Portrait Of A Planet

December 23, 1990

Did everyone marvel at those stunning photos of clear-cut forests in "Portrait of a Planet" (Nov. 11)? I would be very surprised if the ongoing devastation in Northern California has nothing to do with the decrease in rainfall in Southern California since World War II. For what it's worth, I'm planting trees in my own yard, and I'll give them all the water they need, Bradley's 10%-water-reduction decree be damned. If Central Valley farmers can throw away their cheap water running sprinklers in the noonday sun on surplus crops like cotton and alfalfa, I can take all the 15-minute showers I please.
