Webinar: Mitigating the Urban Heat Island - Aired April 25, 2012

Coupling rising temperatures with higher surface temperatures has the potential to render many areas within the Intermountain West region uncomfortable, if not dangerous, without aggressive air conditioning usage and consequent increases in energy consumption. As is often the case, the risks associated with higher temperatures impact the most sensitive populations, including children, the elderly, those with health conditions and low-income residents. This webinar features local adaptation responses from communities that have enacted urban forestry resolutions, heat relief networks, and used cutting-edge technology to combat rising temperatures.
