SOLUTIONS: Some version of a pollution tax or cap-and-trade system is likely to be the best way to attain environmental benefits while minimizing the costs to American producers and consumers. It is also the form of environmental regulation best able to keep direct intervention by government at a minimum. Given the alternatives, friends of markets and limited government would be wise to move beyond the negative associations caused by the recent debate, and to give market-based environmental…

DATA: Link between air pollution and learning disabilities.     The researchers from Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai in Manhattan said this is the first time that an association is made between black carbon exposure and decreasing attention skills among low-income, urban children. The study found boys were more susceptible than girls. Black carbon is an indicator of combustion sources such as diesel and has a wide range of public health impacts.    Read more...

The Utah Department of Air Quality considers PM 2.5, sulphur dioxide and nitrogen dioxide to be "interchangeable" as particulates under current air-permitting rules. The total for all three in Salt Lake County is 39,119 tons per year. Using the conservative figures from the EPA study, when less was known about the health consequences of airborne chemicals, the county’s pollution burden costs about $12 billion annually.

DATA: The Persistent Cold-Air Pool Study (PCAPS) was conducted in Utah's Salt Lake valley from 1 December 2010 to 7 February 2011. The field campaign's primary goal was to improve understanding of the physical processes governing the evolution of multiday cold-air pools (CAPs) that are common in mountain basins during the winter.

OUTCRY - NEW WEB SITE: We are Communities For Clean Air.  Our group began when Stericycle was issued a Notice of Violation (NOV) by the Utah Department of Air Quality, which indicates that they failed their stack tests numerous times over the last 18 months or so and that they falsified documents (Article regarding NOV and falsifying documents & StericycleNOV). As concerned Utah citizens we felt an obligation to inform others of the harm Stericycle is doing to our communities.
