    Jewish Population without the Holocaust

    The Holocaust of course is one of the most infamous genocides in history, killing roughly 11 million people. Over half that number were Jews-the most common estimate being around 6 million. My question is, if those 6 million Jews had not been exterminated, what would the Jewish population be...
  13. Coal in California

    Hi all, California's San Francisco Bay area is the perfect place to build ports and cities on because of its unique geopolitical shape. The Sierra Nevada squashes up the low lying lands making the elongated 'Great Valley', thus the San Francisco Bay is huge but only inset into the American...
