Top 10 Most Read Blog Posts of All Time

This has been a record-breaking year for the Energy Institute at Haas Blog as readership has continued to grow. We’re proud that so many of you have come back week after week.

We publish fresh, timely content to start each week, but in many cases the content stays relevant for years. This year a New York Times column by Eduardo Porter referenced a 2013 post by Catherine and pushed it to #1 in our rankings.

We’re looking forward to engaging with you even more in 2017. Many nations are committing to tackle climate change like never before. Meanwhile, we face unprecedented uncertainty and potential reversals in US energy and climate policy. Thoughtful, independent economic research and analysis will be more important than ever. Through the Energy Institute at Haas Blog we strive to bring that kind of insight directly to practitioners and researchers like you.

Please keep spreading the word through social media and old-fashioned in-person discussions. New followers can sign up to receive the blog through our home page. Thanks to all of you for helping to make this blog a success.

And now, here’s the countdown of all-time top 10 Energy Institute blog posts.
