X-Ray near Coal-Fired Plant in China

Photo | 2011-11-04

A print of a medical X-ray of the lungs near the Shentou Number 2 Power Plant, Shuozhou, Shanxi province. This disposal site does not have any safeguards – not even retaining walls – to protect against coal ash dispersal or leakage. With even the lightest wind, the tiny particles of the ash take flight, blotting out the sky like a thick sandstorm of ash. This is highly hazardous to people, as the fine particles are easily inhaled.
