The visualisation of how each country's energy mix has changed is very surprising, to me at least.
- Solar barely registers anywhere. Look at countries I'd say were synonymous with the Sun like Spain, India and Brazil and it doesn't even get a label.
- Hydo is everywhere
- It's disgusting how much the world still relies on burning coal.
You look at countries like Norway (96% hydro) or Nepal (100% hydro) and compare that to the US (64% fossil fuel) and the UK (~75% fossil fuel) and it's obvious why climate scientists are worried.
Take a look through the list of countries and their energy mix. I was genuinely surprised at the results for most of the countries, and not in a good way.
