I think I am more and more like a politician -- U-turning my pledges repeatedly.
Again, with Chinese trolls roaming around I don't intend to post,
but I am morally bound to post a response regarding a humanitarian crisis.
These places are often neglected by everybody else.

The report claims the main reason as climate change.
I think they have an agenda -- to ask us to reduce carbon emission and so on.
However, this is a long term solution which probably doesn't resolve the immediate threat.
Some more urgent yet not one-off question as follows:
1. Any other reason that can explain this crisis? For example, is the place over-populated? Has the administration been poor?
2. What should be done to make the place itself more resilient in the face of climate change (which is a process that cannot be stopped immediately)?
On a crueler note, I think we are too used to be well-off that we often forget, or even reject
catastrophes like this have been effective ways to reset the balance.
I agree that having civilization means we should take more effective control of such process to minimize casualties,
but we should not be surprised if it does happen.
(P.S. I actually wanted to say "this can happen to anyone of us")
Last but not least, I want to find a place to donate for this cause,
but I have to make sure that I am not donating to some pro-China or fraud organizations.
