The "Why" in Green Building
This site excels in the "how" of green Building techniques, but it appears to me that when things move towards explaining the "why" discussions seem to move onto much shakier ground. Especially if the economic arguments don't seem to add up, rationalizations veer towards more general "It's the right thing to do" or "I want to be part of the solution" type responses.
I'm not discounting the value of these type of reasons but I'd be interested in hearing some clear thinking around the subject of doing projects that can only be justified as educational or furthering energy technologies which may someday become mainstream. In a field that relies on quite a bit of hard science, when does it makes sense, or is it fair, to simply abandon it when the data goes against one's wish to build in a certain way?
