Between drought-sparked wildfires in Russia, oil spills in the US and India, and the worst flooding in remembered history in Pakistan and surrounding areas, it’s been a tough summer for the environment. And arguably, Pakistan has the worst of it, with an estimated 15 million people affected by the floods.

The Guardian today published a photo essay on the Pakistan flooding. The extent of the damage is incredibly vast.

USAID has announced it will provide further aid to Pakistan to help with the damage. And Tonic has a round-up of ways you can help flood victims as well.
