The Governor can't control everything BUT he can do a lot more than he is
doing! I am sick and tired of hearing the ignorant excuse that reducing
pollution means less jobs. Reducing pollution does not need to mean loss of
jobs - just doing the work in a less polluting way.Can the Governor
Doctors are only theory.We can pray away the pollution.
Ah, what do those doctors know about anything?
I listened to the good Dr. in a radio interview yesterday. In true elitist
fashion he suggests, the smelters be shut down for the inversion, refineries
shut down for the inversion, people be prevented from driving, but he said he
drives during the inversion because he has a job to do and he can't wait
for public transportation to get to work and the air quality is to bad to ride
his bike. Notice that all their suggestions cost someone else money or jobs.
Free UTA, on a national scale, 70 percent of jobs are not accessible by public
transit. The smelters are a 24 7 operation, you have to make sure they are
emptied of materials, then it takes days to start up. Demand for copper
doesn't stop for an inversion. Demand for fuel goes on during an
inversion. Maybe, the good doctor would be willing to send all his copper back
and close his practice during an inversion. Thus no one would be driving to his
office during the inversion.
They also want to drop freeway speed limits to 55,======== I give this one my #1.Slowing drive speeds from 75 to 55 reduces
emmisions by over 25%,It's easy to implement,and public safety
is improved because there are fewer accidents due to sliding and reduced
visibility - espesecally at night!Making companies cut back
production by 50% during those times would be my #2 choice, not for being
pro-business, but because of the additional public safety factor for everyone
Do they expect 50% of Kennecot and oil refinery employees to take a furlough?
Should 50% of people who drive to work take vacation tiem or unpaid leave? Are
50% of the people pushing these actions going to stay home from work? I find all
of these actions unlikely.
So long as private business turn a profit, why would our Utah legislation do
