Despite the fact that water is everywhere in Bangladesh, around 20 million people in the coastal belt suffer from a drinking water crisis due to excessive salt-water contamination.

Angry Planet is the place to be for extreme encounters with our rapidly changing environment. Host George Kourounis comes face to face with the stark effects of the Earth’s evolving climate as he visits the world’s most dramatic and extreme natural phenomena from the coldest city on Earth in Siberia to the deep caves of Laos, and all the way to ground zero for climate change in Bangladesh, all in search of the unmistakable changes that are currently endangering Earth’s delicate eco-system. George has already descended into some of the world’s fiercest volcanoes, stood up to the toughest hurricanes on Earth, chased violent and unpredictable tornadoes and withstood unbearable heat and cold to bring viewers face to face with the extremes this Angry Planet has to offer.

The Angry Planet team doesn’t shy away from danger, it goes looking for it. Watch all-new episodes of Angry Planet beginning Fridays at 7 p.m. ET / PT as part of Earth Month on Pivot, Participant Media's television network.
