Well, let’s see where this newly called “Team” should focus their attention to reach a solution. According to statistics from the State’s Department of Environmental Quality, the following are the major sources of all this pollution along the Wasatch Front:

57 percent – generated by vehicles

32 percent – generated from area sources such as small businesses, homes and other sources.

11 percent – generated by industry

Are there any easy, quick, and cost effective solutions here? I don’t see any.

The big elephant in this room is the first one – 57 percent generated by vehicles. That solution will not be easy, quick, and will be very expensive to both the State and Utah residents.

Sounds like a great start. Is Senator Dayton one one the team?

What can be done with the smoke from houses and cars and industry. Nothing, when people over whelmed the area.
