Super proud to announce that Come Heat and High Water, chapter 5 of Disposable City, is out now in The Believer. If you want a taste of what I’m currently cooking up, head over to their website. Come Heat and High Water is all about how the current doctrine of climate adaptation is failing Miami’s most vulnerable.
“You might not think, at first, that my constantly getting the crap kicked out of me has anything to do with climate change or sea-level rise or the death of my city at the hands of an angry, swollen ocean. Yet when state and federal governments ignore the greater structural issues at play, the prevailing doctrine of adaptation starts to closely resemble the national discourse of “toughen up” and “pull yourself up by your bootstraps,” and it’s worth taking a moment to check in with the folks who don’t have any boots.”
