The world will use 48 percent more energy by 2040, three-quarters of which will come from coal, oil or natural gas, according to projections made Thursday by the U.S. Energy Information Administration (EIA).
The report states that most of the worlds new energy use will come from developing countries, particularly China and India, and most of the 75 percent of that energy will be coal, oil or natural gas. Only a relatively small percentage of the worlds energy will come from wind and solar power despite massive subsidies, contrary to the claims from environmental groups like The Sierra Club.

Billy’s brother’s energy alternatives were big failures also.
Two minutes with a calculator would have told you that.
and Hydroelectric and biomass (i.e. wood burning) probably provides at least another 24%
My solar charging panel for my calculator ain’t workin’. I put a chunk of coal on top of it and still nuthin’. Maybe my little garden wind mill................... :)
Remaining 1% from d.c. hot air?
Here’s where France did something right: 78 percent of their electricity is nuclear.
US is 13 percent nuclear.
So were Jimmy Carter’s.
Jimmy Carter is Billy’s brother.
“Green” policy is the biggest scam perpetrated on humankind. Lefties whine about wanting to redistribute wealth and income more. They’ve been doing it for decades through:
1. massive subsidies that fund one failed project after another
2. tax breaks that ironically end up helping more affluent people than not
3. undue regulatory and fiscal burden on legitimate energy-producing companies, which end up hurting consumers. Again, ironically enough, it’s regressive and impacts the poorest the most
Yeah, redistribution of wealth/income is already happening, lefties. It’s redistributing it from the people to the government. How do you like dem apples? All for some fantasy of conservation and renewability. You want to Occupy something? Occupy DC where the real criminals are.
and Al Gore’s CRAZY UNCLE in the attic.
The inmates have taken over the asylum.
Silly. That's the whole point.
LOL! Stoppin it is my point. That and gettin’ that lamp I can rub and get 3 wishes. :)
