C4 Plants Eat More Carbon

I wonder if drought tolerant plants absorb more carbon if they are C4 plants and not carbon leaky C3 plants? That would be double the eco-karma if you planted C4, drought tolerant plants. Less water use, more carbon fixing. What species?

Spring in Boise is a oxygen rich, moisture laden, and fleeting affair. I wish the foothills would stay green until August. Get out there immediately before it dries up into a crusty mass of dead grass. Pretend it is millions of years ago and the climate is tropical and there are dense forests of avocado trees. I've heard there are avocado leaf fossils in the foothills. Anyone know where?
Make a rock sculpture for post-eschaton inhabitants to help them remember how to dance.
