The Hidden Costs of Energy: National Academy of Sciences Study
On October 20, 2009, the National Academy of Sciences (NAS) issued an important study on the “Hidden Costs of Energy: Unpriced Consequences of Energy Production and Use”. Such hidden costs, sometimes called “externalities,” include such things as lung damage, asthma and premature deaths from air pollution; birth defects from mercury fallout; damage to buildings, timber harvests and ecosystem services from acid rain. While very real, they are not reflected, or “internalized,” in market prices. In effect, they are a hidden subsidy for polluting energy sources.
