I'll be flying out to Detroit for the ACI National Home Performance Conference next Monday, but before get to Detroit and that great conference, I thought I'd share one more special moment from Energy Out West.
On Thursday afternoon last week, just after lunch, John Tooley, Anthony Cox, and Joseph Lstiburek sat at a table together in front of the participants at Energy Out West talking about the future. (Thanks, Tiger Adolf for the photo.) When you see him, ask Anthony about his new wrist watch! Here is a sampling of comments. I'll let you connect the statement with the speaker.
Solar is dead. Nobody trusts it anymore.
There are some cool new gadgets out there.
The future looks good because of scientific breakthroughs happening right now.
Cellulose is the future.
Efficiency wins, efficiency wins, efficiency wins!
Here is that special moment I mentioned above: John Tooley says to Joe Lstiburek, I agree with about 80% of what you said. But with some things, you are full of %$$##@#@!.
But that's not the actual special moment. That happened just after John spoke, when Joe reached out to John and they hugged. Not an "A-Frame" semi hug, but the real thing. The kind that sounds better in Spanish—an embrasso. I realized then that these three great men in our industry truly love and respect one another, despite their differences. That made me feel very good.
