As if helping to save the world from the worst effects of climate change were not enough, renewable energy
may also curb workplace injuries and deaths.
That's because fossil fuels as the term suggests have to be dug or drained from underground, and mining
is one of the deadliest of industries. Oil and gas extraction account for 100 deaths each year in the US alone,
coal another 30, not to mention many more non-fatal injuries.
Carbon-sparing energy sources such as solar panels and windmills, on the other hand, are unlikely to take
such a toll on the workers who build and maintain them, argues Steven Sumner, a physician at Duke University
Medical Center in Durham, North Carolina. "Extracting the fuel, generating the power and distributing the
power are more dangerous in fossil fuel energy than renewable energy."
That sounds like common sense, but there's little hard data on the health costs of producing green energy
compared with extracting fossil fuels. One study, a 2005 European Union assessment of the external costs of
different energies, found working with wind power was safer than working with coal or oil. And US Department
of Energy researchers put solar's occupational health costs in the same ballpark as nuclear, though they
ignored the potential for long-term harm from nuclear radiation and catastrophes such as meltdowns.
"We don't know very much," Sumner admits. But as green energy makes up an ever-larger chunk of global
power supplies, firmer data on workers' health should follow.
