Letter: Utah Division of Air Quality bows to industry 27.8.2014 Salt Lake Tribune

The responsibility of industry is always to know before any activity. But the Herbert administration is historically industry friendly at the expense of the ...

A massive stream of wastewater tainted with hydrocarbons has been flowing into Utah from oil and gas mining on Colorado’s West Slope. Evaporation ponds used to process the contaminated water in Grand County have released tons of toxic chemicals into the air since April 2008.

Letter: What plans for Utah air pollution? 23.8.2014 Salt Lake Tribune
Gov. Gary Herbert boasted a successful trade mission to Mexico in April, which included a clean air highlight. Once touted as one of the most polluted cities in the world, Mexico City has cut its pollution in half in the face of a growing population. Our inversion season is right around the corner. (Remember it came early last year.) I’m still waiting to hear what our governor learned and what changes he plans to implement. Having a family member who has yet to recover from a neurological event ...

Letter: Navajo power plant deal nothing to celebrate 8.8.2014 Salt Lake Tribune

It was a Kumbaya moment. Like other newspapers, The Salt Lake Tribune cheered the plan in its July 29 editorial. But this deal negotiated generations of polluted air in exchange for flexibility.
