Human Geography, Vogeler
Why did you register for this course? 1) Human
geography meets your social science (category
III) and world culture requirements for your
liberal arts education. 2) Learn to become more
proficient in literary and numeric skills.
5
Human Geography, Vogeler
  • What do you want to learn about geography?
  • Geographers study places in three ways
  • Human-environmental aspects
  • Regions
  • Spatial networks

6
Human Geography, Vogeler
  • In the first week you should
  • Read the intro web pages for Geography 111.
  • Take the first web self-test for this course.
  • Go to the bookstore to rent the Atlas.
  • No paper textbook is used in this course. All
    readings are available on the web free of charge!

Why is this an odd looking map? Is there a
correct way of seeing/showing the world?

What do these maps, called cartograms, show?
population by world region wealth by world region

Human Geography, Vogeler
  • The characteristics of the world human population
    vary spatially. What does this map show?

12
Human Geography, Vogeler
  • The worlds pop varies in other ways too.
  • In addition, the richest 20 of the worlds
    population consumes 50 of all energy, 50 of all
    meat products, and produces 80 of carbon
    dioxide.
  • The USA now spends 50 of the worlds total
    military budget.

By 2015, the worlds wealthiest 1 held more
wealth than other 99.
13
The number of planets needed to sustain specific
countries at different levels of current
consumption. This gives new meaning to which
countries are over populated. Currently,
China, with 20 of the worlds population,
consumes 50 of all pork and 30 of all steel. So
is China over populated? The poorest 50 of the
world produces 7 of the carbon emissions the
richest 7 produces 50 the carbon!

15
Human Geography, Vogeler
  • The worlds population characteristics by
    country, in this case GDP per head and growth of
    GDP, are graphed two different ways.
  • Which is better? Why?
  • What other relevant characteristic might be
    plotted? Distribution of GDP or income wealth
    distribution within each country.

16
Human Geography, Vogeler
Income and wealth distribution within countries
and among classes actually matters more for
ordinary people than national statistics.
Although China is now the worlds second biggest
economy, its wealth is very unevenly distributed
throughout the country and, by extension, by
classes.
The top 10 percent of Chinese households have 57
percent of the national income.
