Disaster Recovery Should Heal, Not Divide, Our Communities
Houston has barely begun to recover from Hurricane Harvey, as Irma devastates the Caribbean and heads towards Puerto Rico and Florida. Its hard to imagine all the grief, effort, and cost it will take to rebuild from one of these thousand-year storms, much less two.
But we better get used to it. Climate science tells us more superstorms are coming. We should learn how to recover from them in a smart, humane way - one that promotes economic and social justice, so people, families and communities can truly heal.
Trump and the Republicans are about to do it the other way.
