Sorry. For _all_ of Bangladesh to go under for good (except for the
mountains in eastern Chittagong -- certainly not a place where you can stuff
tens of millions of people), the sea level would have to rise by 6 m. That
would require most of Greenland to melt. Sure, this has begun, but it's
still going to take a few hundred years.
Still, a sea-level rise by 1 m would flood 10 % of the country.
Oh, and some say 146 million rather than 144.3.
