1 An unequal world
Professor Danny Dorling, human geographer and a leading academic in the field of inequality in the UK, encourages people to take a wider view of global inequality by looking at the unequal distribution of global resources. This is an issue that, in an era of climate change, is likely to be of increasing relevance to any debates about responding to global inequality.
Watch the following TED talk at the link below in which Dorling picks up on many of the issues you have looked at in this course, such as the fears about population growth and the improvement in child mortality rates. He also goes on to highlight how the global population has enough water, food, and indeed energy, if everyone is seen as ‘one people’.
