My thoughts until: http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/business-40198567

More than half of our energy was produced by renewables last year (I think that cites a specific date - but the level was about 52% for the whole of last year overall).

I think they import the wood pellets from the US or Canada, and they don't take account of the loss of agricultural land that is being filled with solar panels. They don't take account of the manufacturing of the panels and appliances either.

They're probably made in China so that would be difficult. But yeah.
A lot of it comes from offshore wind turbines which can have birds fly into them while they're spinning and probably effect the sealife through the rusting and breaking of those turbines.
