#Airpocalypse in South Africa.

A new Greenpeace study has found that the little town of Kriel in Mpumalanga is the second-largest sulphur dioxide emissions (SO₂) hot spot in the world after the Norilsk smelter complex in Russia.

The study, which was commissioned by Greenpeace India and released yesterday, cited Mpumalanga as the largest SO₂ pollution hot spot in Africa with the cluster of mega power plants in Nkangala, including Duvha (3 600MW), Kendal (4 000MW) and Kriel (3 000MW) coal power stations producing mega anthropogenic SO₂ emissions between 2017 and 2018.

In the meantime, Africa Greenpeace had barricaded the entrance to Megawatt Park (see photos herewith.)
