Over the past three decades, wildfires in the western United States have been getting larger and more frequent, according to new research from the University of Utah.

Krauthammer: The myth of ‘settled science’ 24.2.2014 Salt Lake Tribune
I repeat: I’m not a global warming believer. I’m not a global warming denier. I’ve long believed that it cannot be good for humanity to be spewing tons of carbon dioxide into the atmosphere. I also believe that those scientists who pretend to know exactly what this will cause in 20, 30 or 50 years are white-coated propagandists. “The debate is settled,” asserted propagandist in chief Barack Obama in his latest State of the Union address. “Climate change is a fact.” Really? There is nothing more ...

DE KALB, Miss. -- America's newest, most expensive coal-fired power plant is hailed as one of the cleanest on the planet, thanks to government-backed technology that removes carbon dioxide and keeps it out of the atmosphere. But once the carbon is stripped away, it will be used to do something that is not so green at all.

Editorial: Utah must prepare for impact of climate change 6.11.2013 Salt Lake Tribune
Ignoring or downplaying the potential of climate change to make life in Utah much different — and drier — in the future won’t make the impacts go away. Policy makers must acknowledge what’s happening and act to mitigate the inevitable. Conservation must be the key, not continued reliance on the next big water project.
