The village Abraha Atsbeha is surrounded by lush trees. Cattle find pastures to graze on and there is enough water to irrigate the crops. This would be an ordinary story for rural life in the northern hemisphere or other fertile regions, but for a drought stricken country like Ethiopia it sounds astonishing.

Dallas is hot. But the favorable economy brings with it a hotter issue: urban heat. In fact, among cities with a population greater than 1 million, excluding Phoenix, Dallas is heating up faster than every other city in the country.
Dallas is the second-fastest warming city in the United States, according to Texas Trees Foundation's Urban Heat Island Management Study of Dallas and its surrounding areas. The study, which was sponsored by Alliance Data, determined, "Cities do not cause heat waves - they amplify them." The ramifications of urban heat adversely affect public health, longevity of infrastructure, public opinion, and our economy. And the data from this study reveals that trees help mitigate rising temperatures, improve health of community, offset carbon emissions.
