So, Do You Want to learn About Zoning or Insurance?

Both boring topics.  Lets deal zoning—-as this is  part of the problem in the Gulf  coast area of the USA (after climate  change —-or lets say, ‘an Act of God’—-caused record rainfalls).

Did you know that geologists can  determine how much  water the ground can hold? Did you know that how much water the ground can hold depends on the  type of soil, how much there is, bedrock or clay, and how much of the land is covered with an impermeable  covering?

Did you know that God isn’t making any more real estate, and  lots of people choose to live in certain areas, making land much more valuable for development than other areas? Did you know  urban  planners try to  convey this information to developers, and are often disrespected—that developers will then  call lawyers or contact politicians to override planners? Did you know that because of this, the rest of us have to come to the aid of people who  live in flood zones?

Did you know that it’s no mystery  regarding what happened to  some great ancient civilizations, like Egypt, the Mayans, the  Ankor/Khmer  and Naga Cultures?  They didn’t just disappear…but a combination of both over population/disease, and using up  environmental  energy resources caused people to scatter?

We’re not talking contrails here, or even if the planet is warming, but we are sort of addressing the statistical odds of a major weather event happening, and that is no mystery.

currently, in 2017, President Trump has ‘drained the swamp’ and brought all the  people who don’t think the rules mean them—or are fair to THEM—into  the government. They are in key positions to change the rules to make policy that benefits them, not all of the people in the country.  You can have a false consciousness  and  believe that their interests are your interests, but  time and time again, we see this is not so.  We could have single payer health care…or we can keep bailing out  people who  live in communities who believe d the developers over  the planners.
