Letter: Utah needs LDS Church support to clean up air
First Published Jan 25 2014 01:01 am • Last Updated Jan 25 2014 01:01 am

I would like to thank Elder Christofferson for his video regarding public health in Utah as it relates to alcohol ("LDS Church: Don’t change Utah liquor laws," Tribune, Jan. 21). Even though I am an ex-Mormon who occasionally imbibes, I agree 100 percent with his statement that the LDS Church does "care about the culture and the environment that exist in this state and the people who live in it because more than half the citizens of Utah are members of the LDS Church, but our concern is for the general public, for the general welfare, for the circumstances, the environment that people live in, raise their children in."

This is a statement all Utahns can get behind, regardless of religion (or lack of religion).

In the spirit of protecting the environment that we live in and are raising our children in, I humbly ask that The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints make a similar video and statement advocating for solutions to the air-quality problems in Utah.

One word from that organization, and the entire state would begin working toward long-term solutions to solve the pollution problem strangling our pretty, great state.
