Geography And Human Geography

Decent Essays
Geography from my understanding is defined as the world we live in natural and human geography. That meaning anything from climate to landscapes, or from the waterfalls to the people that live on earth. Geography tells us so much about this beautiful world we live in. It teaches us about the environment , how it works and what happens when climates change unexpectedly. An example would be if a drout occurs what would happen to the harvest? When the climate changes, the landscaping such as grass, trees and even crops are not able to grow which can then lead to an issue with the people who have farm land and use crops as a way to survive. Not having rain will cause the crops to dry out and over time possibly cut out the food supply making it hard to earn money or worse causing starvation. …show more content…
Human Geography can mean a number of various things but to me I narrow it down to culture. An example would be various religions, the way certain governments work and languages spoken. All over the world so many people have different views on religion while other parts have languages they use to communicate. What can be considered sacred to one country wont be considered sacred here. It is truly amazing to see how different cultures follow different rituals and religions. These are the people that make the world what they are today. Ive always been interested in other cultural views. I love to discover what others believe in when it comes to something as silly as supersitions. To me geogrpahy is interesting and

    In my life so far I’ve been exposed to various religions. My encounters have granted me the privilege to learn and understand each religion independently. What puzzled me the most was coming across a religion that wasn’t identified as a “religion” by a believer. In this chapter of Religion Pluralism, I wish to challenge those who are Christians to first take a step back and reanalyze the definition of religion. In order to obtain a more concise and understanding of religions and their values, I believe that redefining religion in itself would be necessary.…

In the past, abolition of slavery, civil rights movement, women suffrage, immigration, religious right and prohibition of drinking were some of the incidents that happened on the history if United States that the involvement of individuals caused to gather an attention of a larger scale crowd.

    The production of food, especially in agriculture is largely dependent on factors such as sunshine, and temperature.

This is significant as agricultural farming becomes more problematic and expensive to produce food. As a result, farmers increase the prices of food which can harm people who earn a lower income and may not be able to afford to consume as much food.…

    Many countries even rely on foreign food donations to support their people. Breaking the cycle of famine, illness and death is difficult, even with resources, and “Drought is the kiss of death at the end of this sad story. It tips people over the brink into starvation.” (Simply, newint.org) If just one of the cyclic causes is corrected, could the people break out of the terrible conditions that now exist. Inadequate farming leads to inadequate food supply. It seems that plenty of land is used to farm, but due to difficult conditions, poor transportation, and even competition with “free food,” the farmers cannot keep up.…
