Issue No. 14 | Earth, Wind & Fire
Habitat for Humanity
Wildfires are raging, icebergs are shrinking, and the Great Pacific Garbage Patch is bigger than Texas. Our August issue, Earth, Wind & Fire, features stories about the ways in which humans have both transformed and been transformed by the environment. First up is Rosie Haber’s Braddock, PA, a documentary series about a Rust Belt town poisoned for decades by smoke and steel, and the residents determined to reclaim and heal their community. Other pieces include a photo essay about living without running water in Mexico City, a tour of the inferno that is Death Valley National Park, and a visit to the 1,700-foot deep Montana cesspool known as the Berkeley Pit. The world is falling apart, folks, but here’s a hint: it’s not the heat—it’s the humanity.
