Reports from International Business Machines Corporation Describe Recent Advances in Global Warming and Climate Change (Impacts of projected urban expansion and global warming on cooling energy demand over a semiarid region)

By a News Reporter-Staff News Editor at Science Letter -- A new study on Global Warming and Climate Change is now available. According to news reporting originating in Yorktown Heights, New York, by NewsRx journalists, research stated, "Large impacts of global warming and urbanization on near-surface air temperature increase and cooling energy demand are expected for the American Southwest region. The relative importance of these two features and their interactions are studied by means of a mesoscale model with a multilayer building energy model that allows accounting for the feedback between cooling energy consumption and air temperature for a typical summer period in Arizona."

The news reporters obtained a quote from the research from International Business Machines Corporation, "This approach allows to separate the impact of global warming from the one due to urbanization, on energy demand and air temperature. Under the highest greenhouse gas emissions scenario (RCP8.5), adverse effects on mean air temperature of global warming overwhelm those from the urbanization of new areas. In particular, the mean temperature increase for a summer period due to global warming and urban expansion in the Phoenix metropolitan area is 3.6 degrees C and in the Tucson metropolitan area, it is 3.1 degrees C. These result in an increase in the spatial density of the cooling energy demand (MW km(-2)) by 36.2 and 42.6% in the respective regions compared to present consumption."

According to the news reporters, the research concluded: "The citywide cooling energy demand (MW) on the other hand, is expected to increase up to a factor two (Phoenix) and three (Tucson), with approximate to 75% of this increase due to urban expansion, and approximate to 25% due to global warming."
