The usual suspects, with the usual extremist claims that they use against progress.

If they had their way, we would be living in caves, burning wood and peat for fires and eating rotting dinosaur flesh and wearing animal skins until some easilly cured disease killed us.

Don't stop progress, it will find solutions to pollution problems that do not involve either paying lawyers, or ending the internal combustion engine. Meanwhile, get out of the way.

We will find progress?

It's 2013. Utah is being compared to LA or Bejing our air quality is so bad.

If you can't breathe, you don't have to worry about living in a cave.

Utah's large valleys suffer so much from winter inversions and the subsequent health problems they create that we should take the lead in protecting clean air. Some of family members have a hard time breathing our during our winter inversions and two close neighbors often have to leave home for weeks at a time to survive. If treating pollution drives up the cost of energy it is worth it.

Regional haze in southern Utah's national parks. The last time they traced this most was coming from Sothen Nevada and ifrom Southern California. since they won't ban cars from their freeways not much hope of clearing ihaze.
No name environmental group must not have gotten the memo. Probably didn't exit then and didn't Google the existing studies.
Sorry about the Mount Olympus Widerness getting nailed by this winters bad inversion but that wasn't caused by power plants either.

the bottom line is this. if the power companies and the oil companies had been spending on green tech instead of super pacs and ads on t.v. to make people think they are the good guys they would have wind power and solar in place and making even bigger profits then they both are now. the plant by delta the area is sunny most of the time. sloar farms. st george has done it. why not the guys with the real money.

Aerial haze is a naturally occuring phenomena. It is not the Polluted and Poisonous air that Utah is experiencing. Call that stuf what it is: Air pollution.
It is killing thousands of Utahns a year yet when Utah Physicians call attention to it they are told to 'shut up' and that they don't know what they are talking about.
Life is cheap along the Wasatch front, isn't it?
