    Darwin Hot Town Cool CityThere’s no doubt about it, Darwin is one of Australia’s hottest cities. And by hot, we mean heat-affected, as well as a cool spot for tourists moving around and exploring the great outdoors. Hot cities mean hot assets, which means more energy is required to cool them, which means more carbon emissions, which means a worsening impact on our world. We need to cool down.
