On March 6th, I will hitch a ride to Pasadena to join a distinguished panel to participate in a KPCC Event titled; “Global Climate Change: Can Humanity Survive?”. I will stay focus on small ball adaptation efforts. If Southern California faces increased drought risk, how will we price scarce water? If we face sea level rise, how will we zone in new flood zones? Will insurance companies be allowed to “price gouge” and price discriminate to incentivize households to invest in precautions to reduce flood risk? If electricity demand is likely to soar in summer, will we enroll more businesses and households on dynamic pricing to make sure the grid doesn’t blackout at peak demand? Have we developed robust information sharing systems to keep households informed in real time about emerging quality of life threats? Will we change zoning rules to allow for higher density close to the temperate Ocean areas? Think of how many golf courses could be converted into Hong Kong density. In this case, the LA Subway would be used! We are always rebuilding our cities. We have the right incentives to incorporate future expectations of challenges into our investment choices today. This is the logic of Climatopolis. I hope to meet a couple of you Wednesday night?
