Antonio,

The video is definitely an eye-opener. The floods in Bangladesh are killing millions of livestock and forcing formally self-sufficient farmers to be refugees, "environmental refugees, in their own country. They stream into Dacca and compete for employment at a pittance!




Still from the movie below

"Environmental migrants: the last illusion"

If anyone doesn't believe in global warming being significant, they need to see this movie.

I have seen the video when I begun this thread.
News about this issues and other global problems are important for people to read and know.
I often read Spiegel on line and I came to this one about pollution in China.

The other day I was thinking how to show - in photographic terms - the everyday decay we assist in this country when poor and medium class people like myself - are imposed by the Government and the great capital drastic measures taking everyone to misery and imposing emigration to the young.

My Urban Decay images try to recreate this problem.

Thank you Asher for your comment

Antonio,

I thought I was well-informed about pollution in china but this extent is horrifying. Thanks for the Spiegel link. Excellent source!

Also your series Urban Decay.
