57. Denmark and wind
Denmark supplies up to 20% of its electricity form wind. Yet, this beacon of renewable energy hasn't shut down a fossil fuel plant, or made any reduction in Co2 emissions. The problem with renewables is what you decide to base-load them with when the wind isn't blowing or the sun isn't shining. Because Denmark base-loads with natural gas they won't be able to reduce Co2 emissions. That is why we should be base-loading with nuclear. It's a viable, pragmatic approach.
