Light writing. Galantier’s whiteboard. Too big for Twitter, too trivial for everywhere.

What happens when a significant part of the housing stock is destroyed? Doesn’t matter if it’s fire, or flood, or wind.

Rent goes up.

One gets a roommate, or six. With luck, one chooses who one lives with, rather than having someone thrust into your private space. Or rather than being thrust into someone else’s space.

If you’re truly lucky, there’s a door one can close. But that doesn’t always work out. Especially when the fire, or flood, or wind was bad.

This happens everywhere, and is happening all over this planet, right now.

It will keep happening, because our climate is becoming ever more fragile.
