U.S. Billion-Dollar Weather and Climate Disasters (2021). https://www.ncdc.noaa.gov/billions/
In 2021 (as of July 9), there have been 8 weather / climate disaster events with losses exceeding $1 billion each to affect the United States. These events included 1 drought event, 2 flooding events, 4 severe storm events, and 1 winter storm event. Overall, these events resulted in the deaths of 331 people and had significant economic effects on the areas impacted.

The GAIA Fan Club vision is to speed up preparation for disaster and recovery. Common essential needs include sourcing food, shelter, opportunity for income and community services.
In the past, top down methods of redistribution of wealth, regardless of the geopolitics, has a common denominator - individual humans being. Today humans have two existential imperatives, personal survival and community collaboration.

Bees are an endangered species. Like all life on Earth, bees are affected by Climate Change and Habitat Destruction. Three top reasons bees are dying faster are due to pesticides, poor nutrition and parasites. Humans are also affected because bees pollinate plants we eat and make honey.
Like bees, humans are also being affected by pesticides, pollution, and plastics. We also have to rebuild our homes and food supply after fire, wind, earthquakes, mudslides, floods, extreme cold and heat storms.
Habitat for Health recovery concepts are based on lower common denominators to rebuild what is lost by individuals, families and communities. In other words H4H designs and manages construction using Bottom Up Resources. The main difference between bottom up and top down resources is the point where time and money enters the economic exchange part of the equation.
Environmental Wellness, Hypersensitivity and Accommodation
Brian Hack's special interest, and current rare skill set, is derived from a diverse education and physical hypersensitivity that helps him identify environmental issues that others may overlook. With due consideration and in some cases experience of what doesn't work, or can be improved, costs may be reduced, effects improved, or both.
Details are available on the Website but that's just where Brian's been, not where he's going or intends to be. Read on for more. Join the GAIA Fan Club and get into the action. Do or do not. There is no try.
I'd like to start in my backyard which happens to be Vancouver Island. The first relevant question asked and first answer is in the Blog. "How much arable land is needed to sustain just 1 human being?"
Since there are significant variables, fuzzy logic, and it is more than 6 years old, I'd ask a different question today: "How many people can be sustained on 2 hectares of land?" As a permaculture designer one efficiency expansion technique is vertical gardening.
Mid Island South and East along the Saanich Peninsula are prime locations for berry cropping, vineyards and other high value market gardens. The weather is mild enough to support a variety fruits and vegetables found in warmer climates and with minimal frost and freezing protection less hardy varieties may also bear fruit.
Opportunities for displaced persons and families who are willing and able to join and participate in Eco-Village type of community organizations will benefit most by joining or starting one up.
Habitat for Health is positioned to startup a prototype Eco-Village to document, source, blueprint and share information on how to move from today's Eco-Eco disaster zones to self-sufficient, self-governing, self-employed sustainable recovery and prosperity alternatives.
The H4H GAIA First Pay it Forward alternatives are underway and instead of competing with existing socioeconomic systems that cull it's no longer useful producers and servants, we are saving or recycling all who want or need hope. Of course opportunities are based on the equality of time and not on the inequality of money.
Early adopters and charter members of the H4H GAIA Fan club are most likely to convert their experience into tangible assets and new skills.
