From Tornado Disaster to Murder

Recent headlines concern the 24 people who died in the large tornado in More, Oklahoma.  Our prayers exend to their family and friends. Insurance and legal issues may arise from this disaster, but quite frankly it appears only nature is at fault and that entity enjoys immunity from prosecution no matter how outrageous the crime.

Other recent news tends to support the proposition that Nichole Cable, the 15-year-old girl found dead in woods north of Bangor, Maine apparently knew the man charged with killing her. It appears that Kyle Dube, 20, of Orono, had been Facebook friends with Nichole Cable, for a couple of months.  Nichole had apparently made plans to see him the weekend that she disappeared according to Nicole's friend, Tyler-Ann Harris, 16. Dube had worked for The Getchell Agency, an organization that cares for people with disabilities.

Dube is charged with Nichole's murder.  Dube was already in jail for fleeing police on a motorcycle. He is being defended by attorney, Stephen Smith.

Dube is to be considered innocent unless otherwise proven in a court of law.

Maybe time to start building subdivisions of Tornado proof Earth Homes in these areas as the storms are going to become more frequent and intense. According to Climate Change Scientists.
Earth Homes are environmentally friendly, maintain an average temp of 70 degrees, and are low maintenance. NO asphalt shingles to replace, NO siding to replace…NO wood used in the home’s shell saving forests, and the carbon footprint to create and transport the product to the site.
There is no way a Tornado is going to knock down the only exposed 8”-10” reinforced concrete wall, and the only wall needing insulation. Nor will it tear off the pre-cast, reinforced concrete cap, with 4’-0” of earth over it.
When you build one Earth Home here or there…it is expensive. But a subdivision can cut costs as much as 50% on the concrete that makes up most all of the home’s shell.

I worked at a manufacturing plant in the mid 70’s that was hit by a Tornado. In my seasonal trade many would take such jobs during the slow winter-early spring months. Being I had already been involved with the concrete trade through a neighbor as a laborer, while digging out people that a cinderblock wall fell on, I though, “That wall would have never fell down if it had been reinforced concrete.”

I agree with V.G. Why not start building tornado resistant homes and buildings in the midwest?

Anon...Energy Corps will fight the building of Earth Home subdivisions tooth and nail since they have the capacity to be "Off the Grid". And subdivisions can act as a power generating plant themselves at night, creating cheep renewable energy for others, reducing their profits
