I wish the stink bug population would collapse in my house. Would really like to see mosquitos go too. Got no use for pantry moths either.

Careful what you wish for! If you house burns down (heaven forfend) you'd have no-one to blame but yourself.

Perhaps the best solution is to build a bug-proof house to move into.

That's the idea; with all that building a house hanging off a cliff talk I"m on about. Still not sold on the domular form, but then what do I know about dome living?

I'm looking for someone in the tiny house movement that will do some estimating, so the numbers don't come from a biased source me.

Three sets of numbers for some given area/volume and construction material (wood/metal/concrete)
Conventional construction
Traditional dome construction
Undisclosed dome construction
I think the numbers would prove out, but there is no way to convey the spiritual/psychological differences.

Post in that thread again and I'll make an offer that might help.

So - we are losing the base of the food chain - and you joke. We are losing the pollinators - and you yawn.

If it affect rain, food production (agriculture), it can kill people, specially in poor countries where food it's short.

So- we have a larger number of people dying of cold related problems every year than heat - and the sky is falling. Food production per capita is at historic highs - and we're on the brink of collapse.

... population increases and mortality decreases. The burden of proof falls on those proclaiming calamity despite things never being better.

Heat is the engine that drives the air flow, and the water flow - that affects EVERY THING.
