  1. The numbers look dodgy at least for electricity. Looking at Physics Today July issue on pp37 Leon Glicksman has in cents/kw-hr

    Nuclear 4-7
    Gas (combined cycle 4-6
    Coal 4-8
    Wind 3-8
    Biomass 4-9
    Solar thermal 12-18
    Solar photovoltaic 20-80

    If the figure were right, no one would burn coal, but oil/natural gas instead.
