Shade Is Becoming a Hot Commodity in L.A.

"Last October. The mayor of L. A.. Eric Garcetti gave a speech about one of the biggest biggest issues facing his city is just way too hot and we know that climate change is not an abstract crisis. This is the fight of our lives. Eric Karsh City the in south Los Angeles today rolling out key elements of his cool streets. Program this is the first of five neighborhoods across the city where we're rolling out new features. That'll help us. Lower our temperatures apertures the city. Trying lots of things to cool down temperatures like painting sidewalks white but the easiest way to solve this problem is shade it just creating shade lots of neighborhoods in La. Don't have tree coverage or high-rise buildings and because of city bylaws it's really difficult to build features like shade sales or canopies journalists. Sam Block has spent a lot of time looking into shade so I sat down to talk with him about why is actually a matter of life or death eh for people living in release on places so you used to live in Los Angeles and what did you notice about Los Angeles when you start walking around the city. What did I notice? I notice that there was no one around. I noticed that the people who were around what have to position themselves in such a way to protect themselves cells from the sunlight. What do you mean? I noticed people waiting for the buses behind telephone poles. I notice people waiting behind the people waiting behind telephone poles because there's only that small sliver of shade that people were protected from the sunlight. Why is she two important? Los Angeles like most every city in the world is heating up. There are some scientists who I speak to who have found that in hot dry air it environments like Los Angeles but also Phoenix. That shade is the most important factor when it it comes to human comfort more than temperature more than humidity more than wind speed. And there's a close relationship between human thermal comfort and mortality and and illness and heatstroke. If you don't have shade if you're not protected from the sun you can. Oh you can become dizzy. You can become disoriented. You can become confused fused authentic to hydrated if you are obese or elderly or pregnant that can tap into more dangerous things like heart attack organ failure Into what is the magnitude of the problem in La. There are a few different ways of thinking about it okay. We can talk about shade in terms of tree canopy which is a very serious problem? mm-hmm Los Angeles has terribly unequal tree canopy by tree canopy. I just mean coverage Lindsey your daughter space looking down in La. You'll see parts of the city that are covered in green. And you'll see parts of the city that are not. They're baking an asphalt and those two. At follow lines of wealth. It's a problem with tree canopy. It's a problem. In terms of the built urban form Los Angeles notoriously anti density Los Angeles has image of itself is not being New York City in fact being the Anti New York City so oh sunlight and open space is a part of the culture. That's not necessarily problem but it becomes a problem when you can't escape it right so there are no tall. Buildings provide some measure of shade. I wouldn't go as far as say. There are no tall bill. However in futile there are a few tall buildings space pretty far apart correct? They're located in certain height districts. Downtown being one of them and even some areas that city planners have designated be taller neighborhoods. Even today there's still fought and contested by neighborhood favorite activists. So I've seen the pictures I get a sense that Los Angeles used to be greener like there was a lot of shade. So tell me how the city was designed and how how it developed into this so time was Los Angeles was a prairie if you look at photos of La from a hundred years ago it's all grasslands and when it was settled. Oh by the Spanish downtown which was the original settlement was laid out according to the law of the indies. This city would roughly conform to a forty five degree angle. So you could have some light in the winter and shade aiden shadow in the summer. So explain the law of the indies. What does this mean? The laws of the indies means. Build your cities at forty five degrees basically really completely unlike the way we think of most American cities which have this sort of North South East West original grid. So you have these settlements that are laid out in such a way as to be able to create shadow data when you need it and also to bestow sunlight also when you need it. Spanish architecture a very strong sense of natural comforts. You'll see a lot of these kinds of missions and adobe toby that have these internal courtyards that are shaded You'll have covered. Walkways PA- CEOS. And even today you'll see a lot of this and like Spanish revival architecture or you know outdoor malls that have goofy Spanish names Los Angeles was also in a way sort of a dusty old West town. So you think about these covered boardwalks. You think about large judge Canvas awnings that are cooling people who are living outside and also cooling indoors. which at the time didn't have air conditioning? And another way that Los Angeles tried to stay cool was through rich. Beautiful kind of flamboyant not just tree canopy but in a syncretic overwhelming variety of exotic flora and fauna So during during this period there was a recognition of the environment and how to be comfortable inside of it. And when did that go wrong. You put it that way. Things started to go wrong after cheap. Electricity came down to Los Angeles with the completion of what's now called the Hoover Dam. See Start to see the city rebuild itself and the new development becomes like we see today you have controlled air conditioning. The of the automobile which comes to dominate the city in the thirties and the forty s and with the automobile. You have a whole new way of seeing the city. The names of the streets are translated into magic fabulous. Stacks of freeways tremendous tons of the city started to think about how to market itself and how to make itself seem more attractive to outsiders. And this is where you get palm trees palm trees one. SAS said were about as useful for shade as a telephone pole uh-huh. She hated them but the city was enamored of an. Interestingly you have different philanthropists and celebrities starting to think about trees as being a public good the palm tree in particular being one. That doesn't just message. La Is kind of Semitropical Paradise. But also as Mary Pickford said it's very good for window shopping from the CD your car because the tree trunks aren't that robust so if you're driving down some boulevard you can see all the great stuff because the palm tree is narrow so Los Angeles was also rezoned rezoned in the nineteen thirties to become a single family city Los Angeles in order to sort of not pacify not suck up to sort of remake itself in the image of the the Fha they decided that all new single family homes had to come in the front and aside yard start to create a lot of space around them. Los Angeles really starts to hate the idea of density. And so when you have this type of sprawling not very dense city How is this? Shade distributed unevenly shade is distributed to people who can afford it. If you go into these neighborhoods that were laid out to be wealthy residential enclaves you very wide sidewalks sidewalks and the the Strip of grass where you can tree plant which is called the parkway becomes four or five maybe even ten feet wide when you have these wider parkway's you have a greater space to the plant bigger thicker leafier tree so the parkway is the area between the sidewalk and the road correct can be pretty wide and therefore have treats them correct in other neighborhoods. That have been red line that were designed as sort of worker housing. That were meant to sort of Jammed together you don't have these kinds of wide residential sidewalks instead instead. What you have are very narrow sidewalks because these neighborhoods are designed to facilitate automobile passage? So if you have a narrow sidewalk you don't really have the space to plant a thick leafy
