Even though President Barack Obama pledged to work around Congress should it fail to adequately address climate change, the rest of the world has moved significantly to increase its reliance on alternative energies like wind and solar.

Global energy generated by wind grew by about 20 percent during 2012, raising the world’s total installed capacity to 282 gigawatts (GW). Meanwhile, solar energy reached 100GW for the first time ever, representing a 50 percent jump in just two years.
