I grew up in and around Vienna. My parents hail from the 22nd district which also happens to be the largest by any measure. When I was a kid and we drove from the city center to my maternal grandparent’s house, we drove through a lot of fields and greenery. Even more, if we drove on to my paternal grandparents. One did not really feel the big city anymore when one was in the far reaches of the 22nd. That was when I was a kid. No open spaces anymore where once used to be fields and green. has the weather gotten warmer with all those black surfaces? You bet.
Although most landscape changes are caused by humans, the intent here is show how landscape changes largely account for the land's temperature trends that have been incorrectly blamed on rising CO2.
