Here's a random one which lifted me up a bit:

Bangladesh, home to 160 million people, celebrated a ‘development miracle’ in 2021, its 50th year of independence. In the last three decades, GDP per capita has increased seven fold, 24 million people have been lifted out of poverty, life expectancy has risen to 73 years, infant and maternal mortality rates have fallen by a factor of five, the literacy rate has increased from 35% to 74%, and more than 97% of the population now has access to electricity, up from 62% in 2014.

Good luck to them; they’ll need it. Something near 75% of Bangladesh is said to be below sea level, with another 17% threatened by rising seas by 2050.

Sorry to be such a Debbie Downer - maybe I’ll check out the rest of the Medium list.

1. That statistic is erroneous. Maybe you're addicted to Debbie Downer info?
2. Do you think they're better or worse prepared to deal with sea level rise, or anything else, if they have a 7X higher GDP, more than doubled their literacy rate, and increased access to electricity by 50%?
