Last week, the Utah Supreme Court tossed out an environmental challenge to a tar sands mine, allowing extraction to move forward on the Tavaputs Plateau. What does this mean for the land, water and economy?
On Monday at 12:15 p.m., Alair Emory of Utah Office of Energy Development, Zach Frankel of Utah Rivers Council and Tribune environment reporter Brian Maffly join Jennifer Napier-Pearce to talk about the decision, how U.S. Oil Sands plans to proceed and how this fits into Utah’s energy development policy.
