IEA comparison of Sources of Electricity

New Scientist compiled the fatality information in the IEA report into a graphic

Environmental and Health Impacts of electricity Generation by the IEA (2002, 239 pages) - A Comparison of the Environmental Impacts of Hydropower with those of Other Generation Technologies

They used an estimate of eventually reaching 9000 deaths from Chernobyl. They included mining deaths from Uranium and other life cycle assessments for all of the energy sources. They also compared land use and carbon generation over the life cycle for each energy source. The results are similar to the ones that I had from compiling other information sources.
