State Rep. Ed Redd, a Cache Valley physician, is featured Science Unwrapped speaker Nov. 8. Redd was recently appointed to Utah Gov. Gary Herbert's Clean Air Action Team.

The characteristics that make Cache Valley, home of Utah State University, an enchanting place to live — encircling, majestic peaks; pastoral scenes of grazing cattle and snowy landscapes — are among the factors that contribute to one of the area’s not-so-attractive qualities: smoggy winters.

 

We can easily see the problem, but what do we do about it?

 

Cache Valley physician Ed Redd, who represents District 7 in the State of Utah House of Representatives, has long pondered this challenge and presents his insights at Science Unwrapped Friday, Nov. 8, at 7 p.m. in the Emert Auditorium (Room 130) of the Eccles Science Learning Center. Redd;s talk, “Cache Valley Air: Homegrown Problems, Homegrown Solutions” is free and open to all ages.

 

Prior to serving in the state’s House of Representatives, Redd, who practiced internal medicine for 16 years, served as deputy director and medical officer of the Bear River Health Department. He chaired the Cache Valley Air Quality Task Force, seeking solutions to the region’s unique air quality challenges.

 

In October 2013, Utah Gov. Gary Herbert appointed Redd to the state’s newly formed Clean Air Action Team, a group charged with reviewing and recommending regulatory and statutory remedies to Utah’s pollution woes.

 

Hands-on learning activities and educational exhibits follow Redd’s Nov. 8 talk.

 

Hosted by USU’s College of Science, Friday’s Science Unwrapped gathering is the third and final presentation in the program’s fall 2013 “Toward Fewer Bad Air Days” series. A new series begins in Jan. 2014.
