The alternative fuels industry in the U.S. is facing many complex questions, but they can be distilled down to two main concerns: Is there still a place for low-carbon fuels in a nation that has withdrawn from the Paris Climate Agreement? And, would these fuels be relevant if there were fewer government incentives backing them and fewer emissions reduction goals driving the conversation forward?
The answer to both of those questions is an unqualified “yes.”
Regardless of the political maneuvering at a national or state level, Salt Lake City will still face air quality issues this coming winter that impact its economy and quality of life. It’s a challenge that needs to be addressed to preserve the area’s robust tourism economy and reputation as one of the country’s premier alpine skiing destinations. Salt Lake City’s smog inversion will exist despite disagreement about its root cause, and the smog is indifferent to the topic of emissions regulations.
