No energy source is completely safe, so it is relatively easy to make a case against any particular source by emphasising its hazards. What is needed is an objective comparison between the hazards of all the energy sources, based on numbers.

This may be done by estimating the numbers of workers killed and injured in the course of producing a stated amount of electricity. This excludes the contribution of long-term effects. It is worth mentioning that the casualties due to energy production are small compared with those due to natural disasters. Thus, for example, the Chinese Seismological Bureau estimated that in the years from 1949 to 1976 about 27 million people died and 76 million were injured following about a hundred earth quakes. Huge numbers were also killed by tsunamis and hurricanes.

Clean Green energy is the term used to describe sources of energy that are considered to be environmentally friendly and non-polluting, such as geothermal, wind, solar, and hydro. Sometimes nuclear power is also considered a green energy source.

Green energy sources are often considered "green" because they are perceived to lower carbon emissions and create less pollution. Green energy is commonly thought of in the context of electricity generation. A fuller picture requires appreciation of efficient energy use as well as mechanical power, heating and cogeneration.

Consumers, businesses, and organizations may purchase green energy to support further development, help reduce the environmental impacts of conventional electricity generation, and increase their nation’s energy independence. Renewable energy certificates (green certificates or green tags) have been one way for consumers and businesses to support green energy.
