx of more people in an already crowded valley desperate for clean air and whose water resources are diminishing rapidly?   Plans for our economic future must be consistent with the carrying capacity of where we live.  Cancer is the only thing that can grow indefinitely, and we all know how that ends.
