I was thinking today, because it's Tuesday and I have to limit this sort of thing to one day a week, about how quickly summers are heating up in many parts of the world. Death Valley, California hit its own night-time temperature record yesterday of 41.7C. Most of my area has been sweltering in heat and drought. A couple years ago it I remember how bad it was in the Moscow region, and horrible fires joined the mix. Ditto in your part of the world?
Can Lithops help us adapt??
What would a house inspired by Lithops/Mesembs be like? I had a chin wag with some friends the other day about it, and we came up with a few ideas:
1. Instead of flimsy windows and flimsier walls, cubed translucent walls filled with photosynthetic gel. Could that work?? It could be like adobe, but allow light in and make food/energy as well....
3. Lovely solar panels and attractive skylights, of course, in amazing designs and colors, like the Lithops!
4. Water storage supreme. Saving water when heavy rains fall, catching dew, etc... What do you think??
