"January also left northern valleys with an inversion that trapped foul air in lower elevation areas for days on end. That episode has led to a reinvigorated debate over Utah's general air quality" This is a very underwhelming statement. In as much as the major metropolitan areas of Utah are among the worst in PM 2.5 air quality in the country there should not be a debate about "general air quality", instead there should be an urgent call to action. The State has been working on a PM2.5 Strategy for over 10 years. We need to get serious about this and soon. It was hardly on the Governor's priority list. For the many good things this State offers, we don't need this to become a roadblock or a distraction. lets hope we can collectively have the resolve to make needed changes.
