    A study of air pollution from coal-fired power plants was conducted to determine the health outcomes, including infant deaths, asthma and other lung diseases. In the study, a distance of up to 1000 kilometers from the plant was determined to carry secondary fine particles of pollution. Coal-fired power plants directly emit particulate matter (aka “soot”) and gases that undergo chemical reactions to form fine particles in the atmosphere. These fine particles increase the environmental concentration of soot for hundreds to thousands of kilometers downwind of the plants.
