Abstract
Over the past decade research on urban thermal inequity has grown, with a focus on denser built environments. In this letter we examine thermal inequity associated with climate change impacts and changes to urban form in a comparatively socio-economically disadvantaged Australian suburb. Local urban densification policies designed to counteract sprawl have reduced block sizes, increased height limits, and diminished urban tree canopy cover (UTC). Little attention has been given to the combined effects of lower UTC and increased heat on disadvantaged residents. Such impacts include rising energy expenditure to maintain thermal comfort (i.e. cooling dwellings). We used a survey of residents (n = 230) to determine their perceptions of climate change impacts; household energy costs; household thermal comfort practices; and dispositions towards using green infrastructure to combat heat. Results suggest that while comparatively disadvantaged residents spend more on energy as a proportion of their income, they appear to have reduced capacity to adapt to climate change at the household scale. We found most residents favoured more urban greening and supported tree planting in local parks and streets. Findings have implications for policy responses aimed at achieving urban climate justice.

located in Gold Coast city in southeast Queensland Australia yeah go local city has been identified by the IPCC as a hotspot for climate change impacts so as we move further into the 21st century local city is going to see an experience much more severe climate change impacts a
study had 2 purposes because of this was to look at how marginalized and disadvantaged residents like the way disproportionately to increase energy costs would like to salute pooling their houses and the 2nd aspect was to undertake the study in a rigorous way much environment justice research has been criticized for not controlling for a wide variety of variables such as undertaking research at a postcard level rather than a specific neighborhood level and not thinking about people's attitudes and values and how a lot of
the
war study asked the following research questions are marginalized and disadvantaged residents aware of climate change are marginalized and disadvantaged residents concerned about climate change and you marginalized and disadvantaged residents understand the potential for green infrastructure as a means of adapting to climate change and this study will
