Please join Energy vs. Climate and the Payne Institute for Public Policy at the Colorado School of Mines as we welcome Ken Caldeira, Gates Ventures, presenting a webinar titled What Can We Know About Energy Futures? on Thursday, April 22, 2021 from 11:00am – 12:00pm (MT).

Climate and energy debates rest on predictions. How many years left to save the planet? How cheap will solar power get? We dive into the dirty world of making such projections. What’s the difference between climate models and energy system models? What do past forecasts tell us about the accuracy of these models? Hint: there’s no shortage of overconfidence.
