This book outlines the environmental implications of several renewable energy sources, including solar, wind, hydro, tidal, biomass, and geothermal. Each comes with its own unique benefits as well as downsides. For example, impacts might include sensitive land use concerns, animal habitat disruption/displacement, noise pollution (wind turbines); hazardous materials use for processing (solar panels and fuel cells); sulfur dioxide emissions, land subsidence/sinkholes, and increased risk for earthquakes (geothermal); heavy water use, nitrogen oxides (NOx) emissions, and smog (biomass).
