Why is it warmer in cities?

    It’s warmer in cities because of the “urban heat island effect.”  Basically, heat gets trapped because there are fewer plants and trees to block solar radiation, and the buildings and pavement just absorb the heat and reflect it off one another.  Techniques like building new buildings with lighter-colored materials (remember, black attracts heat) and movements to create rooftop gardens are two ways people can reduce the urban heat island effect.
