Climate of Change DVD

As an Easter special, i thought i'd show this clip from the Climate of Change DVD. It's from the good people at TEAR Australia, who work with the world's poorest people.

It looks mainly at Bangladesh, a country experiencing the "earliest and worst effects" of climate change despite the fact "they've done little or nothing to cause the problem".

Bangladesh experienced 5 floods in the 60s, 9 in the 70s, 16 in the 80s and 24 in the 90s. I can see why the quote in the video says..
"Forget about making poverty history
Climate change will make poverty permanent"

You can get the whole DVD here.
