Always thought about this one.Can one find a resource anywhere, why not, and why are certain regions more abundant......of course not based on historical efforts, but pure science of Earth geology, or...maybe both considerations...any ideas?
That's fine, but swamps would have been everywhere, right?
Agreed about the conflict, and the distribution that promotes such.Societies as cultures generally adapt to their exclusive environments though, over time. That's another long discussion. Yet in brief, if one region of nature and society has a certain natural commodity, and another has another, there exists the concept of trade. Clearly when one society uses all its resources up then the focus is on trade, getting out of their bubble, and producing for other societies what those other societies don't have, leading to a global trading community. Am I right with that?
For example, coal is no longer considered economical to extract on a large scale in the UK so we import it from other countries.
