Abstract:

In the series, acclaimed geographer Alec Murphy presents significant discoveries, individuals, and theories that make human geography a cutting edge science in the 21st Century.

In the second program, population geographers introduce the factors that influence population distribution, the growth of cities, and the stages of transition from an agricultural to an industrial society. When world population reached 1 billion people, Malthus predicted that planet Earth's resources would not support future growth; that people would starve. Later, patterns of human migration were defined by geographers and the push and pull reasons for migration, observed. Migrations of the Sioux nation exemplify the push and pull reasons for human migration. Conversely, the movement of people to and from California illustrates the tendency of population systems to equalize over time. The "brain drain" and "brain gain" of students who migrate to obtain a good education, are another example of the diffusion process that occurs in migratory counterflows. The program closes with statistics and predictions of world population growth and a leveling off that geographers expect will occur by 2050.
