In the September 2012 issue, editor Peter Miller writes about weather gone wild, and the even wilder weather still to come. Photographer Stephanie Sinclair and writer Joshua Hammer offer an intimate look at life in Yemen and the challenge of dealing with rebels, refugees, and al Qaeda. Other articles explore the ocean life around underwater mountains; Roman walls, the far-reaching remnants of the Roman Empire that still dot landscapes today; and the quirky life of Romania’s nouveau riche.
