Bangladesh: At the Mercy of Climate Change

BANGLADESH - thousands of fishermen died off Bangladesh this past summer. The Bay of Bengal was UNUSUALLY ROUGH. Usually, the authorities only issue a storm warning to fishermen to stay at home once or twice a year. Last year, four warnings were issued in the space of two months. Every warning meant the fishermen lost valuable days at sea. When the last warning came, they could not afford to stay ashore and went to sea anyway. Officially 1,700 drowned, but many Bangladeshis believe the real number may be closer to 10,000. "Was it climate change? We don't know. Was it UNUSUAL? Yes."
