The figure shows increases in population-weighted cooling degree days, which result in increased air conditioning use, and decreases in population-weighted heating degree days, meaning less energy required to heat buildings in winter, compared to the average for 1970-2000. Cooling degree days are defined as the number of degrees that a day’s average temperature is above 65°F, while heating degree days are the number of degrees a day’s average temperature is below 65°F. As shown, the increase in cooling needs is greater than the decrease in heating needs (Data from NOAA NCDC 2012)."^^xsd:string; dcterms:rights [ rdf:value "Free to use with credit to the original figure source."^^xsd:string; ]; gcis:hasImage <https://data.globalchange.gov/image/e7bdf318-1e1f-4c85-821f-907a55ff0ede>; gcis:isFigureOf <https://data.globalchange.gov/report/nca3/chapter/energy-supply-and-use>; gcis:isFigureOf <https://data.globalchange.gov/report/nca3>; ## Geographical extent of the figure content ## Temporal extent of the figure content a gcis:Figure, doco:Figure . <https://data.globalchange.gov/report/nca3/chapter/energy-supply-and-use/figure/increase-in-cooling-demand-and-decrease-in-heating-demand> cito:cites <https://data.globalchange.gov/webpage/09471122-c68a-4984-984f-7d2fad528359>; biro:references <https://data.globalchange.gov/reference/da636886-4bc3-400b-8ce8-dc51f16ac54f>. <https://data.globalchange.gov/report/nca3/chapter/energy-supply-and-use/figure/increase-in-cooling-demand-and-decrease-in-heating-demand> prov:wasDerivedFrom <https://data.globalchange.gov/report/aeo2008>.
