All cities have the same effect all over the planet. Cities trap heat because of all the concrete.
More trees and plants are needed in cities to provide shade. Thank you for this post Agnes.

We should be able to sue cities for pollution, acid rain and temperature change.

Climatic changes are global, and cities have been warmer than rural areas because they do trap the heat.

I remember the seniors in my town talked about this back in the 1970's. Of course nobody listened to them back then, what do seniors know anyway? Now it seems to be true, but it is probably too late to do anything about it.

Perhaps things like "green roofs", planting more trees, solar panels, fewer cars etc would help.
