In a sense Climate Change is real, and has been for the last 1000 years: as the last ice age slowly ends, the ocean has been rising an average of 1.9mm per year for all that time, 1.9 metres per millennia, not good news for Bangladesh in the long, long run.

Sea-walls and Flood control infrastructure can make Bangladesh much more habitable: land can be built up using soil dredged from rivers and floodwaters carried away by deeper watercourses. Look at the Netherlands: with sufficient effort and technology, even land below sea-level can be farmed. Far better to invest in this than in wasting money on the war on Carbon.
