Grist launches a seven-week special series

In much of popular and political culture, the environmental movement is dismissed as the pet cause of white, well-off Americans. And yet, the population most affected by environmental problems in the U.S. is the poor. Today we kick off a seven-week series that looks at the intersection of economic and ecological survival — and how we can do better to ensure both for all our citizens. We want to hear from you on these issues, so swing by our discussion area and share your thoughts.
