  • Geography Is The Nile River: And The Dam That Might Kill It

    21 MAG 2024 ยท ๐Ÿ“ Substack: https://geographyiseverything.substack.com/ ๐Ÿ“ฝ๏ธ YouTube: https://studio.youtube.com/channel/UC7-Z34pbJ0ZAOJRmUCEz0Cg ๐Ÿ“ท Socials: https://linktr.ee/geographybygeoff ๐Ÿ“– Check out Hunter's atlas' here: https://www.indiebound.org/search/book?keys=hunter+shobe The Nile River is an incredible geographic feature on our planet. But despite being so closely associated with Egypt, it actually runs through many other countries making it equally important to hundreds of millions of people.

And this is leaving some really large geopolitical questions hanging out in the open.
