Averting a Tragedy of the Global Commons - The Globalist

Averting a Tragedy of the Global Commons - The Globalist | UNIT II APHuG | Scoop.it

Medieval villages risked a "tragedy of the commons" when farmers — individually pursuing their economic self-interest — depleted a shared natural resource by collectively overgrazing it. Seán Cleary, founder of the FutureWorld Foundation, explains that in the hyperconnected world of today we risk a tragedy of the "global commons."

Sierra_Mcswagger's curator insight, September 10, 10:02 AM

This video is primarily talking on the widely known topic of migration. 3 percent of the worlds population is living away from there place of birth. The push of migration from places include poverty, war, and environmental disasters. The migration pull in some places are because of  economic opportunity, and political freedom. Migration is increasing, and is thought of as a bad thing.(s.s.)

Aurora Rider's curator insight, October 7, 8:59 PM

This video is great for going over the many different aspects that go along with migration. It talks about what migration is and the reasons why people migrate known as push and pull factors. It talks about the different types of migration such as asylum seakers and illegal immigration. It mentions the disadvantages and advantages of migration.

Katelyn Sesny's curator insight, October 31, 12:27 PM

Pro-Natalist Policies

Jacob Crowell's curator insight, October 27, 10:41 AM

This shows what Pro-Natalism looks like in the 21st century. Youtube videos, and competitions that can go viral and trending. I find it interesting how these policies are trying to gain traction through video campaigns with sexy models and catchy slogans like "Do it for Demark". Population geography can be a key indicator of the characteristics of a country or nation. Denmark knows they need to counter a falling birthrate in order to stay growing this is definatly a modern way of going about that.

Jennifer Brown's curator insight, November 11, 1:18 PM

Wow! Do it for Denmark. There's no reading between the lines on this one. This advertisment is certainly something a sign of desperation but I guess if your birth rates are dropping you'll do whatever you can to make sure your country can stay populated. Why don't just offer free Holidays to it's people for more of a perk? Can't promise to reproduce but maybe it would help more?

This is an interesting little chart because it reveals to us which countries have the highest percentage of migrants that make up their general population. Definitely suprised me to see Qatar as the number one on the list, I would have expected the US to be at the top, but it is not even in the top 10!

Population pyramids: Powerful predictors of the future

"Population statistics are like crystal balls -- when examined closely, they can help predict a country's future (and give important clues about the past). Kim Preshoff explains how using a visual tool called a population pyramid helps policymakers and social scientists make sense of the statistics, using three different countries' pyramids as examples."

bobby isham's curator insight, September 10, 9:43 AM

In 2010, most of the world's population was younger than 60 years old. There was very little older people and almost none that are over 100 years old. There are more younger people because a lot of families are having more kids. That is what I see in this population pyramid.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Grant Graves's curator insight, September 11, 7:18 PM

Population pyramids provide a simple insight into the demographics of a population of an area. Pyramids as such can be an easy representation to figures including gender characteristics. Less developed countries tend to have lower, wider population pyramids while more developed countries tend to have taller, thinner population pyramids. In this manner, a population can be quickly be compared or contrasted.

Have you even wanted to explore an interactive map of the United States and be able to click on any neighborhood to see the local population age structure and compare that to the national, state or county data?  If not, you don't know what you've been missing.  This is a fantastic resource that lets you and your students explore the data AND ask spatial questions.  It's definitely one that I'll add to my list of favorite resources.  This population pyramid shows that Jamestown's population is much older than the national average; how come?

Feeding the Whole World

dilaycock's curator insight, October 19, 6:45 PM

Fresco argues that we tend to see "home-made" agriculture as a thing of beauty, whereas the reality is that many small scale farmers struggle and live a subsistence lifestyle. The adoration of small-scale farming, notes Fresco, is a luxury to those who can afford it. Large-scale production has increased the availability and affordability of food. Food production should be given as high a priority as climate change and sustainability, and we should seriously consider ways in which land can be used as a multi-purpose space that includes agriculture.
