Dedicated since ancient times to the study of interactions between Life processes and the environmental influences of our Earth-world home, and recognized by Charles Darwin as 'the Queen of Sciences', Geography has provided an epistemological store of knowledge relating to past human experiences, whether propitious or doleful in nature. This pool of wisdom recorded in the Language of Geographical connectivity, could be of great potential value in guiding decisions, and the formulation of remedial strategies required to redress the pernicious effects of human cupidity and reckless exploitation of human and physical resources. But, the discipline of Geography has become an isolated and fractured science, at a time when it could be called upon to counter the destructive effects of systemic problems, such as climate change. The world is at a crossroads, reeling in shock from the traumatic effects of war, clouded with anxiety about the future.
