Extreme weather conditions and global natural calamities have dominated this summer. There are typhoons in the Pacific and wildfires in California. Europeans cooked in temperatures that set records. Flooding had left one-third of Pakistan flooded.

A collection of photos from the last 24 hours show the destruction that, according to world leaders and environmental experts, should serve as a wake-up call for climate action.

Pakistan

In Pakistan last year, flooding brought on by abnormally strong monsoon rains led to the deaths of more than 1,300 people and the destruction of millions of homes. Many experts attribute these events to climate change.

Pakistan’s leaders referred to the flooding as “apocalyptic” and begged industrialized nations for assistance, accusing them of causing catastrophic weather. Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif declared last week that “I can say without any fear of dispute that this flood scenario is possibly the worst in the history of Pakistan.”Climate change
