Several years ago the Science Museum of Virginia began mapping the surface heat in the city of Richmond to identify what are called urban heat islands. What they found closely mirrored the neighborhoods that had been redlined by federal banking regulators, going back to the 1930s.

Dr. Jeremy Hoffman, the Chief Scientist at the Science Museum of Virginia, joined CBS 6’s Bill Fitzgerald to discuss their findings.

Hoffman said it wasn’t necessarily a surprise that low-income areas were the hottest areas of Metro Richmond, but he said it was something of a shock that maps of the communities that were essentially shut out of the economic mainstream nearly a century ago, were identical to the maps his team was drawing.
