Description:

As cities add roads, buildings, industry, and people, heat islands are created in urban areas. Consequences include: human discomfort and sometimes human health risks; increase in energy use, leading to release of more greenhouse gases; air pollution and increased levels of urban ozone; and higher costs because of greater water and energy use.
