The floods battered New Englandthen Nashvillethen Arkansas,then Oklahoma — and were followed by a deluge in Pakistan that has upended the lives of 20 million people.

The summer’s heat waves baked the eastern United States, parts of Africa and eastern Asia, and above all Russia, which lost millions of acres of wheatand thousands of lives in a drought worse than any other in the historical record.
