In addition to the ongoing humanitarian crisis in the North-West, thanks to flooding (this is what climate change does, deniers!), there is major trouble in Karachi as well. (links via @ImanQureshi)

Five people have been injured in a grenade attack in the Sakhi Hassan area of Karachi on Wednesday. Two unidentified men on a motorbike hurled a hand grenade inside Jamia Shamsul Ulum Suroor. The attack took place when people had gathered at the mosque for Isha prayers.

Earlier, four bodies were recovered from various localities of Orangi Town in Karachi, while one person was shot dead and three others were injured in firing incidents in the Kharadar area.
The death toll in the wake of Karachi violence now stands at 73 and 130 have been injured.

Bloody hell. According to Dawn newspaper, most of Karachi is under strict lockdown.

Back to the main crisis, over 3 million people have been affected so far

    Last year the monsoon was around 30 percent lighter than normal. No doubt that was due to climate change as well!

    Mr Eugenides:

    Climate change does seem to be causing more extreme weather fluctuations, as you point out.

    Please dont complicate it like that. Its easy to blame CC, its like a catch all. There is no need to deny some link either. But there’s a lot of stuff going on there if we want to blamestorm.

    The point about global warming / climate change isn’t that it makes everything just hotter. It’s that you see massive climate fluctuations as a result as well.

    You should know this Mr E
