Bangladesh is slowly sinking beneath the waves will eventually cease to exist

Fascinating article by a reporter traveling through Bangladesh and reporting on the ravages of the sea on the country. Its slowly taking away the land with rising sea levels, and also destroying the water table killing vegetation, animals and people.

The article has a preachy start (after all its ALL our fault :p) but once passed there its a good read.

And, this one is not natural because they say it isn't?

:p

Silly little people!

Other than the propaganda, that was a very interesting article! Even the propaganda was fun to read, if you keep the bs straight in your head.

That must be horrible, getting sick from salinized water while watching your home sink. :(

It gets them from both ends as well, the sea rises, the rivers flood, everything becomes water...

When the floods came last year, Nurjahan had no choice but to stay here. She lived with her children waist-deep in the cold brown water for four months.

"It was really hard to cook, or go to the toilet. We all got dysentery. It was miserable." Then she seemed to chastise herself. "But we survived! We are tough, don't you think?"
