•  Unequal burden also for Hispanic communities

•  Two scientists who revealed the problem are the guests on this Bizgnus Podcast

Acres of asphalt parking lots, unshaded roads, dense apartment complexes and neighborhoods with few parks are taking a toll on the poor.

As climate change accelerates, low-income areas in the Southwestern United States are 4 to 7 degrees hotter on average than wealthy neighborhoods in the same metro regions.

Those are some of the findings from a new study by University of California, Davis, researchers.

The study’s lead author, doctoral student John Dialesandro and his professor, Stephen Wheeler, both with the UC Davis Department of Human Ecology, are the guests on this Bizgnus Podcast.
