520    Have we built our way to ruin? Is your desire for that 
       beach house or cabin in the woods part of the 
       environmental crisis? Do you really need a bigger home? 
       Why don't multiple generations still live under one roof? 
       In The Housing Bomb, leading environmental researchers M. 
       Nils Peterson, Tarla Rai Peterson, and Jianguo Liu sound 
       the alarm, explaining how and why our growing addiction to
       houses has taken the humble American dream and twisted it 
       into an environmental and societal nightmare. Without 
       realizing how much a contemporary home already contributes
       to environmental destruction, most of us want bigger and 
       bigger houses and dream of the day when we own not just 
       one dwelling but at least the two our neighbor does. We 
       push our children to "get out on their own" long before 
       they need to, creating a second household where previously
       one existed. We pave and build, demolishing habitat needed
       by threatened and endangered species, adding to the 
       mounting burden of global climate change, and sucking away
       resources much better applied to pressing societal needs. 
       "Reduce, reuse, recycle" is seldom evoked in the housing 
       world, where economists predict financial disasters when 
       "new housing starts" decline and the idea of renovating 
       inner city residences is regarded as merely a good cause. 
       Presenting irrefutable evidence, this book cries out for 
       America and the world to intervene by making simple 
       changes in our household energy and water usage and by 
       supporting municipal, state, national, and international 
       policies to counter this devastation and overuse of 
       resources. It offers a way out of the mess we are creating
       and envisions a future where we all live comfortable, 
       nondestructive lives. The "housing bomb" is ticking, and 
       our choice is clear--change our approach or feel the 
       blast.
