Just One Question: How to ride one’s bike during inversion season

January 14, 2015 in KRCL Music Blog by Lara Jones

It’s winter, the inversion is in full effect, and we can all see, maybe even taste, the chunky gunk we’re breathing. So we have just one question: how can bike riders protect their lungs on a red air quality day? To find the answer, Lara Jones recently paid a visit to David Eyre Davis of the Bike Collective. He says cyclists may want to think pink.

The Beehive - Solar Day     

 

Solar Day, on July 27th,  is an opportunity for the community to learn about the mechanics and benefits of increasing usage of solar power. Despite the state’s problems with pollution, Utah is still one of the highest coal-burning states, and a switch to renewable solar energies could help address the winter smog and other problems.
