The Climate Survivor

Due to the increase in the temperature of the atmosphere, the sea level is constantly rising and natural disasters like cyclones, tidal surges, floods, river erosion and landslides are increasing on the earth. 15 or 20 years ago, there was a major natural disaster, but now 2 to 3 years after a major disaster hit, which caused the disaster for coastal people. Sea level has risen compared to previous years. Thousands of acres of coastal land are regularly flooded during the monsoon season, even at low tide. The dam is the only resource on the coast in a catastrophic environment. Breakage continues in all seasons due to lack of strong dams, the situation is evident in monsoons. Although the government provided adequate funding for the construction of the new dam, it was weakened due to widespread irregularities and corruption, which resulted in the dam breaking underwater pressure during the tidal surge. The boy has collected various abandoned things floating in the tide.
