Moench: Mexico City solved similar bad-air mess
< Previous Page
What we should pray for is a political storm, for new leaders who don’t treat cleaning up our air as a joke, who don’t use our geography as an excuse, who really "decide to do something about it." The largest clean air rally the state has ever seen will take place at the Capitol, Jan. 25 at noon: "Clean Air, No Excuses Rally." Mexico City has proven, "It can be done."
Brian Moench is president of Utah Physicians for a Healthy Environment and a member of Union of Concerned Scientists.
