To stop the Devastation around the world because of the building design practices is my Mission! For the true way for Preservation to be workable, is to stop the Devastation we create through these practices. Case in point, the antonym of Devastation is Preservation! Stop the Devastation of our communities and start Preserving them, Build to Flow with Nature not Resist "IT"!

To be or not to be

To be or not to be

Talk about genocide by war

Talk about genocide by war, did you know that we build to “resist” nature and the word “RESIST” means “CONFLICT or WAR,” war against nature, Motherearth!
Lets just review the first four months of this year 2010. When it comes to death toll by war verses death toll by natural disaster, whom do you think wins?
According to, “A Disastrous Year: 2010 Death Toll Already Abnormally High.” Then we have CBC News ( and the Wikipedia, Haiti’s was one of the top 10 Natural Disaster in our earthly-recorded history. The U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) states, “The January 12, 2010, Haiti earthquake, according to official estimates, 222,570 people killed, 300,000 injured, 1.3 million displaced, 97,294 houses destroyed and 188,383 damaged in the Port-au-Prince area and in much of southern Haiti. This includes at least 4 people killed by a local tsunami in the Petit Paradis area near Leogane.”
Then we have Chile 8.8 Magnitude on February 27 2010. According to USGS, “At least 507 people killed, many injured and at least 200,000 houses damaged by the earthquake and tsunami in the Concepcion-Valparaiso area. Felt in much of Chile and Argentina. Also felt in parts of Bolivia, southern Brazil, Paraguay, Peru and Uruguay. A Pacific-wide tsunami was generated and caused minor damage to boats and a dock in the San Diego area, California.”
All of this on a wake of a all time high in earthquakes around the world. With the Huffington Post reporting, “XINING, China — China poured workers and equipment into a mountainous Tibetan region Thursday in a bid to find survivors more than a day after strong earthquakes killed more than 600 people and injured thousands. Local officials said 85 percent of the buildings had been destroyed.” We have to ask ourselves when is it to much, how many more lives must be lost do to the way in which structures are built today.
These are just death by earthquake, we could go in to the death toll by floods, tummies, tornados, and such but it is to sanding for me and to lengthy to read. But after all this, we still spend as humans, more money on war and choppy construction then we do trying to preserve life, land, and liberties. The Liberty to live in a clean, prosperous, and safe environment. BUILDING CODES MUST CHANGE on a GLOBAL level! One’s “Natural Disaster Environmental History”(N.D.E.H) must be taken in to account before building.
I am beseeching the Haiti and Chile leaders to do the right thing by their people and at the same time start “A New Precedence” in the world when it comes time to rebuild their lands, by “BUILDING TO FLOW WITH NATURE NOT TO RESIST IT.”
