* | Wind | Average Earthling | IEA 2011 - Statistics & Balances | Global: All (2009) | 1.3575 | % proportion (0 - 100) | We first subtracted â€˜other sourcesâ€™ and 'tide' from the total production of electricity so that our proportions would combine to equal 100. Next, we calculated the proportion of electricity produced from this fuel. |

Wind | Average Earthling | U.S. Energy Information Administration 2010 - International Energy Statistics | Global: All () | 1.38337 | % proportion (0 - 100) | We calculated this value by dividing the world's total electricity net generation (billion kilowatthours) in 2009 by the world's wind electricity net generation (billion kilowatthours) in 2009. We then converted the calculation to a percent. | |

* | Wood and other biomass | Average American | EIA 2011- Electric Power Annual 2010 | US: All (2010) | 1.359714 | % proportion (0 - 100) | This value was calculated by dividing the net generation (thousand megawatthours) of this fuel type by the net generation (thousand megawatthours) of all energy sources and then converting that number into a percent. This proportion includes "wood and wood derived fuels" (paper pellets, railroad ties, utility poles, wood chips, bark, wood waste solids, red liquor, sludge wood, spent sulfite liquor, and other wood-based liquids, and black liquor) and "other biomass" (Biogenic municipal solid waste, landfill gas, sludge waste, agricultural byproducts, other biomass solids, other biomass liquids, digester gases, methane, and other biomass gases). |
