Letter: Concerned about artificial turf at Midtown Plaza



I saw a headline, “Carmel to install artificial turf at Midtown Plaza.”

My reaction to that is: Artificial grass will neither absorb CO2 nor give us oxygen in return. I wonder what kind of chemicals it will give off?

It will not mitigate the heat island that was created downtown by cutting down such trees as were there and ripping up gardens for more paving and energy-intensive construction.

And Carmel likes to fashion itself a “green” city.
