You think we’ve had some bad floods in America? Take a look at what’s happening in Pakistan. The scope is hard to even imagine. “Flash floods over the weekend left one-third of Pakistan submerged from weeks of heavy rains, compounding an already difficult set of political and economic crises in the country. The catastrophic flooding has affected 33 million people, about 15 percent of the population, according to Pakistan’s National Disaster Management Authority. More than 1,130 people have been killed since June’s monsoon season began, and at least 75 died in the past day. There has been $10 billion of damage and an estimated 1 million homes wrecked.” The flooding in Pakistan is a climate catastrophe with political roots.
