Europe heating up, cities need to be redesigned

Post by HBS Guy »

This impacts home design but more a city thing.

As Squire stated, areas in higher latitudes will face very long very hot summer days. The heatwave in Europe last year brought that point home.

Urban design, public transport, power grids etc all need to change to allow European cities to cope with the increased heat they will face in summer. We are not immune—new dwellings are not designed to cope with increasing summer heat and nit designed to be low energy dwellings etc. ... d-to-adapt
