A new report from the National Research Council examines and, when possible, estimates "hidden" costs of energy production and use -- such as the damage air pollution imposes on human health -- that are not reflected in market prices of coal, oil, other energy sources, or the electricity and gasoline produced from them. The report estimates dollar values for several major components of these costs. The damages the committee was able to quantify were an estimated $120 billion in the U.S. in...

By George Israel Environmental activists seem to be having difficulty explaining why they're waging war on affordable energy and economic development in Georgia. They haven't explained to the people of southwest Georgia why they blocked construction of a coal-fired power plant there - a plant that would have brought $2 billion and 125 high-paying jobs to one of the poorest counties in the state. They haven't explained to homeowners across Georgia why they will be forced to swallow...

This places geothermal energy above sporadic wind and solar energy, which tends to have a capacity factor of only 20-35%; geothermal capacity is more than 70%. Although global energy use from geothermal sources today only amounts to less than 1%, geothermal projects now exist in around 20...
