Letter: Outdated climate

Published: Sunday, July 27 2014 12:00 a.m. MDT

We are now facing severe environmental, population, economic and governmental problems.

The enabling act language was based on past assumptions about vastness, lack of constraints and the desirability of growth. The land and air are no longer vast. We need to begin to operate under some constraints and we can no longer accept unlimited growth.

In addition, Utah is governed by a Legislature and governor who subscribe to an outdated, hard-wired, ideological mentality that is no longer relevant to societal and national survival.
