Utah: Sleeping Giant of Clean, Safe, Renewable Energy

Utah is apparently blessed with extremely abundant sources of clean energy: chiefly geothermal, wind and solar.

An article in the SL Trib on Dec 1 says that Utah is estimated to have enough clean energy capacity from these three sources to supply well over 1.4 billion people with clean renewable energy.

So let us move away from dirty, harmful, environmental damaging, climate changing, non-renewable fossil fuels such as coal ... and toward clean, SAFE renewables such a geothermal, wind and solar. (Nuclear energy is apparently neither safe nor renewable and leads to many problems associated with uranium mining, hazardous radioactive waste storage, national security, nuclear proliferation and is extremely expensive to bring online.) Read the article and please join us to work for clean air, clean water and a better, smarter, healthier, sustainable Utah Valley and Planet. Thank you.
