In the midst of the drought, here in Arizona, the rah-rah development conferences go on, with smooth-talking hucksters claiming that we need to prepare for millions more people who will be moving here ("Dry new world," HCN, 5/13/13). I'm not sure what will start the inevitable exodus from the Phoenix metro, but the combination of 30 or more days over 115 degrees and the Central Arizona Project canal going dry won't help the real estate market very much.
