Re "Too darn hot," Opinion, March 14 William deBuys painted a doom-and-gloom picture of my city, Phoenix, based on climate change and water use, warning if we don't take better care of our land and resources, Phoenicians will flee.

That's why we recognized the need for future-oriented solutions like the Central Arizona Project canals and the Groundwater Management Act, the latter of which requires builders to demonstrate they will be able to have a 99-year water supply.
