From June 2022 to June 2023, the LRB has been collaborating with the World Weather Network, a constellation of weather stations set up by 28 arts organisations in oceans, deserts, mountains, farmland, rainforests, lighthouses and cities around the world. Artists and writers have been sharing observations, stories, reflections and images responding to their local weather and the effects of the climate emergency, with a new report from an LRB contributor about one of the WWN locations appearing every other Friday on the LRB blog.
