White Roofs and Global Warming...!

Haleemah Zia

White roofs have always been preferred by all. It reflects sunlight and keeps the house cool..scientifically proven!! But recent studies coming into limelight suggest a totally different aspect..much of a concern!

The Gist of it is that, while white roofs give a cooling effect, they too create a significant amount of temperature difference between earth and the air. This temperature difference is the actual cause of cloud formation in nature.The result is...less clouds..more heat penetration..more the global warming..

For curious readers, stats and technical details at National Geographic Website would be of interest.
