Abstract

This chapter reviews the predominant penalties of energy use, primarily in terms of the major causes for concern (climate change, air pollution, accident risk, etc.). It focuses mainly on the environmental and health impacts of fossil and nuclear fuels; those of hydroelectricity, wind power and the other renewable energy sources are also briefly mentioned.
