We're looking forward to the American Society of Heating, Refrigerating and Air-Conditioning Engineers' public session on mold to be held during the society's winter meeting in Chicago. The subject of mold may appear relatively straightforward to engineers - it is both preventable and correctable - but the subject holds immeasurable fascination for the public. Listen to home improvement talk shows on the radio and you're sure to hear questions that reveal a high level of anxiety about mold.
Session chair Charles Culp, Ph.D., P.E., of Texas A & M University, says that "sensationalism and bias dominate mold discussion," and that is certainly true. Television news programs are giving mold the "killer bees" treatment: it's coming; you can't stop it; we're doomed.
