The National Research Council just reported that the costs of electricity from fossil fuels were $120 billion just on air pollution’s impact on health, not counting the effects of mercury, ecosystem damage, or the climate warming impact of carbon emissions. Natural gas is ‘cheaper’ than coal; ethanol’s hidden costs are similar to coal’s. Cars have hidden costs of $56 billion in damages.
Wind power is one of the greatest renewable ways of producing electricity as no toxic emissions are generated, it does not attach to global warming, and is one of the most obtainable sources of sustainable energy. Also, hypothetically it is a limitless source of energy. In adequately windy
