Fried sun of the big city

Global warming has disproportionately changed the number of temperature spikes per year. Average summer temperatures have changed by only 1 degree in the past few decades, but the number of hot days have tripled. Instead of the previous 6-8 days, now the temperature goes above 30°C 20 days a year. Inevitably, energy spending on ventilation and air conditioning increases.

Marriette Deckard I concur with Tim Suetens. There have been high level heat waves over the last ten years from Melbourne to Mumbai. The hottest years since records have been kept have all occurred within the last 10 years. The IPCC which produces data that is conservative at best has stated that these events will increase in the decades ahead and will affect cities across the world. 14 Mar 2019
Tim Suetens Already happening. The 2018 European heat wave is just the beginning. 06 Feb 2019
