Global Warming Largely Due to Urban Heat Islands with Humidity Forcing - A Feasibility Assessment

Authors: Alec Feinberg

In this paper we provide a feasibility study to show that global warming could be largely due to Urban Heat Islands (UHI) with Humidity Forcing (HF) from Hydro-HotSpots (HHS). We denote hydro-hotspot as precipitation evaporation and bulk heating from low albedo manmade type roads and city surfaces, including cars and engine hoods. This includes both Highly Evaporating Surfaces (HES) and bulk warm waste Rain Water Management (RWM). Such Humidity Forcing (HF) root cause is then albedo forcing due to the creation of HHS. This leads to the conclusion that changing the albedo of cities and roads could be the strong solution to Global Warming (GW).
