Salt Lake City's inversion problem could mean bad news for business
Ravell Call, Deseret News
In recent years, Salt Lake City has attracted positive attention for having an environment conducive to start-up businesses and career growth. But that could change if the city can’t keep its pollution problem under control, according to the National Journal’s Nancy Cook.
“This smog makes residents worry about their health and that of their children. But another concern has recently captured the attention of the state's lawmakers, governor, and local businesses — the pollution's potential economic effect."
Cook then explains how the notorious inversion could affect the tourism industry as well as the city’s reputation as “one of the best places in the country to live.”
Salt Lake’s low cost of living and “easy access to the outdoors” has even convinced some major corporations to relocated to the area, which is “a trend the city wants to encourage,” according to Cook, but the inversion could change some minds.
