    about the environment revolved around how &%$#@! hot it's getting in Texas.  Have you heard about the prairie fires in the D/FW area and Oklahoma?  That's where I am.  We're short by 15" of rain this year.  My yard may never recover.

    I've been thinking about planting desert plants in my yard.  Something that doesn't require as much water - St. Augustine is so water-thirsty that to keep the yard green takes about $200 a month.  No thanks.  I'd love some native grasses - heck, maybe something that doesn't need mowing.

    •  Do plant desert plants in your yard! (none)
      Or best, native plants for your conditions.

      My pet peeve: Is there any more wasteful uses for water than AZ golf courses? If the the people who built them actually had to pay what the water really costs would they be there?

        The entire city of Phoenix is unsustainable if they keep building. The Colorado River already runs out before the Pacific.

        Water wars between AZ and CA ? not unlikely in the future.
