Heatwave & climate change
Maybe the hot weather will focus minds on what it might mean to lose the shade along the suburban streets.
Imagine 5-8 degrees hotter!
Yes, I agree, it is an indication of what lies ahead should as predicted the climate changes – obviously those in power and the well off are not bothered it is the poor who will be come victims of heat wave as they can not afford to leave in environments with good cover trees or afford to go on holidays abroad.
As someone with fair complexion, I’m certainly appreciating the shade of our trees, and their cooling effect, not least because less heat is being reflected back off paved areas and parked cars. Trees are a God-send. 🙂
BTW, The shade of trees also benefits Tarmacked surfaces, such as roads & pavements, increasing their longevity. 😉
