Drew Clark's column from the Deseret News on Sunday, February 1. This one touches about a rather Utah problem - Pollutants in the "inversion" that tends to happen during the winter months. This will be the subject of our upcoming Utah Breakfast Club on Thursday, February 12, 2015, from 7 a.m. to 9 a.m. Register here for this event.

SALT LAKE CITY - When it comes to better air quality along the Wasatch Front, there is a lot of beholding of motes in the eyes of neighbors, and very little considering of the beams in our own.

The biggest problem, in other words, aren’t smokestacks from industrial sources, but our very own cars and wood-burning homes.

Before I moved to Utah 18 months ago, “inversion” to me meant something about the difference in corporate taxation rates between foreign countries and the United States.


Getting better air quality in Utah will be simple if we start first with the beams, then move on to the motes.
