Arati Biswas, a 70 year old widow who lives on the shore of the Bay of Bengal, does not know what 'climate crisis' is and why her food storage is decreasing every day. She also does not know about the global or local economic recession due to Covid-19.
Her husband died 35 years ago and she lives with her daughter and three grandchildren. Arati's son-in-law is a street vendor.
Every day, she makes crackers and walks miles across villages to sell them as her daughter is ill and the son-in-law has a spinal injury so he cannot walk for hours. Arati's small income from selling crackers is used up in taking care of her family.
She lives in one of the world's most catastrophic zones: The Sundarbans. It is also home to the Royal Bengal Tigers. Scientists have forecasted by 2050, seawater would drown the whole coastal belt of Bangladesh around the Sundarbans.
Recent data from the Global Carbon Project show the top five countries which produce the most carbon dioxide. They are China (28%), the United States of America (15%), India (7%), Russia (5%) and Japan (3%).
Carbon dioxide is causing the world's temperature to rise, bringing adverse climate changes which are affecting human survival and destabilising ecological harmony. Bangladesh emits non-significant carbon dioxide but it has already become a victim of climate crisis.
