A Voice from Bangladesh
 / 

Solid op-ed in the NYT about Bangladesh’s dire susceptibility to global warming. The piece also serves as a heads-up on Tahmima Anam, its author, who has a novel set in Bangladesh coming out soon. Cool!

More: David Ignatius writes up a big report from GBN here in San Francisco. Succinctly:

But in Bangladesh, where millions of people live at or near sea level, even a small increase could produce a catastrophe. In a severe monsoon, 60 million to 100 million people could be forced to flee inundated areas, Schwartz warns, producing “the single greatest humanitarian crisis we have ever seen.”

Lots more in that GBN report, too — worth a look.
