It's gonna be a hot one...forever.


Earth, Wind, & Fire

The world is falling apart, folks, but here’s a hint: it’s not the heat—it’s the humanity. Our August issue, Earth, Wind & Fire, features stories about the relationship between humans and the planet we live on, with visits to a toxic steel mill town in western Pennsylvania, the scorched earth of Death Valley National Park, icebergs in the North Atlantic, and America's most popular poison pit.
