Lightening: Protecting Your Family and Home (Summer 2000)

Packing up to 100 million volts of electricity and a force comparable to that of a small nuclear reactor, lightning has the power to rip through roofs, explode walls of brick and concrete, and ignite deadly fires.

NAHB Studies Disaster Resistant Housing (Spring 2000)

Each year natural disasters wreak havoc on families and communities across the U.S., disrupting businesses and destroying lives. Natural disasters teach us a great deal, but the cost of the lesson often comes at an incredibly dear price.

What You Can't See Could Cost You (Spring 1999)

By Dave Wann

By Duane Elgin

How grown up do you think humanity is? When you look at human behavior around the world and then imagine our species as one individual, how old would that person be? A toddler? A teenager? A young adult? An elder?

By Jerry T. Estruth

The leaders of our cities are struggling to build transportation systems and to create communities that are livable and provide an environment friendly to people and animals.

Plan B 3.0: Mobilizing to Save Civilization (2009)
By Lester Brown

In this updated edition of the landmark Plan B, Lester Brown outlines a survival strategy for our early twenty-first-century civilization. The scale and complexity of issues facing our fast-forward world have no precedent. With Plan A, business as usual, we have neglected these issues.
