Must one weep each day they gaze upon this earth and observe the unwanted death and destruction? Death and destruction that can be prevented through Building Code change worldwide. If we the designers, investors, builders, and citizens start our own movement, stop building to RESIST nature, and started building to FLOW with nature, we could save our own lives, the life of our community, in addition to the world’s depleting natural resources.
It seems every news show and paper one view’s these last few years mentions a natural disaster. A week does not pass without Wildfires, Oil spills, Tornadoes, Tsunami’s, Earthquakes, Volcanic activity, Flash flooding, Cyclone’s, Sandstorms, and Title waves been an issue of humanitarian efforts.
Have you asked yourself how many people around the world, die, each year do to these Natural Disaster Phenomenon’s? This year alone, it is well over 200,000 people that have died thus-far.From livescience.com
Please look beyond the box and find faith in the “Idea” to “Build to Flow with Nature” and not to resist it! Building “GREEN" is not good enough if the structure you build will still falter. The light House still stands where square beach houses are no more. The bolder in the field the farmer could not move and the towns sphere shaped water tower still stands where the square farmhouse and the town of square buildings are flattened.
Heed these words, “Before you build, take into account your Natural Disaster Environmental History (N.D.E.H.)” for only then do you build for a better tomorrow for all concerned which is true sustainability!
