Focusing only on combustion leads to economically and environmentally undesired effects.– life-cycle includes production, processing, transportation, operations, and recycling– non-emissions environmental impacts include energy input, material requirement, space requirements, animal/plant life, health/safety, and moreAll energy systems need to be analyzed for this full life-cycle effect on the environment, including conventional and “renewables”, to decide on priorities and compare those to the economic impact of switching from one to the other.
