Because of the climate crisis summers are getting hotter and hotter, and deadlier. In this Planet Philadelphia radio show, aired 6/21/19 on 92.9 FM in Philadelphia and on gtownradio.com, we addressed heat islands, an effect that make cities hotter than surrounding areas. This is particularly so for some sections of Philadelphia.
We here at Planet Philadelphia will be talking about ways to help people stay cooler and healthier in hot weather in this show and in additional reporting as the summer heats up. The show live streams 4:00-5:00 p.m. the first and third Friday of every month on gtownradio.com and is broadcast on Germantown Community Radio at 92.9FM WGGT-LP, available around NW Philadelphia.
