Climate change is raising temperatures, but the effect could be worse in the world's cities, according to researchers. They say the urban heat island effect - or the fact that cities are hotter thanks to human activity - combined with climate change could increase temperatures in urban areas by around 14.4 degrees Fahrenheit, or eight degrees Celsius, by the end of the 21st century.
