Redesigning our infrastructure to address various public health emergencies can lessen the damage of the climate crisis while protecting us from the worst. Updating our infrastructure is essential as it would create a massive jobs program, introduce land reform, combat soil erosion, hydraulic cycle disruption, lower community carbon footprints and expand the role of local academic leadership conducting research in various fields... if we exercise Tactical Guerilla Gardening: sidewalks, front yards, vacant lots, swales, rooftops, storefronts, shopping centers, parks ALL available space and ALL willing bodies must be directed towards localizing agricultural production through techniques in permaculture as a shield from the coming threat of a warming world and as a means of providing resources to those in need. The formation of agriculturally independent cities will diversify trade and produce community wealth. Many residences do not need to use additional water to grow their own food if they install grey-water irrigation systems which use shower/laundry water to irrigate crops(must use plant-based soaps to protect soil from chemicals). If we redesign our environments to be resource abundant through localized redesign and clean energy we can advance our standard of living while fully adapting to the various threats of increasingly hostile ecological and economic systems.
