Enviromental Factors that effect government

Weather vs. Govenment

To say, if i must, about the effects of weather in demonstrating control over social structure of any culture, this proceeding over the entire planet. Of this, there are different factors that pertain to each given region on the earth, such as temperatures being hot or cold, to the distance from a particular plate. There are also smaller aspects as well, from the H2O falling, to the amount of elements pursuing the natural air roadways of the planet, and resolving whether it has a positive or negative impact against social structures and individuals therein. To put into context, we must first define the temperatures that impact general regions among the planet.

To start, a region consisting of cold, snow driven weather would help to define a particular social structure over the course of thousands of years, the human body adapting to the colder temperatures by growing hair, instincts driven by scarcity of food, and emotions of a more relaxed state from the cooling of the brain. The opposite of this particular scenario would be a desert region, the air filled with sand and humid winds, the cause and effect on a human consisting of more adrenaline filled actions, the social structure more scattered because of heat induced confusion from brain overreaction. In conjunction to these two scenarios, I have found that the areas situated in between the equators and the poles of the earth are most suited to a social structure that can produce guaranteed results in terms of political superiority and economic prosperity. This is mainly due to the temperatures of modest regions laying around 76-86 degrees, and the human brain's maximum energy potential, therefore increasing choice making and basic processing sets.

This can be proven through the look at most European countries that live amongst the equator-pole region, and how most over the course of the years have produced the Enlightenment and the romantic age, just to name a couple of the cultural and scientific advancements that have found its home in that particular region; countries such a Great Britain, Germany, Prussia, Russia, Austria, and France just to name a few. To help clarify why most equatorial countries played their dominance too, it is strongly advised to announce that they played their part from 2000-0 AD, a time when the region most modest being where the equator lies now, Egypt, Macedonia, Greece, Carthage, and Rome displaying just a few of where great men led nations of economic and military might and prosperity.

In Conclusion, I believe that regions that don't fall under 64-degree averages and 95 degree temperatures, with storms that don't enforce natural destruction, can produce nations that can deliver powerful political structure and exemplify materialistic gains. This is in respect to the notion that the temperature rises and falls with environmental factors, and over the course of the life span of the planet, the prosperous region has moved with earth's basic functions, from land expansion and retraction, to elemental changes in the atmosphere.

Interesting Hub. I've never thought to connect the development of society in relation to it's climate. Something definitely to think about : )

It is a very interesting hub I thought, to take into consideration every aspect of the area, not just society itself. Thanks for the comment.
