Turn of the water to the golf courses first. We have an unbelievable number of them in Southern California. I think golf should be done in places that are self-watering, like the old courses in Scotland. We even have Municipal Courses, where the taxpayers subsidize the watering! Then stop subsidizing agriculture with artificially low water rates. If farmers, pool owners, etc, can afford to pay the same water rates as everybody else, let them. Poor people will not have pools, or vast green lawns, so their rates will be low. Almonds and rice will be a bit more expensive and tend to be imported from places that have more water. Maybe that will move North, as climates shift. Trying to keep everything like it was before climate change is just too unsustainable.


We're flying electric helicopters on Mars yet you can't turn on your clothes dryer in Texas. That's because scientists are in charge of Mars, and Republicans are in charge of Texas.
