Poverty & the Environment: A Grist Special Series

The environmental movement is often dismissed as the pet cause of white, well-off Americans, yet the worst consequences of environmental degradation affect the homes, workplaces, families, and bodies of the poor. In a special seven-week series, Grist focuses on the environmental realities facing the 37 million people who live below the poverty line in the United States -- one of the richest nations in history. Coverage includes multimedia virtual walking tours of poverty-stricken regions around the country, features on mining, factory farms, and unnatural disasters, and interviews with activists fighting to transform their communities. Don't miss this must-read series.
