Green Stats: 2.2

2.2 -- the percent of worldwide power generated by renewable energy in 2005. Compare that to...

15.2 -- the percent generated by nuclear power, up from 3.3% in 1973. And the biggest energy producer on the list?

40.3 -- the percent of the world's energy that comes from coal, which stands to stomp on the little steps we take to go green, and costs us, big time, in more ways than one.
