(Before It's News)

I live close to a major Mormon Temple in Westwood Los Angeles.  Take a look at the photo below.

The temple has ripped out its grass and is planting low water intensive plants.  According to Google, this has been a major new item.   To an economist like me, it is obvious that this adaptation would have occurred years ago if LADWP were to raise water prices.   The economics of urban adaptation to climate change are quite straightforward.  Simply let prices reflect scarcity.  My Climatopolis predictions are starting to play out. I feel like one of the witches in MacBeth.
