SAFRICA-ENVIRONMENT-HEALTH-POLLUTION

This picture taken on June 13, 2019 shows a general view of the Schonland coal mine in eMalahleni , part of the Highveld region turned over to mines and power plants. - South Africa has placed a heavy bet on coal for its development -- a fuel that is plentiful, cheap and locally-sourced. But campaign groups say health and climate costs are high. eMalahleni , which means "the place of coal", is among the worst places in the world for pollution by nitrogen dioxide and sulphur dioxide, according to Greenpeace. The NGOs contend that the government has failed to reduce deadly pollution levels in the area, just an hour and a half's drive from Johannesburg.
