Write a paragraph Climate change and cities Fitzpatrick and Dunn (2019) developed a climate-analog mapping approach to estimate what kinds of new climates cities will experience under different scenarios of climate change. Check out the article (it is posted on Quercus): Fitzpatrick, M.C., Dunn, R.R. Contemporary climatic analogs for 540 North American urban areas in the late 21st century. Nature Communications 10, 614 (2019). Bonus question: Pick a US or Canadian city you are familiar with, or interested in (e.g., Toronto, or it can be somewhere else). Click on it or enter the city name in the web app below:/ Play around with the options. Write a paragraph describing what the best analogue city is for your selected city, under current high emissions and under the reduced emission scenario. What kinds of changes would be expected in your city under the new climate? Do you think this is an effective tool to highlight the impacts of climate change?
