From the deadly smoke used in cooking over an open fire in Guatemala to the contaminated waste produced by a tanneries in Bangladesh, pollution is taking its toll on our air, water, and soil. Toxic Planet: The Global Health Crisis, featuring the work of Pulitzer Center journalists reporting from 11 countries, highlights the consequences of new and old technologies—focusing on environmental concerns, risks, challenges, and possible solutions.
