  1. This is a very concerning article about rising water levels due to global warming and climate change. About 25% of people live in areas around the Bay of Bengal, where rising water levels and storms have become a major threat. Additionally, those affected have nowhere to go as the migration away from the bay is a difficult journey that has ended with a harsh reception. Nevertheless, it is good to see that they have tried to relocate, unlike the people of New Orleans and Flammable. Rising water levels is a problem that will come to impact most of the globe. In the United States, cities such as New Orleans and Boston face a similar threat due to their altitude and proximity to water. A huge percentage of people across the planet are facing the threat of losing their homes to increasing water levels and as a result, will be left with no choice but to relocate to other areas that would otherwise have been unaffected by the water level, but are now affected by a growing population due to migration. People across the world need to take the necessary steps to prevent rising water levels to avoid the chaos that will almost certainly ensue.
