It’s pretty clear now that Pakistan has been struck with a biblical-level apocalypse. Refugee camps are overflowing, food is in severe short supply and thousands of people are being turned away from aid.
Everyone remember what I said about being a refugee? About how not to become one, and don’t make yourself one either? The Pakistan tragedy proves this point beyond a shadow of doubt. You do not want to be a refugee.
This tragedy is going to get much worse. Pakistan is now expecting serious disease epidemics. It is my guess that this situation is going to get a lot worse before it can get better. With an infrastructure and agriculture wiped out, the millions impacted will require a great deal of help. Already the world is reeling under one environmental catastrophe after another, Pakistan will be severely impacted for a long time.
