Sustainability solutions for a city that creates integrated community value. Integrated projects are mutually beneficial sustainable solutions created in and with the community to provide dynamic social, economic, and environmental holistic improvements in the local community. Outcome driven for measurable results project development that provides general community assessment of areas in the community for initial low cost projects implementation, with collaboration development to initiate positive change in quality of life in a community.

  9. 9. HeatDescription of a “vicious spiral” of warmingin Southwest cities that could lead 7 toserious increases in illness and death dueto heat stress. This spiral shows how more8 heat waves can lead to increasedoccurrence of electric power brownoutsand outages, 9 which in turn reduce theavailability of life-saving air conditioning.Shown in green 10 above are variousresponse options, such as increased use ofmore efficient architectural 11 practices,more reflective building and pavingmaterials, low water-use landscaping for 12shading, alternative energy, smart electricgrid technologies, and improved public 13awareness, which can reduce vulnerability.http://ncadac.globalchange.gov/download/NCAJan11-2013-publicreviewdraft-chap20-southwest.pdf

  11. 11. Urban Heat Islands- Hot CitiesAn urban heat island (UHI) is a metropolitan areathat is significantly warmer than its surroundingrural areas due to human activities. Thetemperature difference usually is larger at nightthan during the day, and is most apparent whenwinds are weak. Seasonally, UHI is seen duringboth summer and winter. The main cause of theurban heat island is modification of the landsurface by urban development which usesmaterials which effectively retain heat. Waste heatgenerated by energy usage is a secondarycontributor. As a population center grows, it tendsto expand its area, and increase in its averagetemperature. The less-used term heat islandrefers to any area, populated or not, which isconsistently hotter than the surrounding area.http://ncadac.globalchange.gov/download/NCAJan11-2013-publicreviewdraft-chap28-adaptation.pdfhttp://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Heat_islands
  12. 12. Reflective surfaces (geoengineering)If all urban, flat roofs in warm climates were whitened, the resulting 10% increase inglobal reflectivity would offset the warming effect of 24 Gigatonnes of greenhousegas emissions, or equivalent to taking 300 million cars off the road for 20 years. Thisis based on the fact that a 1,000-square-foot (93 m2) white roof will offset 10 tons ofcarbon dioxide over its 20 year lifetime.Reflective surfaces are artificially-altered surfaces that candeliver high solar reflectance (the ability to reflect thevisible, infrared and ultraviolet wavelengths of the sun,reducing heat transfer to the surface) and high thermalemittance (the ability to radiate absorbed, or non-reflectedsolar energy Reflective surfaces are a form ofgeoengineering.http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Roof-albedo.gifhttp://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cool_roof
