Blog Title: Pakistan: A Climate Disaster Case Study
Publication Date: 2010/08/17
URL: http://www.wunderground.com/blog/RickyRood/comment.html?entrynum=168
Short Description: The 2010 monsoon-related flood as a climate disaster


Blog Attributes The combination of weather and climate and people and infrastructure and agriculture come together to create a climate disaster. Climate projections would suggest that this sort of disaster will become more common in the future. Analysis of the Pakistani floods and response to the floods serves as a potential case study to inform us about the future.
