1/9/2008 1 The Swan Song Lecture 25: Concluding Comments on Geography 1000 Greg Veeck Spring 2008 In the lectures, I have tried to establish some basic points of departure…. # 1) Humans are a part of “nature”. To pretend otherwise is foolish. The societies we have constructed will ALWAYS have effects on the ecosystems we exist within BUT in turn our environments effect us just as much.

1/9/2008 2 # 2) The basic needs of 6.33 BILLION people for food and fiber must be met--but the way we meet these needs is culture-specific. Some solutions we embrace , and some will be rejected--not just on economic grounds, but based on political, cultural, and environmental conditions # 3) There are many indicators that our current approach-- initiated by the Industrial Revolution--is NOT sustainable over time…. We seek solutions because we must--or we will drown in our own waste # 4) Environmental Problems are “scale specific” Local, regional, and global environmental problems are different, and problems at one scale are not always apparent at other scales.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
