"Mindless curve-fitting is not science" by professor Kristoffer Rypdal.

Researchers in Bergen have published a very controversial paper  claiming early signs of saturation of the exponential growth of installed wind- and solar energy. If their projections are true these renewables will not take a substantial share of the future energy market. The seminar will discuss methodological flaws in this paper.

Rypdal is  a professor at the Department of Mathematics and Statistics and a very enthusiastic and communicative scientist.
