“Imagine you’re a mayfly born on a river in Colorado. You’re around for a day. You mate and you die. Do you believe that there’s such a thing as a snowstorm? Or skyscrapers? That’s stuff you’re never going to experience. Humans are like that with respect to earth processes. As a species, we woke up five thousand years ago. We didn’t start really taking notes until a few hundred years ago or so. We’re trying to figure out things that are ten thousand times older than our collective consciousness. We’re just opening our eyes and looking around, and yet we expect to have all the answers.”
Kathryn Miles, Quakeland: On the Road to America's Next Devastating Earthquake

“As a culture, we are particularly adept at transitioning from apathetic to panicked at a moment’s notice.”
Kathryn Miles, Superstorm: Nine Days Inside Hurricane Sandy

“America may have been providentially chosen, but that was far from true for a good number of its inhabitants. The same racist ideology that allowed this generation of people to so easily take land from the Mexicans and Native Americans was also endowing them with the justification they needed. The Irish, a growing number of Americans maintained, were not just a different race; they were visibly inferior.”
Kathryn Miles, All Standing: The Remarkable Story of the Jeanie Johnston, The Legendary Irish Famine Ship
