IT IS TIME TO HAVE A CONVERSATION ABOUT MOTHER

WHEN CONFRONTING THE WRATH OF EXTREME WEATHER

It Is Time For Serious Dialogue With Government, Industry And Insurance Providers


The Architectural Sciences Are Quite Resolute - Round Structures Deflect Projectiles Better Than Flat Walled Buildings & Homes Raised Ten Feet Above Ground Level Will Survive Most Floods.


In 1945, Germany Patented The Material Design To Construct Bricks At 1/2 The Weight; But, Maintaining The Tensile Strength Of Traditional Construction Blocks. In 1990, The US Considered These Designs When Considering Materials To Survive Termites In Building Pre-Fab Cities In Mexico. The Ambassador To Mexico Came To Canada To Meet With Industry Experts About Providing Resources For Such Improved Design Implementations.


Hence, Why Are The Monolithic - Geodesic - Dome Homes Not More Common Throughout Those Regions That Are So Often Inundated By Hurricanes, Tornadoes, And, Floods : Or, Even Fire Events?


The Most Common Reference Would Direct Our Attention To Lobby Groups Who Advocate For The Traditional Box Homes And Manufactured Habitats.


Certainly, The Interior Structures Of Dome Homes Incorporate Lumber - But - At A Considerably Diminished Volume.


But, Considering Manufacturing, Maintenance, And, Replacement Costs - Monolithic Homes Provide A More Sound Business Sense Than The Lumbered Traditional Homes - Which Fly Apart With Devastating Force & Whose Roofs Disassemble Into Fractured Projectiles.


It Would Be A Wise Choice Of Government To Sponsor Public Hearings On These Events Of Loss - The Homes And The Personal Effects - That Tear Apart Hearts And Bank Accounts.
