On 23 February 2024 The Guardian reported: A comprehensive review of research into the heat-mitigating effects of green spaces during heatwaves has found that botanical gardens are the most effective. It is a finding the team at the Global Centre for Clean Air Research (GCCAR) hope will inform policymakers planning cities for a warming world. ...This particular research found that sites such as the Chelsea Physic Garden and Royal Botanic Gardens at Kew in London, or the Gardens by the Bay in Singapore, reduced air temperatures during heatwaves in the city streets around them by an average 5C. Global Good News service views this news as a sign of rising positivity in the field of science, documenting the growth of life-supporting, evolutionary trends.

Urban parks and wetlands have a similar effect, and even green walls, street trees, and playgrounds were found to significantly mitigate temperatures. 'We have known for some time that green spaces and water can cool cities down,' said the GCCAR director, Prof Prashant Kumar, the study's lead author.

'However, this study provides us the most comprehensive picture yet. What's more, we can explain why. From trees providing shade, to evaporating water cooling the air.'
