100 years from now it will be gone – We reported that a tiny island nation is going under for the 3rd time, but now a much bigger country?Bangladesh?is set to drown as well, and 150 million people will lose their homes. If you live in a coastal city, Water World may be in YOUR future as well.

He writes, “Bangladesh is a flat, low-lying land made of silt, squeezed in between the melting mountains of the Himalayas and the rising seas of the Bay of Bengal. As the world warms, the sea is swelling?and wiping Bangladesh off the map.”
