Editorial: Herbert should veto wood-cooking bill 9.3.2017 Salt Lake Tribune
House Bill 65 is, in many ways, Utah politics in microcosm. If approved, HB65 would prohibit any regulation of wood burning if its purpose is to cook food. It would apply to residents and to restaurants, meaning that, even on “red” days when children and the elderly are threatened by particulate pollution, there could be no limits put on smokers and grillers. There are hundreds of thousands of sources of air pollution in the valley, and people cooking with smoke probably only number in the hund...

Washington Post Editorial: Air pollution around the world takes a staggering toll 7.3.2017 Salt Lake Tribune
Despite calling for clean air and clean water in his first speech to a joint session of Congress on Tuesday, President Trump is reportedly aiming to cut the Environmental Protection Agency’s staff by a fifth. Maybe Trump really believes there are enough “superfluous” EPA programs — such as, apparently, those addressing climate change — that his administration will throw out only bathwater and no baby. In reality, focusing only on the pollution challenges of the past, not those of the present or ...

After 10 years in exile, Indian immigrants reunite with their American-born son in rural Utah 26.2.2017 Salt Lake Tribune
Green River It’s a happy time for Ken and Sarita Sah, who have just returned to Utah after 10 years of exile in their native India. But the homecoming comes with a bitter flavor and loaded with regret. On July 6, 2006, after 14 years in the United States, they departed willingly after losing an arduous appeal with immigration authorities. They were determined to work within the system, rather than disappearing among an estimated 11 million undocumented residents. It was costly. They left behi... <iframe src="http://www.sltrib.com/csp/mediapool/sites/sltrib/pages/garss.csp" height="1" width="1" > </frame>

Op-ed: Trump EPA nominee would be bad for Utahns' health 26.1.2017 Salt Lake Tribune
Donald Trump’s pick to head the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) poses a huge threat to not only the healthy and safety of Utah families, but also to the iconic public lands that make our state so special. Scott Pruitt is a climate change denier whose record isn’t pretty. He got caught working hand in glove with the oil industry, going so far as to send letters to the White House with his signature on Big Oil’s stationery. If he leads the EPA, Utah should expect Pruitt to roll back safeguar...
