Environmental writers tell great stories about life across our fast-changing globe.
We’re seeing a remarkable series of stories about climate change and other manmade or partly manmade threats—some even complete with hints of solutions. Here’s a fairly random baker’s dozen from this striking crop (hmm, only two of these pieces come from for-profit publications).
- Insect populations are declining around the world. How worried should we be?
- How a Mayan town restored its sacred cloud forest and water supply
- Navigating a sea of superlatives in pursuit of the Asian carp
- The human factor in clean water
- Dry, the beloved country
- The geoduck diver
- Spawning an intervention
- The rising tide of climate injustice
- Invasive reptiles are taking over Florida—and devouring its birds along the way
- The cavernous world under the woods
- In the fate of the delta smelt, warnings of conservation gone wrong
- Borderland rebellion
- The riddle of the roaming plastics
