About the Author
John Constable is the Director of the Renewable Energy Foundation, an independent charity that publishes data and analysis on the energy sector. He was educated in the humanities, reading English at Magdalene College, Cambridge, and subsequently taking his PhD there in 1993. He has since taught at both Kyoto University, Japan, and at Cambridge, where, until 2005, he was a Leverhulme Research Fellow and Senior Research Fellow of Magdalene. In that field he is best known as the leading authority on the twentieth-century philosopher of language and aesthetics, I. A. Richards, whose works 1919-1938 he edited in a ten-volume landmark edition, published in 2001. He is also the co-discoverer, with his colleague the Japanese particle physicist and economist Professor Hideaki Aoyama, of the mathematical distinction between verse and prose in English. Dr Constable has been working in energy policy since 2004 and is known for his data-grounded view that current policy targets for renewables are infeasible, unaffordable, and almost certainly counterproductive.
