(KSL News) Utah's inversion pollution is among the worst in the nation, and some Utah moms are trying to do something about it.
The Utah Moms for Clean Air committee met with other local groups this morning. They want to form a coalition to promote cleaner air in Utah.
Pediatrician and mother Michelle Hofmann said the number of children she treats with respiratory problems is a huge motivator. "It is definitely worse when the air is inverted. I leave Primary Children's in the morning, I work at night, and I look down into that valley, and it's disgusting," Hofmann said.
Three things you can do to keep the air clean are: drive less, don't idle your car, and run all your errands in a single trip.
