Rising Seas and Global Warming

Very interesting article on the NY Times about rising sea levels in Bangladesh.

"Bangladesh relies almost entirely on groundwater for drinking supplies because the rivers are so polluted. The resultant pumping causes the land to settle. So as sea levels are rising, Bangladesh’s cities are sinking, increasing the risks of flooding."

Also, attached is a photogallery of how people around the world have been dealing with rising sea leves. Take a look and comment your thoughts!
