There have been more deaths in Wisconsin since 1982 from extreme heat than any other natural disaster combined. Temperatures are only expected to go up and the number of days in southern Wisconsin over 90 degrees is projected to double by 2055. The inner city can be one of the areas hardest hit by heat. Elijah Furquan uses a unique art form to express what climate change will mean in Milwaukee.
