Description

In August, Abrahm Lustgarten, who reports on climate, watched fires burn just 12 miles from his home in Marin County, Calif.

For two years, he had been studying the impact of the changing climate on global migration and recently turned some of his attention to the domestic situation.

Suddenly, with fires raging so close to home, he had to ask himself the question he had been asking other people: Was it time to move?

This week on The Sunday Read, Abrahm explores a nation on the cusp of transformation.

This story was written by Abrahm Lustgarten and recorded by Audm. To hear more audio stories from publishers like The New York Times, download Audm for iPhone or Android.

If we’re going to, as a country, start to understand the conflicts happening around the question of defunding the police, it would help if our premiere news organization allowed for historical and political analysis of the purpose of the police in this country. It is irresponsible to hook this narrative on uninformed differences of opinion (“who am I gonna call?”) and not offer context that could help people find common ground and deeper understanding of why we are where we are. If you listened to this, consider listening to the Ruth Wilson Gilmore episode of The Dig podcast.
