For me the biggest disconnect San Diego has with its own future is how precious and few the water resources are in S.D. and yet we still continue to waste water with no regard. Look around. Why do we need lawns on the edge of curbs in parking lots? How many times have you passed by a public park to see sprinklers spraying water into the wind and onto the road for half an hour or more? How many public buildings have native plants for their landscaping? San Diego needs to wake up to the reality of our future. Check your almanac. It doesn’t rain much here.
