What a piece of crap he is, he's going to destroy the whole state!
He says they have 2 years supply of water and so Arizona is "open for business" and they keep building developments.

Meanwhile, the dustbowl lasted a decade and that didn't even take place in a natural DESERT!

Lake Mead, which opened in 1934, and Lake Powell, in 1963 – are on the river and were designed to hold 55 million acre-feet of water. (One acre-foot equals 325,852 gallons.) At 30% of capacity combined, they now hold less water than at any time since soon after they were opened. In total, 36 million acre-feet, or nearly 12 trillion gallons, of storage space is empty.

Last August, as extreme heat and drought dropped the lake levels further, the federal government issued a formal declaration of water shortage. Translated into the legal details of the pact involving two countries, seven states, and 30 tribes that guides the river’s management, the declaration meant that Arizona’s share of the river will be cut by 512,000 acre-feet this year, or 166 billion gallons.
