Blocking Urban Heat will Slow Global Warming says Online Think Tank
Everyone is now saying the Global Warming is Official? It is not really, but if that is the way human politics in the World want to play it then who is an Online Think Tank to deny the human civilizations from their typical fear tactics? Now then, although it is hard to convince a scientist that mankind is 100% at fault, most all agree that human pollution is at least a contributing factor to ambient atmospheric temperature increases.
So, the Online Think Tank has been asked to come up with a solution. And we have listed about 10 smart things that should be done; from planting 6-8 Billion Trees to having a talk with China to advancing Clean Coal Technologies to market on an upgraded timeline. Of course all this obvious ideas are not revolutionary and are pretty much obvious. Therefore we put on our thinking caps to come up with more.
About five years ago a member of our group who is not the Online Think Tank coordinator stated that we needed to worry about Urban Heat and the affect that all these paved roads and concrete was having on the temperatures. Sometimes 5-8 degrees hotter over large metro areas like Los Angeles, Houston, Dallas, Phoenix, Orlando and New York. The answer is to coat all the roads, parking lots, school black top and tops of buildings with a non-reflective absorbing coating.
We looked into Adsil.com for this. It is really neat stuff, I mean this stuff is cool. We used it for boat hulls, but if you could use it for the tops of buildings you might be able to carefully absorb or collect sunlight, maybe reflect it to capture it without heating up the surrounding ambient air temp.
Today we are the Online Think Tank, but tomorrow we will be the Urban Heat Buster!
