Comments Off on Obama finally admits climate change is a public health issue

When talking about climate change, the causes and environmental impacts typically take center stage. The crucial piece missing from the conversation on a political level is the human toll—until now.

Onshore Wind Power is Cheapest Source of Energy Says EU Report

Comments Off on Onshore Wind Power is Cheapest Source of Energy Says EU Report

A report prepared for the European Commission has found that onshore wind power provides the cheapest source of energy once external factors such as air quality, health impacts and expenditure, and the costs of climate change are taken into consideration. The report’s authors found that onshore wind costs around $133 per MW/h to produce, whereas gas and coal cost up to $208 and $295 per MW/h each. However, continuing a controversy that shadowed the Commission last year, extracts from the report have already been published that fail to include the external costs, which is where many of the subsidies to coal, gas and nuclear are made.
