KUER News and RadioWest are bringing you a series of stories and conversations on Utah's air. It's easy to look at the haze on a red air quality day and say that something needs to be done about it. But what? We'll be talking about the roles that individuals, industry and government can play in cleaning up Utah's air quality. We'll also look at what the costs may to be to our economy and our health if we don't.

Breaking the Pollution Habit

Industry, business and the general public all contribute to Utah’s bad air, but there’s general agreement that cars and trucks are a major part of the problem. That means that our reasonable habits of driving to work, waiting in a warm car to pick up the kids up from school, or driving to the mountains to ski or hike all contribute to our bad air. Monday a panel of guests will join us to discuss what it takes to change our habits, on a personal level, and what those individual efforts mean for big change. We’re hoping to hear from you: how have you changed your habits?
