Does hydro electric energy produce carbon?

    No, hydroelectric power does not produce carbon.  In coal fired power production, it is the coal, which is used to heat water with the resulting steam turning the turbine, that releases carbon.  In a hydroelectric process, it is the energy of the water, whether it be water falling from a dam or waves crashing in the ocean, that supplies the kinetic energy to drive the turbines and create electricity.
