David ArchibaldAuthor, Twilight of Abundance
David Archibald is a Perth-based scientist working in the fields of oil exploration, medical research, climate science, and energy. A true polymath, his achievements include pioneering the study of how climate change is linked to the solar cycle. Through his work both in oil exploration, and as a stockbroker in Sydney, he has developed an intricate understanding of how climate, energy, and the economy interact. Archibald uses this knowledge to make predictions about how the forces already in motion in the global economy and climate will affect the future prosperity and security of the world. In the past, Archibald conducted oil explorations for Exxon, and he is currently a visiting fellow at the Institute of World Politics in Washington, D.C., where he teaches a course in Strategic Energy Policy.
