How does the location effect people ?

To settle in the forever south is limited to a number of depressions where irrigated agriculture may be pursued due to easily accessible supplies of fresh water from deep aquifers. These oases produce a wide variety of fruits and vegetables and support data plantations. While these areas contain highly productive systems, they are not allowed in population size because of the limitation on amounts of water which is not pure.

Germa Pyramids

Effects of government

The government of Libya is called Military dictatorship. The people in Libya known as Libyans don't like their government. The government is very selfish trying to keep all the riches, water, food as much as they can. About 50,000 people have no government control in Libya. Unlike the United States the Libyan government does not allow people in Libya to vote for their leaders so when one leader dies another person from the leaders family will take over.

Type of Economy effects Libyans

Oil is the driving factor of Libya. Oil and gas production account for 65 percent of the country’s GDP, 96 percent of exports, and 98 percent of government revenues.

Explain how people use the environment

As we stated, Libya had no clean water to drink. The would have to get water that was polluted. One way they used their environment is by drinking the rain water. As you might already know that Libya is a very dry place. Libya first of doesn't get very much rain so that's what causes the dust in that area.

How has the environment been modified?

All the man-made landmarks that have been made ,have changed or modified pure Libyan soil. If all of those landmarks had not been made than Libya would not be what it is right now. Also a few effects of the environment being modified, is that Libya has stalls outside that sell vegetables,toys,utensils,etc. The vegetables have to stay moist, in order for people to buy them fresh. If people are selling things on the ground, then a few small insects may come if they are thirsty and the vegetables have water in it. The vegetables may be ruined when someone comes to buy them.

Methods of Communication

There are 3 radio stations in Libya runned by the government. There are also 4 daily newspapers and Internet connectioms are runned by the government by a company named LTT ( Libya Telcom & Technology ).

How are people,goods,and natural resources transported ?

If you have your own car or motorcycle you have some limits like you can't drive through the southern part of Libya or you will be paying a fine. Depending on which car you have you can go according to a particular speed limit like if you have 4WD ( type of car) you can only travel 100km/hr. while the rest of the people are driving at top speed. To get goods to Libya they have them shipped or depending on their size their mailed. At first in Libya natural resources were shipped by train and then ever since 1950 trains stopped working so they found and brought the natural resources themselves.

How does the location impact the movement

Libya on the north is bordered by the mediterranean sea. For this reason, a lot of the goods are transported by boat. Transportation on boat in Libya is really popular, because train tracks were banned in the1950's.
