#261: Climate Migration Will Reshape America
By Mark Isero • Issue #269 • View online
Happy Thursday, loyal readers, and thank you for opening today’s newsletter. I appreciate your readership, whether you’re new to The Highlighter (hi Dorothy!) or not-so-new (hi Heidi!). This week’s lead article, which focuses on the climate crisis in our country, describes in detail how warming will result not only in more (un)natural disasters but also in mass migration of Americans.
If gloomy science isn’t for you, I recommend today’s other pieces, including a powerful personal essay by Jaquira Díaz, an illuminating look at the challenges of voting-by-mail, and a worrisome investigation into the surveillance of Black Lives Matter activists. Please enjoy. I hope that you’ll find at least one article that piques your curiosity, and have a great week!
+ Article Club is in its ninth month (already?), and I invite you to check it out if you want to read more deeply and connect with fellow loyal readers. This month, we’re discussing “I Went to Disney World” (#254) by Graeme Wood. Find out more information here.
+ Thank you for all the kind emails about last week’s issue. If you like the newsletter and want to leave a kind word, please do!
