Blast from the past

My World's on Fire
Blast from the past
By Colleen Hagerty • Issue #52 • View online
Thanks for reading my World’s on Fire, a weekly newsletter about disasters from journalist Colleen Hagerty. If you found this dispatch interesting, I hope you’ll subscribe!

You might notice that today’s newsletter jumps from issue #7 to #52 – that’s not a mistake! All of the My World’s On Fire archives are finally in one place, and to celebrate, I decided to do a special links post. Along with my regular list of stories I’m following, I mixed in some old editions of this newsletter that still relate to today’s news. I’m so grateful for the support from you all that’s kept MWOF going 50-plus issues strong – with many more to come!
I’d love to hear your thoughts on the links below and what you’re reading/listening to/watching. You can always reply to this email to reach me or find me on Twitter.
Let’s get to the links:

As always...
thank you for reading and subscribing to My World’s on Fire. You can support this newsletter and get access to exclusive content by signing up for my Patreon (those subscribers got a new post yesterday)!
It also means the world to me when you share it on social media. Normally, this is where I include a nice tweet from one of you, but my mentions got a bit messy this week after a much-shared heat wave tweet, so I’ll be back to that next week when they’re hopefully a bit easier to wade through! Instead, here’s a gratuitous video of my pup finding one way to keep cool:

Now, here’s a little something for reading to the end.
