Notwithstanding the $billions in subsidies directed to wind and solar, their joint contribution to energy demand amounts to little more than a rounding error.
Oil and gas still account for more than 80% of world energy demand and talk about an ‘inevitable transition’ to an all wind and sun powered future, remains just that.
Energy matters, and what truly matters is that it’s available all day, every day, irrespective of the weather. Which is precisely why wind and solar will never amount to meaningful power sources.
Here’s a few numbers from the team at Jo Nova explaining why.
After 26 COP meetings we are a Fossil Fueled World: Coal, oil gas give us 80% of the energy on Earth

This is what Decarbonization Failure looks like:
After three decades of effort, twenty-six glorious international COP meetings, six IPCC reports, and the installation of around 400,000 wind turbines, the total energy supplied in the big renewable energy transition still amounts to about 5% of total energy production.
The artificial Global Green energy transition is but a decoration on the energy cake. Twenty five thousand commercial planes aren’t electric. 6,225 bulk carriers are not powered by solar panels. And 260 smelters are molten hot and none of them work on wind turbines.
While the media green junkies tell how inevitable the renewable energy transition is, the wave we ride is the massive increase in the use of coal, oil and gas.
And it’s still growing.
There were 341,000 wind turbines in 2017 https://www.cnbc.com/2017/09/08/there-are-over-341000-wind-turbines-on-the-planet-why-they-matter.html
