86% Of The World's Energy Use Is Produce By Carbon-Based Fuels

From "Four Dirty Secrets about Clean Energy" by Alex Epstein:
Clean energy advocates want to force us to use solar, wind, and biofuels, even though there is no evidence these can power modern civilization.
86% of the world’s energy--the energy we use to make food, clothing, shelter, medical care, and everything else our livelihoods depend on--is produced by carbon-based fuels (coal, oil, natural gas). 6% is produced by hydroelectric power. 6% is produced by nuclear power. Thus, 98% of the world’s power generation is regarded as unacceptable by environmentalists. All of 2%--an expensive 2%--is produced by solar, wind, and biofuels.
