Last summer, Grist ran a limited series on wildfires called the Burning Issue. This year, they are turning their attention to a different but intersecting piece of the climate change puzzle: drought in the Western US. Their first issue in early August discussed the intersections between climate change and megadrought – namely a phenomenon called “sky thirstiness” that exacerbates drought. More recently, Parched has delved into the Inflation Reduction Act’s funding for drought relief and the federal government’s Colorado River water cuts. Use this link to subscribe.
