dianavan BS: Why are we still building with wood (125* d) RE: BS: Why are we still building with wood 06 May 07


You're right about that, kendall, and anyone who builds in a bog has no right to complain about mildew. Same goes for those who think they can have the forest for a backyard and not be effected by forest fires.

RE: asphalt roads

Everytime they have to dig up the road to repair water lines, etc., the road has to be repaired. My daughter mentioned that in Denmark, the roads are built with paving stones. When repairs are done they simply remove the stones, set them aside and replace them when finished.

I think the biggest problem in N.A. is our 'disposable' mindset coupled with the concept of short term gain. Nobody wants to consider the long term or invest the money to insure sustainability. They would rather put out fires as the need arises. I see this in every aspect of our social structure. In the long term its a waste of human resources as well.
