from this amazing site

where you can see a similar graphic for world energy needs met by offshore windpower alone.

If you read far enough down you will learn that the author favors "maximizing of diversity of clean energy technologies and of points of generation." Cogently put!

Keep reading down on the landartgenerator site and you will encounter some truly visionary stuff -- what Ferry calls "pragmatic architecture" -- works of beauty and grace that also generate clean energy.

Not about EV's, but not to be missed!
