We won’t have lasting clean air and a healthy planet without switching from polluting coal and oil to clean, safe renewable energy to power our vehicles, homes and businesses. Our state government has the power to really clean the air. The quickest and best way to clean our air is to elect a “clean air/clean energy” legislature and executive. Until that happens, insufficient progress will be made.

The UVEF Clean Air Billboard Messaging Campaign Continues in SL and UT Counties

At times, the U.S. EPA reports Utah Valley’s air is the worst in the entire nation! Having very bad air pollution damages us and our families, shortens our lives, makes us sick, costs us money, hurts business, damages our reputation and our economy. It blocks our view of the beautiful nature that surrounds us. We must stop polluting the air! How? Most importantly (1) we need to elect only leaders who “get it” and will take the necessary actions to make it happen, with no excuses. And (2) we must switch from dirty fossil fuel energy to clean energy such as the sun and wind, and make sure our wastes get fully recycled. Click to see our suggested solutions.

UVEF Guide


Personal Responsible Stewardship

When it comes to being truly responsible stewards of Creation—the air, water

and land, the environment, the planet—virtually no one in our culture behaves completely as we should. Directly or indirectly, we all pollute, generate waste and harm natural resources. But we should and must become much better, more responsible stewards if we are to diminish both the damage we are doing to Creation and, in the process, the harm we inflict on others, ourselves and the planet.

The UVEF has prepared the following simplified, straightforward guide for responsible personal stewardship of Creation, the environment, the planet.

Our May 15 public forum, as reported on by the Seattle Times, the San Francisco Chronicle and U.S. News, focused on the proposed “restoration” of Utah Lake in exchange for giving ownership of 20,000 acres of public land to a private developer. The developer would build island communities in the middle and perimeter of the Lake to house up to half a million people (2.5 times the current size of Salt Lake City). The proposal includes killing all the fish life in the lake and almost all invasive plant life along its shoreline before reintroducing native species. The proposal includes building multiple causeways across the lake that would open up the West Side of Utah Lake to rapid and extensive development. The proposed project, on a fresh-water lake such as Utah Lake, has never been done before on this scale. During the forum an authoritative panel examined the proposal’s effect on the Lake, its watershed, Utah Valley and the environment. Audience questions and comments were welcomed. The forum was on May 15 at the Orem Public Library. To view the developer’s lengthy proposal click here. To view some of the objections to the proposal click these two links, here and here.

The developer has agreed to a followup forum with a different format sometime in the near future. The new format will allow the developer and those who question the proposal  more time to present their respective cases. Join our email list to hear when the new forum will take place.
