|dc.description.abstract||Electric energy is an integral element of today's economy and the standard quality of life. The availability of energy at an affordable cost has always been of basic concern because of the intimate relationship of energy to our societal development and progress. Balancing the beneficial aspects of energy use (generation, transmission, distribution, utilization, and development) against its undesirable environmental effects and concerns is one of the major concerns. Fossil fuel plants create air pollution while nuclear plants create radioactive wastes and disposal problems. This paper briefly summarizes current environmental concerns. Particular emphasis in this paper is given to air pollution, solid waste, and land pollution and its effect on human health and concerns.||en|
