I was getting ready for my big presentation of the year for an annual temperature change summit. This summit is hosted by the top leaders in environmental issues and my presentation features recent statistics as compiled by researchers from award-winning facilities. Most of the research is numbers focused on the temperature changes in extreme to moderate environments. I was gleeful to deliver this material to a group of my peers. However on the morning of my presentation it was said to be one of the warmest afternoons that week. This piece of information will come into play later in the story but as we were setting up the presentation, I noticed that the room was uncomfortably warm. This was in the early morning. I spoke with the conference room team to address the air temperature plus the room temperature control wasn’t working for me. The manager needed to find his boss in order to unlock the temperature control. When both of us came back to check on the room, it was still so warm in there. All of us were 30 minutes away from the large presentation. As people entered the room, there was some fidgeting plus I could clearly see some uncomfortable looks. With only more than four minutes until the start of the presentation, the HVAC mechanic briefed me on the not so good situation. The entire conference center heating and cooling plan had experienced a power surge plus it could not be brought back online in time for the presentation. All of us made the best of it while we were presenting information on the detriments of temperature change and how hot just one place can get.
