Extreme heat is killing people in Arizona's mobile homes
Experts say residents of older, substandard mobile homes are at higher risk of death in summer’s blazing temperatures. "We are beginning to see this to be a real health concern, certainly a moral one," said Margaret Wilder, an associate professor in the School of Geography, Development and the Environment at the University of Arizona. "It should be of concern to any policymaker." "We are all exposed to global warming; the temperatures outside are up for all of us, but not all of us are equally vulnerable," said Mark Kear, an assistant professor in the School of Geography, Development and the Environment at the University of Arizona.
