Bangladesh is sinking. The fertile, lowland country has always been at the whim of the rivers, waves and rains. But as the sea rises due to global climate change, Bangladesh’s relationship with water is becoming more complicated. Most of the country sits just seven feet above sea level. Over the next forty years almost 17 percent of the country could sink into the sea, leaving 18 million people without a home.

  • debileeThis is a reality that Westerners are responsible for. And the effects won't always be so "far" away. California drought and flooding. Hurricanes on the East Coast of the U.S. We should all take to heart the remarkable character of island nations who are fighting for their lives and cultures, and admirably. Our carbon footprint should not outweigh their rights. Thank you @everydayclimatechange for this photo journalism.
