FROM THIS EPISODE

As the earth heats up, cities made hot by concrete are getting even hotter. The City of Los Angeles has declared war on rising temperatures. But the city still has a long ways to go.

This story was made possible with support from the Center for Health Journalism at the University of Southern California.
