Personal Statement for Geography

Hi guys,

How can I link the financial crisis in 2008 with geography?
Why do you want to?

Thank you! Do you have any articles I can read upon on Physical Geography?

Physical geography is a very broad and diverse field, what aspects, debates or topics within physical geography do you have additional knowledge on or are interested in learning more about currently?
