on India’s drought, heat, and forest fires for PRI’s The World


I did a two-way (that’s a host-interview) with Marco on The World this week, talking about the water, heat, and fire situation here in India, sharing details of my visit to Uttarakhand in late April.
I also wrote an essay (text on the page is different from the audio). You can read and listen online.

This is a picture I took from the airplane at around 14:00 hours.
