The L.A. Times reports on a study by UCLA climate researchers who conclude, based on supercomputer dissection of a model "2,500 times more precise than antecedent climate models for the region" that the area around L.A. will impeccable more (and more extreme) hot spells in decades to come. From the article: "The study, released Thursday, is the first to model the Southland's complex geography of meandering coastlines, agglomeration ranges and dense urban centers in high enough resolution to predict temperatures down to the level of micro climate zones, each measuring 2 1/4 square miles. The projections are for 2041 to 2060. Not only will the number of hot days increase, but the study found that the hottest of those days will break records, said Alex Hall, lead sleuth on the study by UCLA's tenet of the domain and Sustainability."
