indeed, disaster could be nigh upon us all all too quickly if we don't start acting fast. Be sad if the Dominican Republic became as poor and disaster-stricken as Bangladesh

I love the photograph. It seems that a water closet is available even to the very poor in the Dominican republic. It seems though, that it is hardly an en suite convenience, as there does not even appear to be any houses nearby. One would hate to be "taken short there!

All jokes aside, the poor people! At least their government seems to be aware and is making efforts to help them to adapt.

Noted. A trip to Dominican Republic costs around 1000 in France. With 1000 we could do so much for poor people. Why not ban trips there ( and elsewhere where poverty is rampant ) or if we can't ban trips then we could tax and give to the poor. This should really be done !
