Which urban areas will experience the most climate warming?

The so-called urban heat island effect is created by the abundance of asphalt and concrete, smog and heat emanating from buildings and vehicles. "There is a disproportionate relationship between the size of the urban area and its impact on the human experience of climate change," says Lei Zhao, professor of civil and environmental engineering at the University of Illinois-Urbana Champagne. To minimize the impact of global warming, we should “plan based on city-specific information, not regional projections,” says Zhao.
