Late afternoon reading Thursday, 02 August 2018 15:30:51 CDT David-Braverman Chicago, General, Geography, Politics, Weather (0) When I get home tonight, I'll need to read these (and so should you): The New York Times magazine has a long article on how we almost fixed climate change between 1979 and 1989; New Republic has a critique. A house in the Irving Park community in northwest Chicago might have been a stop on the Underground Railroad. A non-profit organization in Chicago is trying to fix our polluted canals, starting with a stretch by the flagship Whole Foods Market on Kingsbury. National Geographic has the story of Mauro Morandi, who has lived alone on an island in the Mediterranean for 28 years. The Atlantic describes how we're making life miserable for right whales off the coast of North America. And now, I'm off to the Art Institute.
