And one more clarification — the name includes “sustainable” because when I started looking for names while listening in the background to what is happening to Australia (1/3 of the island is now singed or completely burned), I began thinking about what our housing costs us as a culture. And how unsustainable it is. And what climate change will mean. In Australia one reason for the fires is that the streams have been dry for years. The ground has been steadily drying. The soil is also changing to a new state—no idea how this happens but it is apparently related to climate change and drought. Vegetation that naturally stockpiled water, like succulents, are dying out or gone. Succulents have been reintroduced around housing in the Southwest and have proven to protect the houses. But for succulents to help, they have to build up their water stores before the fire. Surrounded by ocean, Australia has apparently lost ground water in large parts of the continent. With military forces enlisted from other countries, they are literally at war. "Sustainable" includes lower environmental foot-print housing as a practical solution for land use. Regardless of income, many people have other goals in life than owning impressive housing. Sharon ---- Sharon Villines Takoma Village Cohousing, Washington DC http://www.takomavillage.org
