"Human beings are members of a whole in creation of one essence and soul. If one member is afflicted with pain, other members uneasy will remain."

Climate Change

Bangladesh is one of the countries in the world most vulnerable to the effects of global warming.

Floods have worsened the outlook for the 150 million inhabitants, most of whom are desperately poor.

Glaciers in the Himalayas have melted more than in the past, and scientists say that Bangladesh may lose as much as 20 per cent of its land to flooding by 2030. Twenty million people unable to farm their flooded land could then become "climate refugees."

Henry Kacprzyk, a Philadelphia zoo curator, explained how reducing energy use and recycling can cut the greenhouse gas pollution that contributes to global warming.

Global warming causes several problems to the poor countries that cannot afford to build a defensive infrastructures. Rich countries create huge problem to the poor countries!

But can capitalism be greened?

The poor are greener than the rich and yet far more vulnerable to environmental problems!
