Nuclear power is still triple wind and solar power in 2013, because megawatts and megawatt hours are different

I have a comment spammer who is copying and pasting some lies about solar, wind and nuclear energy.

He [nowforthetruth] claims that wind and solar power already have huge power generation.

World Nuclear power is still triple the power generated from wind and solar.

World wind power was about 519 TWh (terawatt hours in 2012)

World wide Solar power produced 110 TWh in 2013

Germany had a one month record for solar power generation in July 2013 of 5.1 TWh.

For the OECD which includes almost all developed countries the electricity generation for 2013 up to October, 2013 was as follows



His lies were:

Nowforthetruth says the following lie - Germany is hugely successful with Wind and Solar Energy, and is producing the energy-equivalent of 40 nuclear power plants with Wind and Solar Energy alone.

Germany has 9 operational reactors and in 2013 they were still generating more power than all of Germany wind and solar power and its geothermal and biofuel.




Nowforthetruth says the following lie - The U.S. is hugely successful with Wind and Solar Energy, and is producing the energy equivalent of SIXTY nuclear power plants with Wind and Solar Energy alone.


The US Energy information administration has a breakdown of all US renewables.

Not the large contribution from geothermal, ethanol and biomass
