Edwards pushed option of tougher state air quality rules 17.7.2014 Salt Lake Tribune
As Utah faces — and expects to fail — upcoming federal smog standards, Rep. Becky Edwards is vowing to bring back a bill that would allow the state to adopt air quality rules that are more stringent than federal regulations. Her previous proposal, HB121, was one of the most closely watched of some two dozen air quality bills during the 2014 Legislature. It was defeated as critics warned of unintended consequences and argued Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) rules are sufficient. At Wednesda...

Op-ed: State leaders need to take their faith in coal and ‘let it go’ 21.6.2014 Salt Lake Tribune
Assumptions, ideologies, Carbon County — and Princess Elsa I am constantly amazed by assumptions which are never stated — implicit assumptions — so ingrained that they’ve become ideologies. Here are some examples from the pulpit of the recent Governor’s Energy Development Summit: Lt. Gov. Spencer Cox and energy adviser Cody Stewart spoke of “clean coal” and “clean-burning coal.” There is no such thing. Burning coal produces heat and releases large quantities of CO2. That’s how it “works.” Increa...

With no funding, Utah clean-air panel dies as smog lives on 14.6.2014 Salt Lake Tribune
As smog smothered Salt Lake City during the 2013 Legislature, protests about air pollution were loud and frequent — and lawmakers responded by passing SB275 to create an interlocal panel to find ways to expand use of cleaner fuels, especially natural gas. That group — dubbed the Alternative Energy Interlocal Entity Board — was then ballyhooed as a great hope to improve air quality. Some high-profile city officials and lawmakers were appointed, and the panel began to meet. But the board is about ...

Op-ed: The air around Vernal is killing infants 31.5.2014 Salt Lake Tribune
Bumper stickers in Vernal say, “Honk if you love drilling.” Vernal politicians certainly do. Our state lawmakers do, and our Congressional delegation does. With jobs, increased tax base, new community recreation centers, burgeoning store fronts on main street, people with money to spend — what’s not to like? Well, perhaps burying newborns. Evidence continues to mount that state and federal regulators have allowed the creation of a pollution nightmare in the Uinta Basin. Most cities with po...

Council members have made only fleeting references to the fireworks issue since Becker unveiled his $229 million spending plan for next fiscal year.
