Actually, the climate scientists DO account for "heat islands" due to what you're talking about. The problem is (as Michael Crichton pointed out quite well in State of Fear) is that they're not sure exactly how much of an adjustment to make in their data. Putting adjusted data into climate models is skewing the data from the start. Are they adjusting the temps in heat islands down too much, not enough, or just right? They don't know.
