Perverse Economics Of Water In The Desert
"Phoenix sees itself more an oasis in the desert rather than a community living with the desert... Even with the searing temperatures... you can sometimes almost forget that the nation's sixth-largest city rests in the middle of the desert... Before they even land, people flying into Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport can see a 560-foot jet of water bursting from an artificial lake. The jet is listed in the Guinness Book of Records as being the highest fountain."
