Myron Willson: University of Utah can lead the way toward ‘electrifying everything’

I enjoyed reading the Oct. 6 commentary about improving air quality by University of Utah Senior Vice Presidents Michael Good and Dan Reed and I am happy the U.’s leadership is taking the problem seriously. I agree that higher education can help take a leading role to combat the issue through interdisciplinary research and collaboration.

The U. is doing even more to solve air quality and climate change than was shared in their brief piece. In 2009, the U. made major strides in reducing building emissions through one of the strictest energy-efficiency standards in the nation.
