The unpredictable floods in South Asia point to changes in patterns and extreme weather events that are becoming the norm. The monsoon shift has caused extreme precipitation resulting in floods in many cities, which caused the death toll of 105 people while displacing 7.2 million people.

Media plays a vital role in the battle against the climate crisis. Newspapers and portals must tell the truth about who is to blame for the extreme weather we’re facing right now – the fossil fuel industry.
