Wind and Solar: The Past or the Future

Trained as a quantitative economist, Kenneth Haapala has created and analyzed a diverse array of numerical models. For example, in 1977 he reported how government energy models used to predict the world would run out of oil and the U.S. out of natural gas by the end of the twentieth century were inappropriate for the task, and why. That was his last Federal government contract. For more than two years, Haapala has been executive vice president of the Science and Environmental Policy Project (SEPP) and writes the “This Week” column of The Week That Was (TWTW), the bulletin of SEPP. Haapala was a contributor to the first two Climate Change Reconsidered reports of the Nongovernmental International Panel on Climate Change and twice has been elected president of the Philosophical Society of Washington—the oldest science society of that city.
