Replant the trees

There is a lawsuit about the Mesa winds.

These same people tried to tell us there was not a water problem on the Mesa. After the winds, they certainly will go after those darn sun rays.

The solution is simple. If everyone who lives on the Mesa would replace the size and quantity of trees that were removed so their houses could be built, there would again be the natural barrier that existed previously, which would block all of the particles that the Air Pollution Control District needs to justify its involvement.

The wind patterns have changed because of the deforestation of the Mesa. Any increase in windblown particles in that area is due to the effects of people living on the Mesa, not those driving on the beach.

Show me the level of wind-blown particles on the Mesa in 1950. We were driving on the beach back then.
