    There have been rumblings about pure environmentalists being against hydro and solar panels destroying the desert and wind turbines "problems".

    Somehow this made me check out the Greenpeace website, which just today (as we are discussing coal in another thread) posted an article on coal:

    It refers to this Harvard study:
    Full cost accounting for the life cycle of coal - Epstein - 2011 - Annals of the New York Academy of Sciences - Wiley Online Library
