Bangladesh Be Damned

I suppose after witnessing the absurd conditions and realizing how helpless any one person is to the Bangladeshis – to stop global warming, to fight corruption, to end the poverty – you’re likely to have one of two responses: to cry or to laugh. When you start connecting the dots – the political dots, the scientific dots, the religious dots – you realize more and more how interconnected our world is becoming, for better or for worse. Black’s article is a must read – and the photographs are definitely a bonus for anyone who isn’t able to travel to Bangladesh to see the beauty and destruction firsthand.

Here is a link to George Black’s article “The Gathering Storm,"and to the accompanying photo slide show.
