One of the clearest problems that Utah faces is the very unclear pollution within the inversion days experienced in January and February. With economic growth accelerating, population growth not far behind, many signs point to continued and worsening periods of inversion. Are there positive signs? If so, what are they? What policy levers does the state and the legislature have to address these hazy and unhealthy days? And what of the Environmental Protection Agency’s “Tier 3” fuel standards? Will the national rollout of EPA rules help or hurt air quality in Utah?

Confirmed panelists include:

  • Kerry Kelly, University of Utah and Utah State Air Quality Board
  • Alan Matheson, Senior Environmental Advisor, Gov. Gary Herbert
  • Lee J. Peacock, Utah Petroleum Association
  • Shawn Teigen, Research Director, Utah Foundation
  • Moderator – Drew Clark, Founder, Utah Breakfast Club; Of Counsel, Kirton McConkie
