  • Economic Issues

    - Well, every time I searched for economic issues I kept getting climate issues, so I just decided to search for economic related issues such as unemployment.

    - Unemployment rate in the south:

    ~ July ‘11- 9.0

    ~ August ’11- 9.1

    ~ September ’11- 9.1

    ~ October ‘11- 9.0

    ~ November ‘11-8.7

    ~ December ‘11- 8.4

    - This is what I got from a different website, there’s a lot of information and too little space so just click here to view this very informative website.

  • Climate Affect on Settlement

    - People have settled here because of the warm weather and. . .

    - high precipitation which is good for growing crop to send to the Midwest and North.

  • Pollution’s affect of settlement

    - People probably don’t live close to big factories because those are the buildings that let off the most pollution.

    - Another place that people probably don’t live near as much as other places is the coast because off all the fumes that the cruise ships let out.
