The Urban Heat Island (UHI) effect is a real phenomenon, accepted by the majority of scientists. What’s argued is its impact on the climate.
Research in China indicates that the UHI effect contributed to much of the observed “climate warming” over the past few decades, with the Sun responsible for the rest–it having just gone through its strongest Solar Maximum of the past 1000 years.
One recent paper, entitled “The Effect of Urban Heat Island on Climate Warming in the Yangtze River Delta Urban Agglomeration in China“, presents evidence of a significant UHI effect on climate warming based on an analysis of the impacts of the urbanization rate, urban population, and land use changes on the warming rate of the daily average, minimal (nighttime) and maximal (daytime) air temperature in the YRDUA using 41 meteorological stations observation data.
The paper concludes that the average warming rates of huge cities and megalopolises are significantly higher than those of medium-sized cities and small cities, indicating that the UHI has a significant effect on climate warming.
“Significantly positive correlations are found between the urbanization rate, population, built-up area and warming rate of average air temperature,” reads a passage from the paper’s abstract — linked here.
“Urbanization has a measurable effect on the observed climate warming in the YRD aggravating the global climate warming,” concludes the researchers.
Another Chinese paper, “The footprint of urban heat island effect in China“, shows that from 2003 to 2012, the UHI effect decayed exponentially toward rural areas for the majority of the 32 Chinese cities.
“We found an obvious urban/rural temperature “cliff”, and estimated that the footprint of UHI effect (FP, including urban area) was 2.3 and 3.9 times of urban size for the day and night, respectively. We further revealed that ignoring the FP may underestimate the UHI intensity in most cases and even alter the direction of UHI estimates for few cities. Our results provide new insights to the characteristics of UHI effect and emphasize the necessity of considering city and time-specific FP when assessing the urbanization effects on local climate.”
For further evidence of the UHI effect and examples of it in other parts of the world, including in the U.S., read Section 3 of Dr Roy Spencer’s article below:
Don’t fall for politicized, warm-mongering agendas.
While us humans may be able to play temporary games with a localized environment, it’s the Sun that holds all the global climate cards — the coming dimming of its switch will prove lights-out for the global warming ruse.
Even NASA agrees, if you read between the lines, with their forecast for this upcoming solar cycle (25) seeing it as “the weakest of the past 200 years,” with the agency correlating previous solar shutdowns to prolonged periods of global cooling here.
