NY Times Article: Rising Sea Level Endangers Millions in Bangladesh

24 Mar

A terrific New York Times story by Gardiner Harris, “Borrowed Time on Disappearing Land: Facing Rising Seas, Bangladesh Confronts the Crisis of Climate Change”, complete with fabulous photos and a video, tells the tragic future faced by millions living in the Bangladesh delta and lowlands because of rising sea levels from global warming. You can read the whole story here.

Bangladesh, with its low elevation and severe tropical storms, is among the countries most vulnerable to the effects of climate change, though it has contributed little to the emissions that are driving it. Credit Kadir van Lohuizen for The New York Times
