An article on the Passivhaus standard for Chinese readers

There is a Chinese translation of the New York Times article on the Passivhaus standard ("The Passive House: Sealed for Freshness") posted on the web: Chinese version of Passivhaus article.

Interestingly, if you perform a back translation of the Chinese (back into English), "pretty good house" becomes "excellence in housing" and "Musings of an Energy Nerd" becomes "crazy energy thinking." That sounds about right.
