Sunday night, a storm cleared the Salt Lake Valley air. Monday morning, I looked out over our beautiful landscape with no haze or smog. I envisioned a time when residents could enjoy such vistas almost every day of the year.
Is this dream far-fetched? Not really. While we debate the many necessary short-term steps to help clear the air ("Clean air bill passes House," Tribune, March 1), the ultimate solution must address another problem climate change.
To prevent the most severe damage from a warming Earth, we urgently need to transition to abundant, renewable energy. Powering our society with clean energy will not only mitigate the changing climate, but also allow us to breathe healthy, clean air.
