31. Here is Southern California, we spend very little to heat our houses and buildings, so

it's OK if we spend a little more to get water. It's a trade-off.

In L.A. we have water rationing. I'm trying to convert my yard to drought-resistant plants. As a native to the Midwest, it makes me feel kind of sad, but we have to do this.

In other parts of the country, people spend small fortunes to heat their houses. We don't.

I agree however that we should simply directly tax ourselves rather than float bonds. It would be cheaper in the long run.

We are developing solar energy, and I support that effort too. It makes sense out here where rain and cloudy days are a rarity.
