decades, to my surprise, I have found myself developing what I
can only call a worldview. It emerges most clearly, perhaps, in
the millennium essay I wrote for Chatham
House, called Running
The Planet. I explored its energy aspects in my Melchett
Medal lecture Energy
21: Making The World Work.
I joined Chatham
House as an associate fellow in 1991. My CH colleagues pointed out that 2016 was therefore my 25th anniversary at CH. On 19 September 2016
they organlzed a celebration for me, at which I gave a presentation I called ´House of Stories´. It surveys my time at CH, comments on my worldview and
concludes with a foretaste of what I hope will be my next book.
You can share a worldview only
through language. The traditional language of energy policy is
comprehensively misleading. My Style
Guide for energy policy attempts to rectify its shortcomings.
