Clean energy ain't happening anytime soon -- it's too pie in the sky.

Wind farms are already up and running around the country, with more being built every month. Last year, 42 percent of new generating capacity in the U.S. came from wind power.

Overall, the latest statistics from the U.S. Department of Energy indicate that renewable energy already accounts for about 12 percent of U.S. energy production.
