The state's drought has been at the forefront of the news, and there's already rationing going on in parts of California, so now's a good time to think about why we're not better at conserving water. Broker/blogger Moses Kagan (who's in the apartment business) suggests it's because of LA's insanely high percentage of renters. "[P]eople only conserve when they directly feel the cost of not doing so. And yet, in LA, the majority of households do not pay their own water bills, and therefore have zero incentive to conserve water." [KB, image via Ben Foster]
