Geography and the Disappearing World
The Independent newspaper turned up trumps again today, with a 5 page special on the climate crisis facing us, and a very useful glossy poster of the Dynamic Earth, with Plate Tectonics and Volcanic detail...
This is useful for those of you who are teaching Climate Change.
There is also a feature on "An Inconvenient Truth" which I have heard mixed things about, and also an interesting piece on the author JG Ballard.

Geography and Development
Why not try the weird and wonderful GAPMINDER, which has apparently been appropriated by Google. http://tools.google.com/gapminder
Track the blobs, draw graphs, watch the map change...
