Environmental Impacts All benefits have costs

All energy production has environmental impacts. Fossil fuels and nuclear produce more solid, liquid and gaseous wastes, while renewables face challenges of land and water use, visual and noise pollution. Making energy cleaner is usually more expensive, and these costs are passed along to the consumer. A successful energy future will depend on managing environmental impacts while keeping energy affordable.
