To what extent is the USA losing its status as a global superpower?
Key ideas: United States remains the most powerful country on earth.
But power not increased over past year. Fracking meant United States surpassed Saudi Arabia and Russia to become the country with the world’s largest recoverable oil assets. America’s constitutional system, its business-friendly economy, and the innovation of its people are more lasting sources of power.
Challenge: The rise of China
Challenge: Putin’s Russia
Challenge: Overlooked India
The String of pearls is a geopolitical theory on potential Chinese intentions in the Indian Ocean region.
Notes: Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP)
Widespread praise for Chinese-built railway in Kenya
US GLOBAL INFLUENCE WANING?
US Elections hacked?

For IGCSE Geography 9-1 Edexcel Paper of May 2019
This PowerPoint presentation covers all aspects of the IAL Geography spec for Edexcel including all the key ideas of:
• [KI] Energy sources can be classified in different ways, and their use varies widely.
• [KI] As well as rising global demand, distribution of energy resources is uneven
• [KI] Energy security varies, as does the security of pathways
• [KI] The future supply of affordable fossil fuels is uncertain
• [KI] Major energy players are key to supply continuity
• [KI] Global energy demand has implications for the carbon cycle
• [KI] Nuclear power is a contested energy source
• [KI] Renewable energy alternatives are increasingly popular
• [KI] Radical approaches may be needed to balance energy demand with environmental concerns
Week 1: Energy supply, demand and security.
Week 2: Energy supply, demand and security / The impact of energy use
Week 3: The impact of energy use
Week 4: Energy security and the future
Week 5: Energy security and the future
The presentation links to the Edexcel updated SOW with supplementary material to enhance or simplify the core knowledge.
• Compare and contrast electricity generation and consumption by country on the EIA website.
• Investigate per capita energy use and energy types in countries at different levels of development and explain these in relation to economic and resource factors
• Drawing conclusions from resource work
• Today’s energy choices will shape the future of energy, but how should we assess their impact and adequacy? (• 1. Where is the global energy system heading, based on the policy plans and investment choices we see today.
• 2. Assess what would need to be done differently in order to reach the climate, energy access, pollution and other goals that policy makers have set themselves.)
• Use world outline maps to map areas of energy surplus (oil, coal, case, uranium) versus locations of highest consumption, and locations with high renewable potential; Add flow lines of major trade flows in oil, coal and gas
• The economic and environmental costs and benefits of :
The Athabasca Oil Sands
Brazil’s Deep Water Oil
Shale Gas/Oil in the Dakotas, USA
VIDEO LINKS to The Economist library on Energy Security, World Economic Forum, BBC, The Guardian and many others.
These are the first 9 lessons for Edexcel International A Level Geography (A2) Weather and Climate at PowerPoint Presentations with reference to exam-style questions and with quiz tests and written class and homework. This will help those of you who struggled to find resources to start the course for September 2017. Lessons include basic intro, atmospheric layers and gases, humidity, condensation, precipitation, instability, insolation, heat budgets and transfers - enough to prepare you for 9 lessons and give students a good base on which to build.
Understand how prediction and monitoring technology can reduce the impact of some disasters but not others.
