"Claimate Change: Issue and Perspectivies for Bangladesh" Taken from the flap of the book: Human induced climate change has become an issue of considerable importance and a matter of hot debate since the early 1980s, - in Bangladesh as well as globally. First and foremost, there is the knowledge issue. How much do we know about the green house gases, green house effects, global warming and climate change? How familiar are we with the climatic processes involved in the green house effects, global warming climate change? Did IPCC work with scientific objectivity and transparency in dealing with aspects of climate science? What are the projected impacts of climate change in Bangladesh? Would the sea level actually rise and engulf part of Bangladesh due to human induced global warming? Would tropical cyclone making landfall in Bangladesh actually increase in frequency and intensity? Would drought incidence increase in North Bengal? What does the evidence say? What other problems Bangladesh face besides climate change? As the Kyoto protocol makes a sad demise, and the IPCC finds it difficult to come out of the climate gate, are we not even more required to rely on our own resilience, a quality for which we are justly proud of? This book is a collection of articles arranged in chapters from different authors to provide some answers to all the questions posed above. The answers are neither exhaustive, nor comprehensive. But it is hoped that the general readers might find a direction for finding the answers they might be looking for.
