China ‘trying extremely hard’ on climate

Mostly a post for Y13 (but out of interest for Y12 too)…

Hope you have all had a successful week of revision and are ready and raring to go for Monday. One last article from me – I would like to think you have been keeping up with this news story anyway, but certainly of interest for those opting to do Superpowers or Energy for Unit 3.

Reminder that I am around if you would like any last minute exam questions marking – if not I will see you on Monday before your exam.

Happy revising 🙂

Hi all,

Please take a look/a copy of each and have a ready, particularly with resits almost over and May half term coming up – you should be reading your notes, analysis and the pre-release itself on a regular basis!

Y13 Transoceanic Railway Links

Hi all,

A few useful links below for your SWOT analysis of the transoceanic railway links. Don’t worry if you don’t have much compared with the Panama Canal expansion/Nicaragua Canal – the railway seems to have been added for you to consider its costs/benefits in general as Honduras is the country they plan to get it to go through, but interesting synoptic links with the fact China is a major source of funds for the ‘potential’ project…….
