Proper thinking Californians spent decades coasting on the efforts of their predecessors who built energy and water infrastructure, demonizing efforts to build more for a growing population in an effort to signal their virtue in rejecting such awful "anti-green" projects. Through it all, in an exercise in magical thinking, Californians expected the water and energy to flow freely. Somehow.
And now they've run out of other people's infrastructure for both.
Despite unsustainable borrowing.
Behold the reality stick about to strike. How splendid.
UPDATE: Faith in central planning has to take a hit when the planners are dumb as rocks.
Yeah, who would have guessed that thinking like that would lead to San Francisco being a city where only the fantastically wealthy or desperately poor can live, with middle class people priced out.
