Home cannot be imperiled by homes.

We are in an existential moment and we need to do everything we can to be certain that this planet remains habitable. The earth is our most basic Home. Construction of human-built homes should be done in a way that ensures they are safe and environmentally sound. I don’t think permitting builders to save money is a good counter-argument to this imperative.
