    We need to avoid draconian measures (tax hikes) to achieve clean air. We only suffer a few weeks of every year--not worth the tax hikes. Plus those few weeks of dirty air discourage businesses from moving to Utah. That keeps the population down.

    No One Of Consequence,

    I don't necessarily agree with the concept, but the truth is that taxation is very persuasive - raising the price moves folks to cut back on consumption and look for substitutes.

    More taxes and more government are always the answer.

    Forget persuasion and education. Just go to taxation.

    Fantastic letter. Thank you!

    Unfortunately, our corrupt legislature cares more about short term profits than the long term health of our state. So sad

    Agreed. There are enough people who overcompensate their shortcomings by being shortsighted super-consumers.

    We don't have the will or foresight to deal with any of this. Right now, everyone deserves a mcmansion and one ton pickup to take the kids to school. And there aren't nearly enough of us here, we're told. Economics, and supply and demand, will make the correction in time. It won't be pleasant, but it will happen.
