Is Urban Sprawl Keeping Cities Cool?

New research indicates that cities in Europe with urban sprawl aren't as susceptible to global warming.

"Figures released yesterday show that 13 out of 16 European cities studied have seen their average temperatures rise by at least one degree over the last 35 years. And although there has been a rise in Dublin's temperatures of 0.7 degrees since 1970, it have not been as extensive as those suffered by capitals like Madrid or London."
