They Call It Haze
Originally uploaded by Clint Gardner
While the pollution that besets the Salt Lake valley every year creates some spectacular sunsets, it is still pollution non-the less. Because of the nature of the valley and our temperature inversions, we regularly get "Red Air Quality Days" and people are encouraged not to drive. The local TV media often tries to gussy up the problem by calling the pollution "haze."
Ultimately we all bear responsibility for the problem and should act accordingly to lessen the impact of the smog days.
