The World Bank, EIA mentions,  Most means of energy production come with a considerably high amount of environmental pollution as a by-product. They even allegedly clean and safe energy sources, like wind and water plants, still carry the risk of killing people through malfunction and accidents while setting them up.

Energy costs some 500,000 lives per year. The surprise is that nuclear power is currently the safest option we have. But still, the active waste will accompany us for the next few centuries.

The death rate is higher while producing brown coal; the Estimated Annual deaths per energy source are as follows:

Brown coal - 285,520
Coal             - 214,830
Oil                - 19,680
Gas              - 13,910
BioMass      -  2,060
Nuclear       -  170
