Climate Watch Shorts: Urban heat island effect
Dense metropolitan areas can be as much as 3C hotter than rural areas because of the amount of buildings, blacktop, people and cars. The City of Toronto instituted a bylaw in 2009 requiring every new building to have a green roof - a roof composed of plants that helps dissipate the accumulated heat. By 2100, Toronto will experience 65 days in a year where the temperature exceeds 30C.
