        Climate Change is Increasing the Urban Temperature Divide

        Use this interactive from Climate Central to see how climate change is increasing the temperature gap between urban areas and their surrounding rural areas in cities across the United States. In the accompanying classroom activity, students use the engineering design process to reduce urban heat. Students consider the broader implications of urban heat, including a higher public health risk of heat stroke, and the financial and electrical burden of increased air conditioner use.
