It’s hot in Houston, I can tell you from first-hand experience. Triple-digit heat is here to stay until the fall. The city’s concrete sprawl is making things worse, turning it and the surrounding area into an urban heat island. A report from Climate Central ranked Houston as the fourth-worst urban heat island, behind New Orleans, Newark, and New York. These head islands are in the news more than ever as we
see record temperatures around the world. Impermeable surfaces, lack of greenery, tall buildings, and heat created by human activities makes cities hotter than other areas in outlying regions experiencing the same weather.
