Human and environment interaction

  1. 1. Human and Environment InteractionThe environment has a huge impact on how humans live in Australia.Central Australia, also known as the Dead Heart, is and always has beenuninhabitable by humans because of its dry nature and immense heat.Human settlement has been restricted to land around water such as theriver systems or the ocean surrounding the country. The weather alsohas a lot to do with the inability to live in certain parts of the country.With rainfall being as little as once every five years in the Dead Heart,and around 45-50 inches a year in cities like Sydney it is made very clearwhy people have settled the way they have. It would cost way toomuch to try and supply water to these lands so people have mainlysettled on the coasts.To adapt to the nature of Australia, people have planted food such as wheat and raised animals for wooland beef. Mining opportunities have also contributed to Australias success with minerals such as gold,iron, copper, lead, silver, uranium, nickel, bauxite and zinc.Although Australia is only responsible for less than 1.5 percent of the world pollution count, theirpopulation of only 22.6 million suggests that they are contributing too much percentage. With most ofthis population being on the coasts, the small population more inland is very isolated from most of thepopulation. Within about the last thirty years, change in technology has greatly impacted their lives.Even advancements in cars have helped with cost driving the long way to large cities.The impact the environment has had on humans is substantial in Australia. Even with the way the worldhas built, some environmental issues just havent been resolved.
