Due to rising sea levels, residents are being forced to leave the world’s largest delta region at the mouth of the Ganges River in India and Bangladesh, where numerous islands have been home to over four million people. With two islands that have already become completely submerged, studies carried out by Kolkata's School of Oceanographic Studies at Jadavpur University revealed that 12 more are significantly eroded and another six are extremely vulnerable.

Jadavpur University scientists, we appreciate this timely warning of the climate change threats to our island brethren. Blessed be all caring and responsible actions in swiftly restoring the natural balance of our Earth.,
