August 19th, 2019: New analyses of NASA data on the largest point sources of SO2 – one of the key pollutants contributing to deaths from air pollution worldwide – released by Greenpeace shows power plants burning coal and oil along with refineries are responsible for two-thirds of the anthropogenic SO2 emissions tracked by NASA.
