Throughout northern Arizona, cities like Flagstaff, Page and Winslow have experienced record breaking temperatures not seen in previous years. The summer of 2020 has now been recorded as
being the hottest summer in Flagstaff’s history and local researchers share their insights on the
causes and effects of these rising temperatures. NAZ Today’s Christian Ayala talked with NAU professors George Koch and Ellie Broadman about the issue.
Both expressed their concern on how these high temperatures can have negative consequences on residents throughout the city as well as the environment. From dealing with low water supplies, people with chronic health conditions, and worsening wildfires, Koch and Broadman urge the City of Flagstaff to make more sustainable choices for a better future.
