Coal's hidden costs make solar a bargain

Coal's impact on human health is well documented in the scientific literature, but not the accountant's ledger. With more accurate costing solar would look cheap by comparison.

Hopefully the day will come when Alan Kohler points to his daily graph on ABC News and announces knowingly “today the cost of coal has doubled...... there was an unfortunate accounting error in yesterday’s price”. He will have taken a vital step for humanity and human health.
