Prague mulling ways to fight effects of global warming

22-04-2017

The average temperature in Prague has grown by approximately ten degrees Celsius since 1960 the news site Lidovky.cz reports, citing statistics published by the Prague City Council. The council is debating a long-term strategy to fight climate change in the Czech capital. The measures to be adopted include more greenery, more community gardens and garden colonies in the suburbs as well as the use of materials that would deflect heat rather than absorbing it. There are concerns that the rise in average temperatures is having a negative effect on the health of seniors and chronically ill people and causing more accidents on the roads.
