Atmos Magazine Volume 3 Flourish/Collapse
Nature is a delicate balance of expansion and collapse, flourish and famine, growth and decay. Have human beings permanently disrupted this cycle, throwing the wheel off its axis, or is our potential demise just another extinction event that will ultimately pave way for the next species to thrive?
In “The Amazon Is a Woman,” Brazilian journalist Eliane Brum paints a clear portrait of how the violence committed against the rainforest is no different than the violence committed against the indigenous peoples who are risking their lives to defend it—the story of the forest is their story. “Rebel Yell” tells the tale of another band of warriors—the members of Extinction Rebellion and their Red Rebel Brigade— who have taken the threat of annihilation and transformed it into a movement of hope, beautifully captured by photographer Ben Toms.
Atmos Volume 03: Flourish/Collapse is currently available to purchase online and will be at independent newsstands soon. Stories from the issue can be explored on the newly relaunched atmos.earth, alongside daily in-depth digital features at the intersection of climate and culture.
