Dallas Urban Heat Island Study Shows City Second Fastest Warming Behind Phoenix

The Texas Trees Foundation's Urban Heat Island Study was conducted by Dr. Brian Stone, Professor, School of City and Regional Planning, Georgia Institute of Technology, and sponsored by Alliance Data and Wells Fargo. The report determined, “Cities do not cause heat waves – they amplify them." The ramifications of urban heat adversely affect public health, longevity of infrastructure, public opinion, and our economy. With rising temperatures come higher costs for energy and a threat to our energy supply.
