…at least it’s trying to – The earth may be trying to SAVE ITSELF. First sunspots (which contribute to, but don’t cause, global warming) have slowed way down. Now the country of Bangladesh, which was at risk of drowning, is increasing its landmass.
Satellites reveal that, over the last 30 years, the country’s landmass has actually been GROWING by about 7 square miles a year due to sediment dumped onto the land by rivers.
But like the reduction in sunspots, this is only a temporary reprieve, which gives us time to DO something about global warming. In BBC News, Mark Dummett quotes the UN’s Atiq Rahman as saying, “The rate at which sediment is deposited and new land is created is much slower than the rate at which climate change and sea level rises are taking place.”
