that one time I went to a rally.
When our professor Adrian mentioned the rally for clean air happening on Saturday, we were pretty excited to come and try and "march with the masses of humanity" and "make some noise" as he put it. There were plenty of things that we were advocating here: expanding mass transit, making public transportation more affordable, issuing a 10-year moratorium on new freeway construction. Most people here were also worried about the impact of industry – limiting expansion plans and cutting permits for fossil-fuel power plants, refineries and mining. Utah's air is pretty awful. We're already at a disadvantage because of inversion, but there is a significant amount of man-made pollutants that we ought to encourage our government to regulate more of. Thats the skinny on why we decided to spend a Saturday being all socially active and stuff.
