We have used Mr Rosling’s videos and talks SO much over the years and are grateful for the way he has educated our students in a way we could not have without his help. But rather than look at one of his talks again I wanted to share this as I LOVE the way he uses facts and data to show how the world is. He was a great geographer we and made hundreds of our pupils become better geographers too. Thank you Hans

This is good on the global effects of super volcanoes. Look at how they talk about the ash cloud effects on the other slide of the world from one of these eruptions. Also how one effect (ash) can lead to another (no sunlight) to another (temperature drop) to another (crop failure) to another (starvation) and even on to civilisation collapse……
We went through this quite quickly in class this week. So if you are a bit worried you didn’t get all the information and ideas here is the ever excellent cool geography website with EVERYTHING you need … the page is very clearly divided into causes effects and response. Just remember in our exam you need to compare this quake in a richer part of the world (MEDC) with one in a poorer part of the world (LEDC) We of course studied Nepal … Click here for the info you need on that.
Revising for your exam by answering past exam questions is THE best way to prepare and to get a better grade than in your mock.
