Why the world’s largest mangrove forest is sinking – BBC News



Their ancestors have lived in the Sundarban delta on the Bay of Bengal for centuries, but thousands of people are now leaving the region because of climate change.

Violent annual storms which batter the delta, rising sea levels, and melting ice from the Himalaya mountains are gradually overwhelming the low-lying islands.

These people have become first-hand witnesses to the catastrophic impact of climate change.

  1. Not only lose 5-10 million people but also lose global heritage, as if poor people's life has no meaning as compared to the place. Plus nobody wants to change their habits and bring back sustainability. We have exploited the nature for far too long. It is time to re-think our consumption patterns. We are concerned but comfortable as long as others suffer, ignorant that the adversity will be at our doorstep soon if this continues and it will be too late by then.

  3. This is so sad freaking Indian government doesn’t do anything like wtf man stand up it’s been a years it’s going like this.

  4. Tou told about indian part of Sunderbans why you are silent about the otherpart which is situated in Bangladesh?

  5. It’s already lost, there’s talk we have already crossed the known climate triggers, and we are just pissing in the wind from here on out. The heatwaves are just going to continue, meaning the methane hydrates release, causing more warming. I don’t know anymore. 😐

  6. The Sundarban mangrove forest covers an area of about 10,000 square km of which in Bangladesh extend over 6,017 km2 and in India it extend over 4,260 km2. So the major area of The Sundarban is in Bangladesh. 👍

  7. Creative society
    International online conference "The Global Crisis. This Already Concerns Everyone" on 24.07.2021 with translation into more than 70 languages ​​of the world, including sign language translation. Global climate change, what can we do to weather the coming disasters, the exponential development of artificial intelligence in the coming years and massive unemployment.

    Modern civilization has reached the point of instability and global crises. The global financial, economic, environmental, anthropological, and climate crises are realities that every person is already facing. But this is only the beginning. Do people realize the full scope of the upcoming threats? Radical changes in all spheres of life in the near future are inevitable for every person on the planet. Yet, how aware is the world community of these changes, not to mention being prepared for them?

  8. Extreme weather conditions caused by climate change have become the norm. We must act fast to mitigate its impact.

  9. The climate is changing, and so is the use of the land in question. That land has been converted to farmland, et cétera, and this British video conveniently ignores that part of the history of The Sundarbans. This video only has subtitles in a British language, and they substitute the language of the people in the video.

  10. Sad that this is happening, but when you consider that some places are rising as others are sinking, what can anyone do about it. For instance, one castle 🏰 in England in times gone by used one of its portals for ocean access. The same castle is now about 3 kilometres away from the ocean. This is sad but true.

  11. As a person from this area i can tell we are suffering flood almost everyyear ,and islands are vanishing 🥺
    Water level is going high

  12. Climate change is inevitable and big polluters are not doing anything to prevent it. At least each country should care about its people.

  13. We, humans, think that we are the master of earth. To nature, we are monsters. But as always, we are at the mercy of Nature.
    Nature will win. Will always win.
