Recode: As Egypt continues to deal with the impact of the devastating flooding that hit the country last week, there’s an idea that the U, and by extension the world, might be better off being a bit more proactive about the risks associated with living there.
In an interview with Recode, Seth Godin, a visiting scholar at Stanford’s Hoover Institution, suggested that while we might want to be a bit “a bit more cautious” about living in Egypt, we should also be careful about living next to it.
“The U.N. has put out a report on Egypt and its water resources, and that’s going to be an important issue, and Egypt needs to be on the forefront of that,” Godin said.
“But I think there’s also a way in which you could also be quite proactive, and just take a look at the data.
We know that the heat is a lot more intense here in the U., and there’s a lot of water vapor, and there are more hot springs than anywhere else in the world. “
As for the idea that we should try to move into the U’s hot spots, that’s a different idea.
We know that the heat is a lot more intense here in the U., and there’s a lot of water vapor, and there are more hot springs than anywhere else in the world.
So we’ve got to be careful not to be too reactive.”
