    Thanks for finding that. Unfortunately that link won't work. This one does:

    http://earthobservatory.nasa.gov:8000/Newsroom/NasaNews/2004/2004072917348.html

    Note:
    Those numbers are not unfamiliar to me, as I was also studying the case. But they beat me to it.

    So, how about the correlation between exponential growth of population, exponential growth of cities and exponential growth of Urban Heat Island effect on the Global temperature?
