IEA, International Energy Agency: This overview presents a short selection of data from the first release of the World Energy Prices database of the International Energy Agency (May 2018). This database includes annual energy prices data for more than 100 countries, for gasoline, diesel, electricity and other products. Energy prices are a significant part of our domestic expenditures, play an important role for industrial competitiveness and influence energy consumption patterns. End use prices paid by final consumers are affected by movements in commodity markets as well as policy decisions.

World Nuclear News: According to the International Energy Agency, IEA, some 6.5 million deaths annually are linked to outdoor and indoor air pollution, "with the number set to increase significantly in coming decades unless the energy sector takes greater action to curb emissions." "Energy production and use - mostly from unregulated, poorly regulated or inefficient fuel combustion - are the most important man-made sources of key air pollutant emissions: 85% of particulate matter and almost all of the sulfur oxides and nitrogen oxides." NOTE: This far exceeds realistic projections of deaths from increased carbon dioxide in the atmosphere. CO2 is absolutely essential for life on Earth. "The more the better." Emeritus Professor William Happer, Princeton U. Physics.
