The Lovely Fruits of Non-Labor

(via Drudge)

Aren't government subsidies grand?

Regulators will probably prevent these farmers from selling their water allotment, or they'll threaten them with severe penalties that would eat up the potential profit from not-growing food and sending their H20 southward.

I've already stated time and time again, desalinating nuclear power plants along our coastline would be an elegant, technically feasible, easy to construct fairly quickly, and Gaia-friendly way to help end SoCal's water and energy dependence.

But fearmongering NIMBYs will continue to prevent a sensible solution like that. Maybe if we convince them that it would make us more like France, or Japan, that'd be the way to sell it...
