Loving thy neighbors

If it were expected that soon a neighbor apartment will suffer from construction defects, such as leakage from pipes, intermittent electricity supply, tiles cracking, walls shaking, etc..

Would caring neighbors assist them by showing them ways to be minimally affected by these defects, and how to live in such conditions?

How about inviting them to our place until another suitable permanent place is found?

Now, if some places on earth are expected to be very badly affected by global warming (or ice-age?? whatever..), shouldn't people move to better locations a wiser option than stubbornly sticking around?

Anyway, does anybody really owns any piece of land?

In the report, UN: Poor Need $86 Billion in Climate Aid,
"Half the cost, $44 billion, would go for "climate-proofing" developing nations' infrastructure while $40 billion would help the poor adapt how the live to cope with climate-related risks, says the panel's report. The other $2 billion would go to strengthening responses to natural disasters."

Humans usually adapt, but not always. The nomads way becomes applicable if a living environment would become too unsuitable for living.
