Wind and solar are growing, perhaps faster in Europe, but in the US, the real growth is natural gas.

As sendler is often pointing out, renewables aren't even keeping up with the growth in demand for electricity, let alone beginning to displace non-renewable generation. You've got to cover the growth before you can even begin to reduce total emissions.
