I'm giving a talk about Hurricane Florence, and other hurricanes, tomorrow in Southhampton. If you're in the area and would like to attend—other awesome environmental speakers will be there, too—tickets are available here:

Trump has been loosening several regulations on coal ash storage for the last year, FYI

It’s been well-documented that hurricanes hit poor, minority communities the hardest. They are more vulnerable to the risks of natural disasters, and struggle most to recover.

Yes, the water is *still* rising in North Carolina, nearly a week after Florence's landfall.

Hurricanes don't really stop when the winds die down. There's often (and increasingly) a "Phase B" where tons of damage is done. For Florence, Phase B will likely be worse than Phase A.

Sewage spill totals have not been reported in North Carolina post-Florence yet but, for context, this is what happened in Florida after Hurricane Irma last year. I repeat: DON'T SWIM IN FLOODWATER YOU DISGUSTING FOOLS

oh the irony that this was a stressful piece to get out because I was worried about juggling coverage of Hurricane Florence. My latest, I speak with psychologists about climate anxiety:
