Regional Heat Comparison 2060

Variations in regional heating and cooling are the result of changes in land use and land cover. For example, in Healthy Harvest Hubs, the massive removal of impervious surface and reversion to desert open space on the periphery of the urban core results in significant regional cooling. In comparison, the reduced outdoor vegetation and water use in True Cost of Water results in increased temperatures in the urban core.
