Where to find the first ten million victims

April 22, 2006

NPR’s Living on Earth and Salon are producing a joint web-radio series on “Early Signs” of global climate change. (You can get past Salon’s prescription barrier by clicking through ads.) This week’s issue concerns the impact on Bangladesh, where crop failure from change in rain patterns, and destruction of village drinking water supplies by rising salt water, are already becoming pressing problems. It will also be the front line for rising oceans. Even the most modest ocean level changes that models predict by century’s end will displace tens of millions of people.

“These things are the beginning of sorrows.” Matthew 25:8
