Fact Check: #WindEnergy  has some of the lowest environmental impacts of any source of #electricity  generation. Since wind energy does not burn fuel to generate electricity, it does not emit any air pollutants or "fumes" such as carbon dioxide or sulfur dioxide. #Debates2020 

India's sulfur dioxide emissions see first decline in 4 years

India’s sulfur dioxide emissions dropped in 2019, the first decline in four years

India, the largest spewer of sulfur dioxide, sees first decline in 4 years

One Russian company releases more sulfur dioxide into the air than the whole of the U.S. — and with demand for Nornickel's product predicted to nearly double by 2030, these emissions look set to keep rising

@kingsamdrew  Acid rain is more of a result of the release of things like sulfur dioxide and nitrogen oxides released by things like factory pollution. This is a bit different from smoke produced by wildfires which is carbon based.

EPA notes significant improvement in sulfur dioxide levels in Jefferson County.

#ICYMI : Missouri, Ohio, Nebraska and Texas Breathing Clean Air as EPA Proposes to Redesignate Areas in Attainment for Sulfur Dioxide 2010 NAAQS

Big win for our environmental security: the @EPA  has recognized Lancaster County, #Nebraska  for its success in reducing sulfur dioxide levels.

"Norilsk Nickel, the world’s largest producer of platinum and nickel, was responsible for a “blood river” in Siberia in 2016; one of its plants belched so much sulfur dioxide that it is surrounded by a dead zone of mud twice the size of Rhode Island."

A volcano eruption in Hawaii has destroyed 26 homes. Cracks in the ground continue to spew lava and emit toxic sulfur dioxide gas, which can lead to health problems. No word yet on when evacuated residents will be allowed to return home.

#Hubble30 In this Hubble image, released in 1999, the volcanic moon Io appears against the face of Jupiter. Bright patches on Io are regions of sulfur dioxide frost. The black dot next to Io is the moon’s shadow cast on Jupiter:

Sulfur dioxide emissions, an air pollutant typically produced when coal is burned to generate electricity, increased by 50% in India, while they fell by 75% in China over the last decade:

Phivolcs noted that frequent volcanic earthquakes and the increasing levels of sulfur dioxide were indications of magma movement, which may lead to a possible eruption. #TaalVolcano 

The recent eruption of Hawaii's Kilauea Volcano triggered a number of gas and lava-oozing fissures in the East Riff Zone of the volcano, seen by satellites in space. Here, sulfur dioxide plumes from the new fissures are shown in yellow & green:

Fuego, one of Central America’s most active volcanoes, produced an explosive eruption on June 3 that sent ash billowing 1000s of meters into the air. One of our satellites captured this image, while another made observations of sulfur dioxide:

First, it was catastrophic lava. Then, sulfur dioxide. Now, Big Island residents have yet another danger to worry about. Laze -- a mashup of "lava" and "haze" -- is entering the ocean, sending hydrochloric acid and volcanic glass particles into the air.
