How did I become involved? I stood by and watched Doug Seiter as he slapped the baby green building industry on the butt the day it was born and I heard its first cries. I was green before there was an industry. I then learned all of the building science that I could from Joe Lstiburek, Betsy Pettit and John Tooley and put the two bodies of knowledge together.
