“Cities do not cause heat waves — they amplify them.”
The Dallas area is heating up and not in a good way.
A recent study by Brian Stone, a professor at Georgia Institute of Technology, found that Dallas is heating up faster than nearly every other American city. Only Phoenix, Arizona, is warming faster.
“The study … is a wake-up call for all of us who call Dallas and North Texas home,” said Texas Trees Foundation CEO Janette Monear in announcing findings of the Dallas 2017 Urban Heat Island Effect Study.
The study was conducted for the foundation with partial funding from Alliance Data of Dallas.
