Satellites Show Urban Effects on Climate
It's now commonly admitted that our appetite for fossil fuels is having a strong influence on the Earth's climate -- and our future. But what about the concentration of humans in urban areas? Today, 50% of the world's population is living on about one percent of Earth's surface. Can this extreme concentration lead to other effects on our climate and weather?

In 'Satellites and the city,' NASA says that it can help to provide an answer.
