My criticism it's just that He (uncle Jordan) asks people for money on Patreon, despite clearly don't need.
I have no critics related to the money he made by his works and business.

Some aggregate could be a good idea, if not epensive, since aircrete it's very brittle. Maybe some inexpensive vegetable fiber, low in weight to do not mess around with the foam. Maybe rice fiber.

After they get the walls of aircrete domes thay give it a coat of cement with a fabic layer, to reinforce it and avoid erosion of the brittle aircrete.

Maybe people who also work in home could have a small dome office, a small dome just to scape the need of air conditioned cooling large rooms, and since dome's shape itself already save energy fo clime control, it would be a way to reduce energy bills.

Renewable energy pricing

As of 1991,the Luz Corporation's solar-heliostat-thermal power generating facility in California's Mojave Desert,was competitive with average residential consumer electric pricing,at 8-cents/kWh.
The national residential consumer price at the time was 8.3-cents/kWh,with a range of 4.2-cents,to 14-cents.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------
The same year,Photovoltaics were at 41.5-cents/kWh
---------------------------------------------------------------------------
The same year,Wind power was at 9-cents/kWh
By 1995 wind was projected to be around 5-cents/kWh
By 2011,even less.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------
As of 1990,coal-fired production costs were at 5.62-cents/kWh

Energy Efficiency

Between 1992 and 2015,the EPA's Energy Star Program saved consumers $300-billion,and mitigated 2-billion metric tonnes of carbon dioxide.
The money we didn't spend on energy could have paid for 4,347, 2-MW wind generators/year (8496-MW/year.
Over the 23-year span we could have paid for 195.3-GW of capacity.
In the next 32-years before we actually get off fossil fuels,we'd have 467,170-GW of installed power.(albeit intermittent).
------------------------------------------------------------------------
Austin,Texas found that they could save a kWh for $91.00,or build out a kWh for $1,000.00.

Energy Price vs Consumption

as of January,1991,the Institute for International Economics,Washington,DC,reported that a 100% increase in the retail price of gasoline would yield a 10% reduction in consumption.
This is the only direct comparison I've run across since 1973.

Energy Star is among the few things I appreciate about the EPA. All devices that consume grid electricity should clearly state their consumption on the packaging.

Things like cable boxes rarely disclose this info. My apt came with 2 satellite receiver boxes; one with DVR capability, and one that was a receiver only. It was up to me to determine which to activate, and at the time I didn't know DVR was an extra fee, so I activated it despite not opting to use the DVR capability. It draws something like 40 watts at all times, even when "off", which reduces power consumption by something measly like 1 watt. The other box only draws something like 9 watts.

In 1991, gasoline prices were nearly the lowest it had ever been in history. It did nearly double in price around 2012 from the 1991 price. We should be able to determine what affect it had on consumption.

What have you found that supports some good is/has been caused by global warming?
The only thing that comes to mind,is that on a regional basis,there might be a farmer who does better with his/her crop,in any particular season,than they've done before.
They might have to sell off their tractor though,and buy one with a tudor cab with air conditioning,as now it's too uncomfortable to be out in the fields.
And where they were dry land farmers before,they might have to switch to irrigation.
And you might have to sell off all your cattle,because all your stock tanks are dry and you can't afford to import water and feed as is going on in Australia today.But your other 'crop' looks great!
And that's the thing about climate change.By changing a single variable,atmospheric carbon dioxide,you open a big can of worms that you never anticipated or could imagine,nor adapt to.
I'll look and see if there's some other pluses,but right now,nothing else comes to mind.

I think the e.i.a. has histories of data for any time of interest.
For 1991,I have,for New York City,you could buy Regular at $1.12/gallon and Diesel at $1.12.Caracas,Venezuela was 14-cents/gallon.
I remember gas during price wars at 18-cents a gallon as a teen.
The day before Operation Desert Shield it was $0.899/gallon around here.
