Adaptive Housing

The Habitat for Health (H4H) Adaptive Housing project recommends building dome homes with steel-reinforced struts and a range of accessories designed to accommodate special needs of people whose lives have been disrupted by ecological climate induced disasters and economic conflict disasters like Multiple Chemical Sensitivity (MCS) due to exposure to pollutants that have accumulated exponentially since the industrial revolution and resulted in the serious consequences that all life is currently facing.

The power of the individual to shape the course of history may be one of the most underdeveloped of all natural resources. It is only by the agreement of individuals that the complex relations between Nature, government, business, and people can produce benefits of a developed, multicultural society.

[ Working Toward Sustainable Development, Brian Hack, 1998.]

Today Brian Hack is an individual of the lowest common denominator, to offer to shape the course of clear and present solutions to economic survival and climate changeĀ  aka: (eco-eco relations) from the bottom up and diametrically opposite targets with respective ways and means to similar outcomes for existential survival from the top down historical global economic activities recently released in "Latest UN report on Climate Change." [2023]

The Habitat for Health focus is to research, design, construct, publish, and invest in the most affordable solutions for issues and opportunities in the areas of Agriculture, Employment, Housing, and Transportation for persons with MCS. More more than 30 years ago I became aware of a concept we face as a species called the Doomsday Clock, a symbol that represents the likelihood of human-made global catastrophes.

Forests are shrinking, water tables are falling, soils are eroding, wetlands are disappearing, fisheries are collapsing, range lands are deteriorating, rivers are running dry, temperatures are rising, coral reefs are dying, and plant and animal species are disappearing and waste that does not break down is accumulating. These natural indicators help to identify thresholds for sustainable yields and mark loss or dematerialization of natural resources. In other words, natural indicators that monitor the carrying capacity of Earth and the impact of economic development on natural resources and ecosystems.

Regardless of cause, the threshold of deterioration or collapse of natural systems has been reached. Individual power must now be called upon and applied to help work toward sustainable development. With an increase in understanding of relations between economics and nature, individual power grows. Wake up, join the GAIA Fan Club, ask your family and friends to join. Sit back or get involved, then watch what happens...

In order to use 21st century, high performance, bottom-up, low-cost, high-yield Permaculture four-season greenhouse and field, Sharecropping, H4H identifies and recycles or develops land to grow food, with surplus sold or traded to restaurants, neighbourhood grocers, and Food Bank markets.

GAIA Fan Club (GFC) Members can learn from Habitat for Health how to sharecrop to grow food to eat, preserve, sell the surplus, accrue time credits and/or work from their local or remote communal home. The H4H GFC will at least offer some hope to recover.

Habitat for Health teaches GFC Members to participate in a collective action network to build dome homes, learn sharecrop market gardening, sell surplus to community buyers, and provide transport services.

GFC Timebank credits are used to provide alternate options to supplement employment income. These credits can be redeemed for community time to barter, create, undertake cooperative garden work, harvest, transport, or swap for other currencies. GFC Volunteer pay-it-forward opportunities include optional ways towork, food, shelter, and transportation.

H4H GFC is in charge of managing contracts for the construction of dome homes and other building projects using Barn-Raising methods. As the community grows, creating dome structures for habitation, storage, hospitality, or entertainment is a form of community work that can be exchanged for time put into the Timebank.

If you already have a job or money to invest or spend, you could also just purchase or finance a number of dome structures to create permaculture businesses and/or eco-eco community rental properties in order to benefit from or increase the resources of the GAIA Fan Club.

In order to transport goods and services to and from marketplaces, the GFC Eco-Eco community can invest in and maintain a fleet of vehicles.

It is a good idea to develop a Permaculture transportation system now that includes incentives to replace outmoded technology and invest in private and public electric vehicle pools by purchasing new cars or trucks or converting used ones to electric or other kinds of mobility.

H4H looks for the least expensive and environmentally responsible building locations, materials, and technology in order to accommodate people with Multiple Chemical Sensitivities (MCS). This is because what is healthy for persons who must live with MCS is typically healthy for everyone else.

Individual power must now be called upon and applied to help work toward sustainable development. With an increase in understanding of relations between economics and nature, individual power grows. In other words - bottom up solutions.

Because what works for people with MCS
usually can benefit everyone else!

INDUSTRIAL COMPLEX

Four keystone priorities essential to life are to feed people, employ them, shelter them, and supply transportation. Yes, governments have organized industrial categories of agriculture, employment, housing and transportation but those management tools need more material input than management output especially when everyone has to deal with food shortage, loss of employment, and housing due in part from events outside management control.

For example, population growth increases demand for goods and services and is a major driving force behind economic development. The result increases pressure on natural systems and resources. While the economy continues to expand, the ecosystem on which it depends does not. Furthermore, there are natural indicators that show damage.
