Coal Power Plant in China

May 1, 2012
China's carbon dioxide emissions are ranked number one in the world and only about 4 percent of China's cities have a highest air quality rating. Here, a coal power plant in Xian, China, does not have air pollution control devices such as sulfur dioxide scrubber systems. It releases sulfur dioxide directly into the atmosphere.
