Delaying Climate Change: The Impact of Cool Technologies Upon Heat Wave Meteorology
October 22@4:00– 5:15 pm CT in Zoom
Partnering with the Nelson Institute Weston Roundtable Series
Over the past several years, we have been conducting research on understanding how the implementation of reflective roof products, more reflective urban surfaces, and additional tree canopy could potentially cool cities during excessive heat events. Since heat is the leading weather-related killer in major U.S. cities, part of the evaluation involves an estimation of how many lives could be saved during deadly heat events.
