Jeff Bezos Buys a House of 57 million pounds, The Location is Creepy

 


The world's second richest man, Jeff Bezos, recently spent a fortune on a luxury beachfront property in Hawaii. However, it turned out that the house was quite scary because it was prone to flooding, it could even sink in the future. In addition, it is also close to the lava area.

The property consists of a vast expanse of land and a luxurious mansion and other buildings, located on the Island of Maui in Hawaii. The price is around 57 million pounds . Bezos' own fortune is estimated at $140 billion, so that's a small amount for him.


Bezos is following in the footsteps of Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg, who also bought up luxury properties on Kaui Island near Maui.



However, the area aside from being remote, could be threatened by rising sea levels. Moreover, the surrounding area is a very large area close to Haleakala Mountain. The volcano may erupt in another 500 years.


Experts say Jeff Bezos cares about anticipating climate change, but perhaps only because he wants to save his home. He was accused of being a hypocrite because he likes to travel on private jets that waste fuel.




"There's something unsettling about a billionaire flying into a climate conference on his private jet and they're telling the world to stop climate change," said Professor Mark Maslin of University College London.


The Hawaiian government itself has warned of the threat of major flooding in various areas. "Chronic flooding may render 10,441 hectares of land unusable and 6,500 structures projected to be at risk due to rising sea levels," they wrote on their official website.


"13 miles of beaches in the state have already been lost, including 10% of O'ahu's coast due to coastal erosion. 70% of beaches across the state are currently under threat," they added.
