Pakistan floods

15 Aug

I am raaaather overdrawn, but since I still managed to buy a copy of Vogue the other day I thought I better put my money where my mouth is and just donated to the Pakistan floods appeal – you can too here.

If you hadn’t heard already, this disaster is bigger than the Asian tsunami and the Haiti earthquake together, but the aid response has been much slower so far.

There is also a great New York Times article here about the link between extreme weather events, such as this, and climate change, so have a perusal if you’re interested.
