ENVIRONMENTAL IMPACTS, EFFICIENCY, AND COST OF ENERGY SUPPLY AND END USE. VOLUME 1

This report presents tabular, footnoted, and referenced data quantifying the broad range of energy-related environmental impacts on land, water, air, solid waste, and occupational health. Using the data bank, it is possible to aggregate the environmental impacts of a wide variety of fossil fuel 'trajectories' traced from the end use of a fuel to its extraction or vice versa. This makes it possible to estimate environmental impacts for any number of scenarios related to energy consumption patterns envisioned for the next 10 to 20 years. Thirty environmental impact tables are contained in this report. Twelve of these are devoted to coal supply, twelve to oil supply, one to natural gas supply, four to energy end uses, and one to the electric power plant activity of energy supply. Each entry in these tables is footnoted and referenced.
