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?”. Â I will stay focus on small ball adaptation efforts. Â If Southern California faces increased drought risk, how will we price scarce water? Â If we face sea level rise, how will we zone in new flood zones? Â Will insurance companies be allowed to “price gouge” and price discriminate to incentivize households to invest in precautions to reduce flood risk? Â 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? Â Have we developed robust information sharing systems to keep households informed in real time about emerging quality of life threats? Â Will we change zoning rules to allow for higher density close to the temperate Ocean areas? Â Think of how many golf courses could be converted into Hong Kong density. Â In this case, the LA Subway would be used! Â We are always rebuilding our cities. Â We have the right incentives to incorporate future expectations of challenges into our investment choices today. Â This is the logic of Climatopolis.Â I hope to meet a couple of you Wednesday night?
