Margaret Renkl writes about the environment of her hometown “blue dot” in red

Marguerite Renkl:

Bees, butterflies, songbirds, skinks, tree frogs, bats, we all lose them. We are watching an apocalypse unfold in our own backyards. And it’s alarming, and it’s tragic, and it’s heartbreaking.

Everything I care about is going to get worse in a heating climate. If climate change continues, we will lose the breadbasket. What does that mean? That means more hungry people. If what you’re worried about is racial justice, you’re looking at where climate change affects people the most or where pollution is most often dumped is in communities of color.

Writing a book is an exercise in solitude.
