Suburban Desert

36% More For Water? Suburbs Say Milwaukee's All Wet

No one made suburbanites build in unsustainable areas. They did so because it was cheap (artificially so, by government subsidies), to get away from central city minorities and poor, and for the 5-acre yards they so adore. If suburbanites choose to continue to live environmentally irresponsibly, there is a price to be paid.

Talk about the culture of convenience and entitlement. Surely as the good little, conservative, uber-capitalists most suburbanites are, they know that water is more and more becoming our world's most precious resource. [Finally, we're all realizing this.] So they obviously can understand that as demand for something increases, while the supply remains stable or diminishes, price will go up.

And, if the Sprawlestinas don't like it, well...good luck.
