This week ...

... I’m drawing your attention to our latest stories for our “Climate Driven” series in Franklin County. If you don’t know already, we’re doing what a Deep Dive on all sixteen counties to see what the effects of climate change are across the state. This “Climate Driven” drop touches on snowmobiling in a changing snowscape, birding and which species are being pushed out, and the ones coming in to replace them, and what farming looks like with less water.

We’re also touching base on Moxie supply issues that have been hitting the state, to the point that it grabbed Scott Simon at NPR! My final highlight is a story out of Boston that looks at a pair of anti-racist doctors at Brigham and Women’s Hospital, that are being targeted by group of white supremacists, and continuing their work to eliminate institutional biases in the health system.

 

With Moxie,
