Dan Modlin of member station WKYU in Bowling Green reports that a plan to build a 4,000-acre industrial park and airport near Mammoth Cave in central Kentucky has environmentalists concerned. Developers say the industrial park, which would also include an airport, a trail yard and a truck terminal, would generate as many as 7000 new jobs for the area. Environmentalists fear that fuel spills and air pollution would damage the sensitive geological formations of Mammoth Cave, which is the world's largest cave system.
