On Friday I had my geography exam. Geography is often called the study of Earth, but perhaps it is better to call it the study of humanity and its interaction with the planet. It made me think about how ‘The World’ will come to terms with the issues of tomorrow and the future.
One of the questions was about a major world issue. That issue is resource consumption. Resource consumption naturally increases as the global population increases. On Saturday it was announced that the price of oil has increased to $139 per barrel (around £85) which will only serve to cause more problems with the current global food crisis.
