Sustainability = Marxist BS. Just UN Agenda 21 grab for our Personal Land Ownership - don’t fall for it!
Dear Mr. Michael Green, sir,
Wood burns, dumb-ox.
There were other reasons behind the shift to largely steel and concrete construction for multistory buildings in high density areas.
Fire was the main one.
Concrete and steel are also among the most durable materials and therefore extremely green. The real issue is the feminization of the building trades which pushes this nonsense.
Leaving out the so-called green advantages, how does wood construction compete with concrete and steel?
How many trees need to be cut down for these “sustainable” woodscapers? The greenie wienies will never go for it.
Almost forget........how big a tent would be needed for termite control?
Ping about my custom steps.
Ignorance is bliss.
Morons are now running government, and begin making inroads into engineering and the sciences. And those will fail as miserably and totally as the government-by-imbeciles is working for us.
How many train wrecks can we tolerate at the same time?
Anyone with google can discover why "skyscrapers" were impossible before iron and steel, from the tower of Babel to the New York skyline.
Something to do with tensile and compressive ultimate strength of materials.
I guess “sustainability” has more to it than just re-cycling? I mean who is going to design a skyscraper to be torn down in any forseeable time-frame?
I stopped at the point where high urban density is somehow sustainable...
Wall off a city and see how sustainable they are.
I would ONLY trust this if we get the wood from China.
Since we can no longer use their premium sheetrock./sarcX10
It can be done, after all redwoods are 200-300 feet tall. However, it would be better to take the cellulose out of wood, which is the biopolymer which makes wood strong, and put it into a substance more durable, like a plastic, and make a building out of that.
Maybe this jerk ought to check out the Great Fire of London, and many similar occurrences.
There are reasons why cities are built of brick, stone, or concrete.
All those people that perished after that wood skyscraper burned as hot as a rocket when the chiminey effect superheated the fire? We call them bumps in the road.
Homes and food for termites.
Besides that high rises are type I buildings and have to be built from incombustible materials and the structure fireproofed to 2, 3, and 4 hour protection!!
