Bringing the price down from $100 a watt to $20 per watt, solar cells could now compete in situations where people needed electricity distant from power lines. S. make greater use of electricity. [152] Electricity can be produced from a variety of sources. Last reviewed/updated February 04, 2011. < www.nrc.gov > Over 1500 metric tons of plutonium have been produced world wide, some for weapons use, and most of the rest as a by-product of electricity production.

Geothermal power plants further limit air pollution through the use of scrubber systems that remove hydrogen sulfide. Inhalation of radon gas leads to internal exposure to radiation, which varies significantly from place to place depending on the nature of the buildings and local geology. Electricity produced by such facilities could be transmitted to the electric grid, which might reduce the use of fossil fuels in coal-fired or natural gas-fired power plants.50 According to researchers, cellulosic ethanol, if successfully developed, could reduce greenhouse-gas emissions by 85 percent to 95 percent relative to emissions associated with the production of gasoline.51 In the long run, if cellulosic ethanol could be produced on a large scale and if that fuel along with corn ethanol was substituted for gasoline at the levels called for under the EISA mandate, greenhouse-gas emissions might be reduced by about 130 million metric tons of CO2e by 2022, or 6 percent of total projected emissions from the transportation sector and 2 percent of total emissions generated in the United States.52 The technology for large-scale commercial production of the fuel, however, has not yet been developed.

S. have been surprised when anomalously high levels of radon and uranium in domestic drinking water or indoor radon turn up in areas known by geologists to be uranium-enriched. This only means that coal-fired power plants should have reserves of coal in a large area near the plant?s location. The manufacture of every ton of PET produces around 3 tons of carbon dioxide (CO2). And Congress, of course, is under no obligation to appropriate additional money for the Yucca Mountain project.
