Urban Heat Island Conference Report

The Texas Trees Foundation hosted a half day conference about the Urban Heat Island Effect featuring a keynote by Dr. Brian Stone, author of The City and the Coming Climate: Climate Change in the Places we Live (for a short review of that book see earlier post, How I Got Religion on Trees).  Download my report of the conference: TX Trees Fdn Urban Heat Conf Report.  We also heard from Dr. Robert Haley about the public health impacts of climate change; from David Hitchcock about the Dallas urban heat island study; and from Matt Grubisich about green infrastructure.
