It's Thursday. I hope you and your family made it through the hurricane OK, and I hope the information I shared helped in some way.

yes, to all of that. WaPo has been doing a great job circulating all the headlines on covid in a sidebar/livestream feature all year long. it's enough to get some more real estate to rotate all the other major non-covid stories through the top of the home page

Having a good editor is *critically vital* to good journalism. If you're a freelance editor and want to help tell transformative stories about the climate emergency, I'd love to work with you on The Phoenix. DMs open.

I think that's... all we could ever strive to do. Telling the story that there are multiple ways to tell anyone's story.

Yesterday, Hurricane Zeta became the strongest hurricane in recorded history (since 1851) to have its eye directly pass over New Orleans. My full storm wrap-up + links for how you can help folks working for climate justice across Louisiana and the South.

Climate change is wreaking havoc on both seasonal patterns and the cultures and histories that are connected to them. And as the seasons shift, the changes ripple through people’s lives and livelihoods. via

On a rapidly heating planet, there are no more presidential cycles to waste. We're entirely out of margin.

Stunning 20 hour time lapse of accelerating towards landfall along the central Gulf coast -- steered by an impressively deep cut-off low advancing east across Texas and Oklahoma (and bringing wintery weather along with it). low-level water vapor imagery.

Here's a comparison of *unofficial* peak water inundation heights (MHHW) for Louisiana's three hurricane landfalls: This only includes official NOAA gauge stations. Post-event surveys later confirm the actual peak heights; which can be multiple feet higher.

The combination of Hurricane Zeta's quick motion inland (into the Carolinas already!) and a historic ice storm in TX and OK means power outages are surging across the south today. Almost a million households w/o power in Georgia alone!

Looks like Hurricane Zeta was the strongest hurricane in recorded history (since 1851) to have its eye directly pass over New Orleans. Zeta's maximum sustained winds: 110mph, just 1mph from Cat 3
