Personally, I don't buy into the global warming thing.
But, on a hot sunny day it would be hotter in downtown anytown and a little cooler near a lake or in the country. Concrete reatins eat better than trees and lakes--no mystery there.
Have you ever thought that maybe the atmosphere may be in better shape now than it was in ages past???????????

Good comments all, maybe not as great of an idea as I thought.

The thinking behind the theory of global worming is that greenhouse gases, such as those found in the emissions of combustion (fire or burning of petroleum products), such as CO2 or CO, get trapped in the upper atmosphere, trapping heat in the earth. Micro-climates such as cities would not have a more noticeable effect. The theory has credible scientific evidence to back it up, whether you want to beleive it or not.
