Bangladesh to go under water
World temperature is increasing day by day. This increase in global warming is caused by the increasing amounts of carbon dioxide around the earth. Most climatologists believe that the greenhouse effect is the likely cause of this global warming.
The speaker opined this at the seminar on Trend Environment of Bangladesh. The seminar was organized by different Environment organizations in observance of World Environment Day at Dhaka Sheraton Hotel.
The speaker said the main culprit for global warming is carbon dioxide gas. It results into the destruction and burning down of tropical rain forests, by traffic that clogs up city streets, by the rapid growth of industry, the use of chlorofluorocarbons(CFCs) in packaging and manufacturing commercial products, the use of detergents such as washing powder and washing-up-liquid.
Climatologists predict that midway through the next century,temperatures may have risen by as much as 4 C. This could catastrophically reduce mankind’s ability to grow food, destroy or severely damage wildlife and wilderness, raise sea levels and thereby flood coastal areas farmland. The alarming news about Bangladesh is that as a result of the rise of the sea level, the lower southern part of the country may one day go under water.
