    Energy sources often cause unwanted environmental problems, in economics that's what's known as an externality. We want to get the fuel as cheap as possible, but people don't like paying for the external costs.

    Some forms of environmental damage people are happy to ignore, but other things will be seen as unacceptable: you don't piss where you drink.
