    Facing Climate Change In The City

    Urban Living Faces Challenges As Climate Change Worsens

    Grace Flynn, September 29, 2018 (Maine Public Radio)

    “…Around 55 percent of the world lives in an urban area in 2018, and a United Nations study released in May estimates that will increase to around 68 percent by 2050…[But rarely is the focus of climate change impacts] on cities…[and] many people living in urban areas are unaware of the impact global warming is having on their lives…[but] signs of climate change are crystal clear in almost any city in the world…in the form of unprecedented heat waves, floods, droughts, and wildfires…[H]eat waves have had a particularly strong impact on cities due to their already dangerous status as [microclimates called] heat islands…[C]limate change is increasing the heat in cities, and this can cause a multitude of health and financial problems for anyone living in a city…

    [Heat stress] will also cause an increased demand for additional electric generating capacity by 2050, which will end up costing U.S. residents hundreds of billions of dollars, according to the EPA…Cities across the world are making efforts, some including nuclear power and building regulations, to reduce their emission of greenhouse gasses…[Individuals can plant small shade plants or other greenery, use public transportation, conserve electricity, and reduce their carbon footprint. The] general population needs to realize that climate change is not just going to change the future for good but is already forcing negative changes in our day to day lives…You don’t have to be a scientist or environmentalist to make a real change; you just have to care.” click here for more
