Letter to the editor: Drought confusion?

Confused, lost by drought policies as we are fined for nine-minute showers, told to replace our lawns with polyester and drink toilet water?

Obama just declared CO2 as the biggest threat to national security. Wholesale taking out lawns which breathe in CO2, increases this national threat. Keep the lawns, water less.

The local cities/towns with bans on plastic bags (poly) are encouraging paper bags and thus felled trees, which also absorb CO2, also causing increased water usage as more trees to be forested. So why don’t the cities/towns suspend their plastic bag bans, cooperate with the big effort and help with the drought and national security — a two-for-one that proves real motives, “the collective good.” Then I’ll believe the altruism.
