Bangladesh Avoids High Death Toll with Cyclone Evacuation Plan
DHAKA, Bangladesh (AP) — Tens of thousands of Bangladeshis returned Monday to wind-battered villages and rain-soaked fields after a strong storm pummeled the coast and killed at least 26 people over the weekend. Authorities had ordered about 2 million people to be evacuated from coastal areas before Cyclone Roanu hit the port city of Chittagong on Saturday, but many ignored the call after deciding the storm's winds, blowing at up to 88 kilometers (55 miles) per hour, were not such a threat. The low-lying delta nation has been regularly hit by much stronger storms. Still, tens of thousands spent the weekend in cyclo...

Using Smarter Stoves to Combat Household Air Pollution
By Bjørn LomborgMar 16 2016 (The Daily Star, Bangladesh)When it comes to cooking indoors over open fires, the harmful health effects can be equal to smoking two packs of cigarettes a day. This indoor air pollution plagues nearly nine out of every 10 Bangladeshi households, which use wood and other biofuels to cook inside. Over time, exposure to smoke from indoor cooking leads to deadly diseases such as lung cancer, stroke, and heart disease. This is why it’s the most deadly environmental problem in the world. In Bangladesh, such indoor air pollution is responsible for 10-15 percent of all deaths.It may seem ob...

Haunting Photos Show Effects Of Climate Change In Bangladesh
The number of "climate change refugees" in Bangladesh is expected to rise dramatically in the coming decades. Around 20 million people in the Asian nation are at risk of losing their homes by 2050 because of the effects of climate change, like soil erosion, rising temperatures and water pollution. If sea levels rise by just 3.2 feet, one-fifth of the country -- which is located on the delta formed by some of Asia's biggest rivers -- is expected to be covered in water. Poor populations are the most vulnerable to the changing conditions. The people of Bangladesh are already feeling the consequences o...
