Silver Lining

I think one of the minor benefits of the huge catastrophes has been an increase in contact between climatologists and operational meteorologists. I am looking forward to conversations with a couple of them as we try to figure out exactly how weird the recent events in Asia actually were in some sort of objective sense.

    We could also do with re-assessing potential costs, cf.http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-south-asia-10943606"The UN has launched an appeal for $459m (£290m) to help victims of Pakistan's flood disaster."The international community has thus far failed to meet that target; presumably in future that problem will only get worse.
