    Does anyone have an example of how the environmental impacts of globalisation can be addressed at a global, national and local scale?

    Also sustainable mega cities. I still remember Curitiba from GCSEs but I don't think that's enough.
    national/global scale is trading carbon credits - Kyoto protocol where countries cant go over certain emissions of co2, and they have to buy carbon credits from other countries if they go over.

    local can be buying food with low air miles,
    buying fair trade food
    recycling and reusing materials

    theres also stuff businesses can do:
    state distance transported on products so consumers can choose to buy local stuff
    using recycled materials like coca cola using recycled cans to make new cans

    LA and Mumbai. But there was a 5 marker on megacities (I chose to do Mumbai and got 5/5) last year as you may remember. I am resitting this exam too. I got a D last year. I do know where I went wrong as I got my actual exam paper back. June 2014 paper i did question 9 in section B to do with TNC's and international organisations. I just wrote about TNC's and forgot completely to write about International organisations such as FDI, IMF, World bank etc. I got 8/15 on that and got 7/10 in the a) part of question 9. Lol think I was stressing too much.

    Anyway, always remember to read the question and underline/highlight whatsoever. Define the words in the question. I think El Nino/La Nina may come up and I've tried to revise this a lot!

    Also, California disaster hotspot may come up as Philippines came up last year? Any predictions from anyone? :confused:

    ITs clever to choose Arctic if you had any preparation for Unit 3 as the pre-release is on it this year Need to get a B atleast in this to get an A or B overall in Geography. So stressed. Guess there wont be any sleep tonight. yaaaas

    I did same and yeah. Hopefully the Unit 4 and unit 3 will help us tomorrow! Im trying to calm myself anyway. If you stress, you wont be able to grasp anything. have you got any predictions for questions in general? I feel like Megacities could even be a 10/15 marker.. What do you think? Cause they gave us a 5 marker on this last year.

    Btw, Poland to UK migration did not appear in the exam last year!

    Thinking ecological impacts of climate change in the Arctic may come up. So far I've got:
    · Marine and land-based food web modifications
    · Biome distributional change (i.e. plant, animal, soil)
    o Fish = arctic char, animals = spruce beetle, caribou
    · Habitat loss (e.g. sea ice loss in Arctic = polar bears)
    · Treeline advance northwards means tundra is replaced by boreal forest.

    Could someone help expand some of my points? Also what exactly is a biome distributional change and what are examples of marine/land-based food web modifications?

    i dont have a clue what could be on it, ive done all the past papers though. oh im pretty ok with poland to uk so fingers crossed. megacities is a funny one bc its hard to predict what they could ask about it

    I'd recommend reading the examiner report summaries from the last couple of years. In June 2012 there was "candidate insecurity with the topic of food insecurity" and in June 2013 they threw in "What is the meaning of food insecurity?" (multiple choice) and a 4-mark question on it.

    Here are the past two (June '13 especially):
