Remember, when they say “renewable” what it really means is:
“Their trick is to hide behind the statement that close to 14 per cent of the world’s energy is renewable, with the implication that this is wind and solar. In fact the vast majority — three quarters — is biomass (mainly wood), and a very large part of that is ‘traditional biomass’; sticks and logs and dung burned by the poor in their homes to cook with. Those people need that energy, but they pay a big price in health problems caused by smoke inhalation.
…world energy demand has been growing at about 2 per cent a year for nearly 40 years.”
The items circled in red do not produce CO2.
FYI: 2017 day 130 is over 500,000 sq km higher than 2016.

The AGW cult has been making outrageously bad predictions of doom for a long, long time.
Nearly 40 years ago, a landmark paper was published in the prestigious scientific journal Nature providing a dapper rubric for the modern human-caused climate disaster papers to follow.
The Mercer paper also states that the expected temperature increase due to the doubling of CO2 concentrations would, according to climate models, yield a temperature change of +10°C for the region. This sweltering warmth could, according to advocates of human-caused climate alarm, cause a “rapid deglaciation” of the West Antarctica ice sheet that would, in turn, lead to sea level rise by about 5 meters within 50 years (2028).
As will be illustrated below, the temperatures for Antarctica as a whole have not risen since 1979.

Lets say its May 5th 2017 11am in Germany and there is about 59GW of demand to keep the country functioning and you are a greenie looking forward to a day when there is no more nuclear or CO2 producing power plants..
Ooops. 0.17GW from solar. 3.37GW from wind.
7.7GW from nuclear.
42GW from CO2 producing power plants (gas, coal, biomass, oil)
Day 126. Arctic 6th lowest. Higher than 2016, 2006, 2015, 2004 and 2014.
650,000 sq km below mean … or 4.8%.
