Cyclone Roanu in Bangladesh

Chittagong, Bangladesh Cyclone Roanu (EPA) May 22 2016

Several Facebook friends have marked in safe from Cyclone Roanu in Chittagong, Bangladesh. This is a photo of that cyclone. We’re glad to hear you are safe.

These Facebook mark-ins are a very effective way to know our friends are safe in natural disasters. But they also tell us just how widespread these floods, landslides, cyclones, hurricanes, tornados are on our planet. They are not all natural disasters but the results of climate change caused by the environmental policies of neoliberal plunder & colonialism. They are really a call to arms.

Thank God you’re safe in Chittagong.
