10 Amazing Facts About Renewable Energy

I do a fair bit of bloggging about renewable energy, but recently the people at Greenpeace did a quick summary called 10 Amazing Facts You Probably Didn't Know About Renewable Energy.

It included:
- in 2009, Europe shut down more coal, fuel oil and nuclear power than it built.
- In just 5 years, Portugal leapt from 15% to 45% renewables.
- Globally, subsidies go to fossil fuels over renewable energy by 12:1.
- Iceland's power supply is over 80% geothermal and hydro.

You can find the full list (and links) here.
