Mudd Stain

“For years, wealthy visitors to Baker’s Bay could ignore the precarious living conditions in the Mudd. But now, in the aftermath of Hurricane Dorian, that’s no longer possible. The shantytown has been destroyed. Many people were killed; the rest are homeless. The devastating human toll has exposed an economic dependency — there’s no one to repair the mansions.” WaPo: When Hurricane Dorian blew through the Bahamas, it exposed one of the world’s great faultlines of inequality. (This serves as a decent metaphor for how climate change is likely to impact places all over the world.)
