Green energy ‘stagnates’ as fossil fuels dominate

A new study says that the world is using more fossil fuels than ever as the transition to green energy stalls.

The Renewables 2022 Global Status Report says the share of wind and solar in the global energy mix has risen minimally in the last decade.

While renewables boomed in the electricity sector last year, they didn’t meet the overall rise in demand.

In transport, which accounts for a third of energy, renewables provided less than 4%.

"The share of renewable energy has moved in the last decade from 10.6% to 11.7%, but fossil fuels, all coal and gas have moved from 80.1% to 79.6%. So, it’s stagnating," said Rana Adib, the executive director of REN21.

"And since the energy demand is rising, this actually means that we are consuming more fossil fuels than ever."

Did this actually come as a surprise to Matt McGrath? If so, he is a bigger idiot than I thought!

He says that the transition to green energy has stalled. In fact it has never actually got going.
