    The air pollution from burning wood in a wood stove for just nine hours is equivalent to driving a medium sized car for an entire year.

    Cooking a single hamburger on an under-fire gas burner is equivalent to driving a diesel truck for 143 miles.

    Air quality control in the USA is a scam, needlessly harms the health of millions and hastens the death of our elderly.

    So if what they are doing is for Cache county then why is there a picture of SL county attached to this article? According to our state government SL county is not affecting the northern state, or is that just his way of pretending SL county is not spreading north?

    LA county smog was so bad in the 60's it spread 90 miles inland to Bakersfield and Sacramento. What our governor is doing is manipulating numbers so he doesn't have to come down on commercial vehicles in SL and reducing the brown smog spreading north.

    Commercial vehicles, 16 lane roads, and salt and mud are polluting the whole state, personal vehicle emission has nothing to do with pollution anymore. In fact many homes in Utah have reduced the number of vehicles in a household to the point that they are irrelevant polluters.

    If one drives the millions of acres of road in SL valley its obvious that commercial use vehicles are over abundant and out of control. Then people only work half a day to, when the leave for lunch at noon, they never go back to work and drive aimlessly along our happy trails.
