Re: Maintaining small house & living in the lower mountains questions

Hey Axa, I had already posted that video on post #20, do keep up

Here is one example of a village in danger. If those rocks fall, the whole village will be buried. No more new construction is allowed but people still live there




Many big boulders hanging above the village. Anchoring just this one boulder cost almost 1million!



Experts want to build a protection dam but the attitude of some in the community-

"You make an elephant out of every mosquito"
"Stones have fallen for centuries, we don't need a geologist to tell us that"


Village president-
"Last 40 years no one died but every year 2 dozen die in swimming pool accidents, should we close down all swimming pools?"

I can't make my mind if they are very stupid backward people or really smart

EDIT- Due to permafrost thawing /climate change I think the equation is a bit more complicated and more dangerous than before and will only get worse!
