I blog about environmental and social justice issues because I am very concerned about the health of the interdependent web of life of which we are a part.

Bhola Island, Bangladesh (from Al Jazeera)

From the video:  "Much of their crops are drowning in sea water.  As climate change intensifies, coastal areas will be innundated. Therefore, we will lose land. Under business as usual conditions, up to 30 % of agricultrual productivity will be lost in South Asia." 

With a sense of impending doom, Bangladeshis are adamant that something must be done to reverse the climate change which threatens to swallow the country's islands and shoreline, irrevocably changing the lives of the millions who have their homes there.
Why do we in North America live in climate change denial?
