37. Since, at 440 reactors nuclear only supplied about 2% of global final energy supply...

...that sounds about right if you don't consider the future needs of the developing global population.



The economics of centralized generation drive inefficiency and should we pursue that solution to climate change, future demand would almost certainly far exceed the demand of a comfortable society built on distributed renewables. Why, you ask? Because, distributed renewables closely link the production and consumption of energy in a way that promotes the full value of striving for efficiency.
