Through 2022, the home has to defend us against heatwaves, droughts, wildfires, severe rain, and flooding. But our accommodations were simply inadequate. It did not protect them from the record 40.3-degree day and suffocating nights that lasted for weeks. Then we watched on television images of homes that had been damaged by fire and flood.
We knew it would happen, and that such summers would become more often and violent in the coming years.
Are we ready? Is the government developing an overarching unified policy to mitigate such fatal events? Will the current housing stock be rehabilitated in a timely manner? Will the much-needed new homes be able to withstand the next 30 years of global warming? Can they be built in a timely and cost-effective manner?
Simultaneously, housing developments are being grafted upon reluctant communities. Even now, houses are built with massive CO2 emissions and planned for a lifetime of global warming gases sprayed into the air decade after decade. Planning clearance is granted for flats that do not have a facility to store bikes or charge electric vehicles.
Comprehensive and often prescient, this is a manifesto in climate change mitigation and, as if by magic, it will not cost the Exchequer a penny!
