Russia's Norilsk and South African coal town Kriel top SO2 emissions hot spots: NASA data

JOHANNESBURG (Reuters) - Russia’s Norilsk smelter complex and a town in South Africa’s eastern coal mining province have the highest sulfur dioxide (SO2) emissions in the world, according to satellite data from U.S. space agency NASA.

The NASA-compiled data published on Monday was commissioned by environmental group Greenpeace India and used the space authority’s satellites to track anthropogenic sulfur dioxide emission hot spots around the world.

Scientists say that excessive exposure to SO2 particles causes long-term respiratory difficulties and stunted growth in infants among other problems.

Norilsk, 300km (186 miles) inside the Arctic Circle, has the largest individual SO2 emissions, followed by the South African town of Kriel, about 150km east of Johannesburg, Monday’s report found.

The industrial city of Norilsk is home to Norilsk Nickel (GMKN.MM), the world’s leading nickel and palladium producer.

1. So what? Now you're all concerned SO2 emissions? Quite "selective" are we?
