Kenneth Green

Ph.D. Environmental Science and Engineering

Kenneth P. Green, D.Env. has studied and critiqued public policies and regulations involving environment, health, and safety for over 25 years. He has authored over 800 essays and articles on public policy, published by think tanks, major newspapers, and technical and trade journals in North America. A full listing of his works can be accessed through his website,

Dr. Green holds a doctoral degree in environmental science and engineering from UCLA, a master’s degree in molecular genetics from San Diego State University, and a bachelor's degree in general biology from UCLA.

Dr. Green’s policy analysis has centered on evaluating the pros and cons of government management of environmental, health, and safety risk. More often than not, his research has shown that governments are poor managers of risk, promulgating policies that often do more harm than good both socially and individually, are wasteful of limited regulatory resources, often benefit special interests (in government and industry) at the expense of the general public, and are almost universally violative of individual rights and personal autonomy.  Dr. Green has also focused on government’s misuse of probabilistic risk models in the defining and regulating of EHS risks, ranging from air pollution to chemical exposure, to climate change, and most recently, to biological threats such as COVID-19. His most recent book, The Plague of Models: How Computer Modeling Corrupted Environmental, Health, and Safety Regulations, was described in one review as a “devastating attack on the regulatory state."

Dr. Green has appeared frequently in major media and has testified before legislative bodies in both the United States and Canada.
