What is going on in Utah's Uinta Basin to explain newborn babies dying?
An abrupt surge in teenage mothers, drug, alcohol use? No evidence of
that. Is there a genetic explanation? Genes don't change that quickly.
Is there a sudden onset of medical incompetence by the area's
health-care providers? No reason to think so. That leaves one other
possibility. Is there something happening in the environment? As a
matter of fact, yes.
Major cities with pollution problems have either high ozone, like Los
Angeles, or high particulate pollution, like Salt Lake City, depending
on the time of year. But the Uinta Basin has both simultaneously, making
it unique and the most polluted part of the state. Studies suggest that
the two may act synergistically to impair human health. Add to that high
levels of the by-products of every phase of the oil and gas fracking
extraction process - diesel emissions and hazardous compounds like
benzene, toluene and naphthene, and you have a uniquely toxic air
pollution brew in Vernal.
