By Michele Bigley “Tell your travelers that whenever Hawaiians run out of the ocean, they should run, fast, into the water,” my schoolmate wrote by email. “Tiger sharks love white meat.” It was 2006. I had just landed my first contract to write a guidebook to Kauaʻi. For several months, my notebook and I cruised down narrow waterfall-lined roads seeking out hidden hideaways and hole-in-the-wall eateries. The island resembles the tropics of your imagination: greenery hangs from road signs, plumeria scents the thick air, and rainbows arc over the clear blue Pacific.  That’s when my grad ..read more

Climate Solutions  //   ISSUE  #89   //   HOTHOUSE 2.0 Last month, I backpacked Isle Royale, a remote wilderness island in Lake Superior, with my 68-year-old mom.
