Extreme heat is deadly. It's worse when combined air pollution. In some Philly communities people are exposed too both far more than in other communities. This is particularly true for those communities with little to no tree cover. We will explore this urgent issue with Sophie Sakar from the Office of Sustainability. Also on this show, we will find out from Peter Winslow what is up in the fast changing situation with the PES oil refinery.
