Utah is a red state (check out the red rocks!) with a very healthy outdoor recreation industry. Its politicians are slowly beginning to realize that outdoor recreation in smog and the drying of the state’s Great Salt Lake is bad for business. We’ve identified leaders naming climate change, as opposed to talking in “air quality” euphemisms, and those calling for clean energy solutions.
Voting rights are not a concern in this vote-by-mail state, but gerrymandering is (and should be).
Evan McMullin, running as an independent, doesn’t sound great on climate (some vague promises on innovation), but he’s better than his opponent who is a loud cheerleader for fossil fuels.
