Estimating the Global Public Health Implications of Electricity and Coal Consumption
TLDR
An autoregressive model of life expectancy (LE) and infant mortality (IM) based on electricity consumption, coal consumption, and previous year’s LE or IM predicted that increased electricity consumption was associated with reduced IM for countries that started with relatively high IM and low LE in 1965.
Comparative Human Toxicity Impact of Electricity Produced from Shale Gas and Coal.
TLDR
The results of this analysis provide a comparison of relative toxicity, which can be used to identify target areas for improvement and assess potential trade-offs with other environmental impacts.
Health Benefits from Renewable Electricity Sources: A Review
Energy generation has had several negative health impacts over the last few decades, mainly due to air pollution. One of the ways to decrease such impacts is to increase energy generation through
